“Havering Music Makers (HMM) is a musical theatre society, in Romford and formed in 1976.

Last weekend, HMM performed The Likes of Us at the Queen’s Theatre in Hornchurch.

The Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice musical is based on how children’s charity Barnardo’s was formed in the Victorian East End of London.

Following The Likes of Us, we’ll be performing The Witches of Eastwick at Queen’s on July 9-11 and then Little Shop of Horrors at the Kenneth More Theatre in Ilford on October 15-17.

In the past few years, HMM has performed a variety of shows including Oliver!, Carousel and Godspell.

We have a reputation for high-quality musicals and concerts and put on three shows a year.

We’re a really friendly and welcoming group, who not only enjoy entertaining audiences, but also organise a range of social events.

We’re always recruiting new members, who join for a number 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.”
