Creation Theatre perform classic texts in extraordinary locations. Currently working on their sixth digital stage production. Experts at bringing stories to life in very special spaces and delighting audiences for the last 24 years – from Shakespeare’s The Tempest in one of Oxford’s Industrial Estates; Dracula in the enchanting rooms of The London Library; to Don Quixote in Oxford’s iconic covered market.
Creation Theatre continue to push boundaries and perform in unusual places – now professional actors broadcast live from their homes, with the help of fantastical virtual backgrounds, innovative props and stunning costumes. Creation Theatre’s Home Delivery, a term-time weekly digital adventure for youngsters aged 5-16, bring some of literature’s best loved stories and characters to life. Led by a professional actor – the groups explore fun new ways to engage with classic stories.
Our shows are anarchic, unexpected, fun, lively, quirky, fast and definitely not like any version you’ve seen before.
