About Us

Matamata Musical Theatre was founded in by an enthusiastic group of live theatre lovers in 1966 and, we are happy to say, is today still run by an even more enthusiastic group!

Back in the day Live stage shows were very popular and cast and crew were easy to find while the introduction of television definitely saw a downturn in these numbers. We are happy to say that we are enjoying a definite shift back to our corner of the Arts, especially with the introduction of Restaurant Theatre which can include more modern songs and live bands! Young and old are finding these shows great fun to be part of and they are generally staged at the end of the year to catch the Christmas festive season. In May/June we strive to offer a more substantial Musical to offer a greater challenge in Acting and Singing on stage.

For those not personally lured by the thrill of preforming on a stage, we offer a chance to be involved in Lighting, Sound, Set Building, Wardrobe & Catering (to name a few areas we are able to provide a Mentor in!)
