Hi there, we're Work In Progress Theatre!
We're a dynamic and vibrant company fuelled by creatives who are passionate about sharing important messages through theatre.
We know the impact that theatre can have. The feeling of sitting in suspended disbelief and being transported into a story; of forgetting about our own stresses or worries and watching somebody else's life unfold. And we believe that theatre can be so much more than just entertainment. It can be a vehicle for change. A way to raise awareness about important issues which we relate to, and to inspire audiences to take action. We aim to combine these, creating entertaining productions with important messages at the core of our work.
We want to make theatre which captivates and inspires. We want to challenge our audiences, inspiring them to take action on global issues. We want people to see themselves and their experiences reflected in what they're looking at on stage. And we want to spread the power of theatre, encouraging everybody to find their own voice through the arts.
Have a browse of this site to learn more about what we do, how you can get involved, and how you can support our work. And don't be shy – drop us a line if you have any questions or just want to say hi. We're a friendly bunch and always happy to chat!
OUR ORIGINAL SHOWS
Find out what we're currently developing and how you can get involved
After working non-stop for the last 3 years to bring this company to life; creating several exciting new musical theatre productions and growing to a large core team, we're now hitting pause and pulling on the brakes!
The last several years have been intense, and as much as we love what we do, we're tired. Burnout within the arts is not uncommon and right now we need to recover from what we've done so far, and think about what comes next.
We're taking some time completely off, and then we're going to focus on a period of development behind the scenes. We need time to rest, time to recover, time to restructure, and time to think!
You might not see much from us on social media over the next few months, but we're excited to explore what this time to reflect and rebuild means for the company and what it might lead to in the future.
Thank you for all your support so far. See you in a few months!
