“I was made to feel so welcome that it felt like I had been a member for years.  My nerves disappeared in minutes and now I have performed in my first show I don’t know why I didn’t get involved years ago”

“My first visit to a TOPS show and it won’t be my last.  So much talent, it’s hard to believe these actors are not professional.  From acting to costumes I couldn’t fault this wonderful, wonderful show”

“Spectacular, enthralling, moving, colourful and classy. The attention to detail was magnificent!”


Is a non profit making group governed by a committee of members.  TOPS ON STAGE Charity is managed by four trustees whose objective is to support the artistic development of TOPS and further encourage both performers and audiences to enjoy the shows we stage.

Whether a regular attendee or someone just joining us for the first time, welcome to TOPS ON STAGE.  We are a forward thinking musical theatre group based in Thurrock.  We stage two full musicals a year which we rehearse using local actors.  Our shows are cast by open audition so anyone can come along and give it a go.  This process allows our creative team the ability to cast the very best and it is that policy which has earned us a great reputation with our supporters.


“I went right home and washed that show right out of my hair!  It was an amazing South Pacific, the actors were superb and it never ceases to amaze me that these people aren’t professional”
