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.
