DAOS rebrands to Dunstable Musical Theatre Company

At the end of 2017, we took the next step on our journey. The term ‘amateur’ and ‘operatic’ no longer described what we did and even though we all referred to the group as DAOS, media reports still referenced the original name. So we decided to ‘rebrand’ ourselves and look to the future as Dunstable Musical Theatre Company. Here’s to the next 50 years!

A Slice of Saturday Night

In May 2018 we are putting on Slice of Saturday Night at The Rep…..

Slice of Saturday Night made its West End début at London’s Arts Theatre on September 27, 1989. The story tells of seven teenagers who dance and eye each other and flirt on a Saturday night at popular Club A Go Go in a town in the British provinces. Sue is going out with Gary, but he flirts with Penny and the other girls at every opportunity. Sharon and Rick like each other but are too shy to tell each other. Eddie is challenged by the boys to persuade “frigid” Bridget to “touch his whatsit” by closing time, over the course of the night he tries everything, with very little success. The owner of the club, ageing rocker Eric “Rubber-legs” De Vene, watches and lends an ear to the young people as they navigate the rituals of teenage fashion, music, sexual mores and relationships. The show has some great original music in it and promises to be great fun for all on stage and in the audience. 

Monty Python’s Spamalot

On the 19th and 20th October 2018 we will present Monty Python’s Spamalot at The Grove Theatre.

Monty Python’s Spamalot is a musical comedy adapted from the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Like the motion picture, it is a highly irreverent parody of the Arthurian Legend, but it differs from the film in many ways. The original 2005 Broadway production, directed by Mike Nichols, won three Tony Awards, including the Tony Award for Best Musical, and received 14 Tony Award nominations. During its initial run of over 1,500 performances, it was seen by more than two million people and grossed over $175 million
