to the website of the Jewish Theatre Company. We are a Manchester based amateur dramatic society serving the local community.  Our membership consists of children starting from as young as 10yrs to adults of all ages.

We have time served ‘professional’ amateurs who return time and time again but also have new members joining regularly.

Regardless of whether you’re an old hack or a beginner, the Jewish Theatre Company welcomes you to join in the fun and help entertain the community whilst raising funds for charity.

Over the years we have staged some exciting productions. 2014 saw one of the JTC’s most memorable productions in  Yours, AnneA musical drama based the Diary of Anne Frank, which ran for four nights at St Monica’s 6th Form College and was a huge success, being nominated for seven NODA awards (January 2015). Prior to this, our drama project was The Barmitzvah Boy produced in conjunction with The Manchester Jewish Museum. This play was staged at the MJM in June 2013 and was an outstanding success with all 5 performances being a sell out. Wonderful reviews were received from the local press.

Our brilliant musical production in March 2013 was the updated Broadway version of Annie Get Your Gun. This was another great success for The JTC. With an extremely talented cast and production crew how could we go wrong?

We’re delighted that our Musical production, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat was another absolute sell-out with standing ovations being received by the well deserving cast every night. This show won 3 NODA Awards (January 2013) including Best Musical Show, Best Actress in a Musical for our leading lady Aimee Horwich and Best Poster for Howard Yaffe.  We are so proud of all the talent we have in our society.

In 2015 we were pleased to celebrate our fortieth anniversary and come full circle with with our sell-out production of  Fiddler on the Roof, an experience that many in the JTC will remember for many a year to come.

2016 saw the  Mel Brooks’s classic The Producers certainly our most outrageous production yet.  We also performed Quartet to sellout audiences at the Whitefield Garrick, a new venue for us.

2017’s productions were The Wizard of Oz  and The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society Murder Mystery.

In 2018 we performed Dear Brutus by J.M Barrie. Written ten years after he wrote Peter Pan, the play was written and performed during the first World War and is both poignant and funny. Performed in London in 2017, in its centenary year this was a rare chance to see this lovely play in Manchester.

2019’s big musical will be Sister Act.
