In the 1970s, Jim and Mary Roberts started up The Invitation Theatre Company, affectionately know as TITCO. TITCO was simply a group of friends who were super talented, had a passion for musical theatre and who put on knock-out shows.
They did the quirky shows larger companies didn't do because of the small cast and their reputation was phenomenal. They started in Bristol and when they moved to Devizes, they were based at the Wharf Theatre where they regularly sold out two-week shows in the summer slot – all due to their reputation and tenacity of the man at their helm. Mary and Jim both passed away in the mid and late 80s and so TITCO went to sleep.
In 2009 Mary and Jim's daughter Jemma asked her chum Chris to put on a show with her at the Wharf Theatre – it was magical. 'The Rhythm of Life' was a sell out over eight nights, had rave reviews and uncovered young, fresh talent in Devizes who wanted to be part of a musical theatre group. It was at this point that TITCO was rewoken.
Our principles are the same as they were first time round – work hard, laugh hard and put on cracking shows. We hope you come along for the ride and that over the coming years we bring you some amazing musical theatre!
