FOR BLACK THEATRE LIVE DERBY THEATRE IS LEADING ON OUTREACH TRAINING AND ADVICE ON PARTICIPATION FOR THE COMMISSIONED TOURS.
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 an Arts Council England award of strategic funding, now means Derby Theatre is transforming from a traditional producing house to an organisation of training, mentorship and artistic excellence.
Led by Artistic Director Sarah Brigham and General Manager Gary Johnson, Derby Theatre is bringing together creative professionals and audiences to tell compelling stories and take artistic risks as we emerge as a vibrant, thriving theatre. We combine this professional programme with an exciting suite of undergraduate and postgraduate courses and an emerging talent programme aimed at developing the next generation of artists. Meanwhile our community engagement programme reaches out across our region including people of all ages and from all backgrounds in our unique offer.
'A generous hearted enjoyable night out and the spirits rise to see Derby Theatre packed, bursting at the seams with laughter and – under its Artistic Director, Sarah Brigham – full of real ambition.'
