New Zealand Music Theatre Company was established in 2017 by Brendan Talbot and Shelley Cocker, who identified the need for a more developed and focused Music Theatre and Cabaret industry in New Zealand.

With a commitment to enhance New Zealand’s Music Theatre and Cabaret industry, NZMTC aims to nurture consistent professional Music Theatre product and practice.

New Zealand Music Theatre Company is dedicated to producing Cabaret and Music Theatre projects that are facilitated and performed by local born, professional artists. We exist to engage New Zealand’s leading practitioners, enabling them to tell stories to be appreciated and enjoyed by national and international audiences.
