Derby Theatre Productions

Derby Theatre currently produces up to five main house shows each year, along with two Studio shows for younger audiences. 

After being awarded a 59% uplift in funding from Arts Council England in 2018, Derby Theatre has been able to produce additional productions each year, including more work for family audiences and continuing its RETOLD series of productions.

The uplift in Arts Council England funding has also allowed the theatre to develop its work for Deaf community within Derby and surrounding areas, as well as taking its mission to support the next generation of artists in the region even further.
