Saffron Walden Musical Theatre Company is an award-winning theatre group which presents popular musicals, operas and light operettas. Based in Saffron Walden, Essex, the company presents two shows a year through its adult group and its youth wing.

In its history there is hardly a show that SWMTC has not tackled, performing works by all the major musical theatre composers, including Rogers and Hammerstein, Lerner and Loewe, Lionel Bart and Stephen Sondheim. It has also presented the operettas of Gilbert and Sullivan, Franz Lehár and Johann Strauss II.

Members of the adult society put on a show annually in the spring. These productions take place in Saffron Walden Town Hall. SWMTC’s Youth Group perform in the autumn each year and feature performers who range from 11 through to 18.
