CREATING COMMUNITY THROUGH THEATRE
SAVVY Theatre is an award-winning company, creating ambitious, inclusive productions and theatre experiences that bring different groups of people together.
We are committed to developing innovative, ensemble-based projects that engage with local communities, where everyone is welcomed and involved regardless of their ability or disability, advantage or disadvantage.
The company was founded in 2007 by the current Artistic Director, who wanted to challenge audience perceptions of what participatory theatre is all about. 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.
SAVVY aims to create ambitious and exciting theatre with community casts, raising the personal expectations of both those involved and those who come to watch.
As of September 2019, SAVVY Theatre is now a resident at the newly refurbished Fairfield Halls.
