We have a reputation for high-quality musicals and concerts, and put on three shows a year, which we predominately perform at the Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch.
HMM were formed after the Romford Operatic & Dramatic Society folded. Two of its members, Maurice & Eileen Williams, asked for donations from other members to create HMM, with the purpose of performing at the newly relocated Queen’s Theatre in Billet Lane.
We’re a really friendly and welcoming group, who not only enjoy entertaining audiences with a host of shows, but also organise a range of social events, including regular quizzes, summer picnics and barbecues.
We’re always recruiting new members, who join for a variety of reasons. Often it’s to gain confidence or a great way to unwind from the stresses of work, but one thing we all have in common is a passion for theatre and performing. Our most recent past productions have included Hello, Dolly!, Godspell, Crazy For You, My Fair Lady and Oklahoma!
We’ve just finished a successful run of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado, which was a huge hit with our audiences, and we’re now rehearsing for Oliver! We’ll be performing it at the Queen’s Theatre from July 11 to 13.
