About the New Vic Theatre

The New Vic delivers a programme of international-class work made with local audiences in mind.  And, through an extensive community involvement, is helping to make our community a better, safer and more inspiring place to live and work.

Our home is the New Vic Theatre, the regional producing theatre for Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire.  We make around eight major theatre productions each year and, as a theatre-in-the-round, have a special role in delivering Arts Council England’s strategy for theatre.

We are an efficient and effective social enterprise and we recognise our responsibility to provide tangible returns for the public investment we receive.  We actively support the economic, cultural, educational and social priorities of a wide range of national and regional agencies through our professional theatre productions and award-winning community programmes.

The theatre is acknowledged to be a national beacon for the way we make the widest contribution to the wellbeing of the local community.
