Support the Original Theatre Company

The Original Theatre Company has shown great tenacity and resourcefulness to flourish since its creation back in 2004, without any public money.

We have made it work on our own terms through nothing short of blind faith, endless perseverance and sheer determination. However as we embark on the next stage of our journey to bring barn-storming, large scale theatre to audiences from all walks of life, all over the country, we need all the help that we can muster… and this is where our ‘friends’ join the fray.

Original Friends is select group of supporters, both private and corporate, who share our creative vision. In return for support, financial or otherwise, of Original Theatre’s long-term development, each Friend will be tailored with a bespoke relationship with the Company, customised to meet their needs and resources.

From as little as £25 per year you can come on board, receive exclusive monthly newsletters, learn about our plans and get your name both in our programmes and here on the website.

We also welcome larger amounts in return for which we tailor-make packages to include some or all of the following: free V.I.P tickets, after show receptions with the cast and crew, back stage tours, invitations to the Artistic Director’s annual dinner, attendance during the creative process and internships. Private shows, corporate training and specific sponsorship packages are also available and we will always work closely with you to ensure that your exact requirements are satisfied.

We thank you for your interest in the company and hope to welcome you onboard soon!
