We know that we make theatre in a place where creative talent and excellence thrive. As well as sharing our work, made here in Staffordshire, with local audiences, we also take our work out across the country, to share with audiences far and wide.
In July, we embarked on a major national tour, taking our much-loved production of Around The World In 80 Days on a six-month journey across the UK in partnership with producers Kenny Wax Family Entertainment and Simon Friend, and in association with the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester.
Touring until 20 January 2018
