At Derby Theatre we want to share the process of theatre-making with our audiences. Our FREE Theatre Unwrapped sessions are designed to do just that. See what really goes on behind the scenes of making a production, covering everything from lighting design, set building, costume making and even watching the final technical rehearsals!
Our Theatre Unwrapped sessions are FREE and open to anyone aged 14+, but please book in advance to secure your place.
