This is SAVVY

SAVVY Theatre is an award-winning company, creating ambitious inclusive  productions and  theatre  experiences that bring different groups of people together

As an inclusive theatre company, it is important that we provide a range of opportunities for  everyone  to Take Part, whether it's performing in one of our ongoing weekly groups, as an artist working or training with us, a participant or partner in one of our special projects, or as audience coming to experience our shows.  

 

​The company was founded in 2007 by the current Artistic Director, who wanted to challenge audience and cultural perceptions of participatory theatre. Going to the theatre shouldn't be a chore.  
It shouldn't be something you are forced to do because you happen to know someone in the cast.
It should be invigorating, memorable, exciting, challenging, uplifting and fun.
It should make you want to come back.

 

We are committed to developing innovative, ensemble-based theatre shows and special projects that build the bridge to engagement and provide  access  to  quality  work.  SAVVY is a place where everyone is welcomed and involved regardless of their ability or disability, advantage or disadvantage.
