About Derby Theatre
Derby Theatre has a long and rich history of delivering high quality drama to audiences. Previously Derby Playhouse, our unique new partnership with University of Derby and as an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation, Derby Theatre has transformed itself from a traditional producing house to an organisation of training, nurturing and artistic excellence.
Derby Theatre Productions
Derby Theatre currently produces up to five main house shows each year, along with two Studio shows for younger audiences. An uplift in funding from Arts Council England in 2018 has enabled Derby Theatre to produce additional productions each year, including more work for family audiences and continuing its RETOLD series of productions.
Derby Theatre aims to ensure social justice and inclusivity is at the heart of all we do. We do however recognise that as a predominately white organisation we still have some significant work we need to undertake. We want to let you know what we have done so far and what we plan to do in the future. Published Friday 30 July 2021.
