Preview Performances

Preview performances are a fantastic opportunity to see a public performance of a Derby Theatre production in its early stages, at a very affordable price. The creative team are still in the process of applying the finishing final touches to the production, which the great ticket price for these performances reflects.

University of Derby Students

As well as being the place where the Theatre students study, Derby Theatre makes inspiring home-grown professional shows and presents the best of touring theatre from around the UK. Find classic drama, West End shows, and box-fresh new writing on our main stage; while our Studio is the place for innovation, emerging artists and comedy. If you're a University of Derby Student, all this top-quality entertainment can be yours for just £5 a ticket – cheaper than the cinema, more nourishing than a kebab/Jägerbomb/(insert student cliché here).
