Derby Theatre Productions

Derby Theatre currently produces three Main Stage each year, along with a Studio Christmas show for younger audiences. 

From 2018, having been awarded a 59% uplift in funding from Arts Council England, Derby Theatre will produce an additional production each year for family audiences.   The Theatre will also continue with its RETOLD series of productions.  RETOLD is a series of new one-woman plays commissioned by Derby Theatre, from some of the most exciting female voices in contemporary theatre today. Derby Theatre’s aim is to crack open classic tales and see the story afresh from the perspective of a female character.  

The uplift in Arts Council England funding will also allow the theatre to develop its work for D/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.
