Charity information

Creation Theatre Company

We are Oxford's largest producer of open-air and site-specific theatre, specialising in Shakespeare and classic stories. We also run a thriving education programme for children and young people.

Founded 1996

  • Mission statement

    We love to share stories! Amazing, inspiring, memorable stories which change the way we look at the world. We love folk tales, fairytales, classics and, of course, Shakespeare. You don’t need a theatre building to make great theatre. The magic happens all over Oxford. We seek out places that have never been used for theatre before, and bring them to life.
    Our shows are beautiful, ugly, fast, furious, wacky, twisted, surprising, spooky, magical, daring, haunting, challenging, inspiring, hilarious, sexy, sassy, cheeky…but never predictable. Our drama training and workshops for the young are shaping the next theatre generation.

    15 years, 45 shows, 350,000 audience members aged 5-95…we are Oxford’s own Creation Theatre Company.
