Theatre Royal Plymouth

The Theatre Royal Plymouth is a successful regional theatre, serving a large geographical area, with a varied programme ranging from major touring musicals, dramas and operas to new writing and contemporary dance. Original work, co-productions and visits from some of our best national companies ensure that there is something for everyone.

Their Production and Learning Centre provides construction, production and costume services, which also gives the theatre an edge in co-producing and showcasing major productions before their West End run.  Companies from across the UK also use this first-class rehearsal facility and open their shows in Plymouth.

The team now seeks to create more original work, while continuing to co-produce and present others’ pieces. This should enhance the theatre’s artistic reputation on and sustainability, and provide opportunities for new producing partnerships and for staging Theatre Royal Plymouth’s own productions in London and elsewhere.

Our grant for a new post of Executive Producer will give them the capacity to create new work, make more of their relationships and express their artistic vision to the full.

‘In line with our interest in funding work with a national footprint, the grant should enable the Theatre Royal Plymouth to extend its reach.’
