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 young people and 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 youth and community casts, raising the personal expectations of both those involved and those who come to watch.
SAVVY Theatre is a resident company, in the newly refurbished Fairfield Halls, Croydon.
WHAT SAVVY MEANS TO ME

"Your work will make a huge difference to young Londoners and provide them access to opportunities and activities that they may not otherwise have had."
"Just to say that a week on I am still smiling at Treasure Island - what an impressive production and at such a scale. Great production values and energetic performances. SAVVY is leading the way when it comes to integrated theatre practise. True inclusion at work."
