The Society


Formerly known as the Palmerston North Operatic Society, Abbey Musical Theatre has a proud record of providing quality entertainment (over 170 shows) to the people of the Manawatu for more than 100 years.  These shows are organised and presented by a very large number of members from the region.

It is our aim to give people the chance to perform on stage and give them the opportunity to participate in musical theatre to as near a professional standard that amateur theatre is able to provide.

Abbey Musical Theatre gratefully acknowledges support from the following local businesses and Community Funding Trusts;

  • CCNZ/Palmerston North City Council
  • Central Energy Trust
  • Eastern & Central Trust
  • Infinity Foundation
  • The Lion Foundation
  • New Zealand Community Trust (NZCT)

The Palmerston North Operatic Society is a member of Musical Theatre New Zealand (formerly known as the Musical Theatre Federation of New Zealand).
