We are a theatre, and so much more besides! We have been performing for over 40 years, and our inclusive creative process is renowned nationally and internationally. Our purpose-built venue plays host to a huge range of productions and activities across the whole year, offering a welcoming, creative hub to the community.
We create in-house productions that take place on our main stage, The Rayne Theatre. We also present regular interactive shows for very young children, new and smaller scale work for adults and families in our intimate Studio Theatre and have a busy programme of live music and comedy events in the Bar.
But that’s not all - we run weekly sessions for our Children’s and Youth Theatre members, Saturday and holiday activity workshops for 5-12s, with performance and singing workshops for adults too.
We also offer a unique opportunity to learn and perform in a working theatre. We run three nationally accredited education courses at Foundation Degree, BTEC and BA level - and are rated 'Outstanding' by OFSTED.
