The Marlpool URC Theatre Company is an amateur theatre group, based in Marlpool, which is on the outskirts of Heanor, in Derbyshire. The company was formed in 1984, with the staging of “Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”, which was a great success. Since that time, the Company has gone from strength to strength, staging on average two musicals per year, for the last 30 years.

Shows have included Oliver, The Sound of Music, Fiddler on the Roof, My Fair Lady, Guys & Dolls, Jesus Christ Superstar, Our House, Honk! and Oklahoma, to name but a few.

The Company has approximately 50 members, some of which have been in all of the productions to date. The age of our members ranges from 5, right up to some of our most senior members who are in their 80’s.
