About

The Crescent Theatre is one of the oldest theatre companies in Birmingham. The amateur theatre, run by an elected board, stages over 15 productions a year and hosts little and large performances by other visiting companies. The company behind the Crescent Theatre came into being in 1923 when employees at Birmingham City Council performed a Christmas show. The company harboured ambitions of owning their own venue for years and finally acquired one in 1931, repairing it and opening it themselves in 1932. Since then the Crescent Theatre has grown hugely, with many of its alumni entering professional entertainment part- and full-time. Recent plays performed at the Crescent include Equus, Emma and Don Juan in Chicago. Visiting companies include Birmingham’s International Dance Festival, Midland Opera and Birmingham Royal Ballet. It averages around 15 performances a year, hosting future stars and delivering its objective of high quality performances at affordable rates. The state-of-the-art facilities in The Crescent’s main auditorium make any production possible. Audiences enjoy unrestricted views of the stage, and can observe memorabilia and photos of the theatre’s 80 years plus history at the onsite bar. The studio theatre has a smaller capacity size of 120, compared to the main auditorium’s 336, yet remains a flexible and intimate setting attractive to both spectators and performers. Establishing their role in the community, The Crescent Theatre Company aims to engage with schools and colleges through educational workshops and special ticket prices for young people. Workshops and experiences include backstage tours, meetings with the director, designer, and cast, in-house workshops, and cast visits to schools. Theatre-lovers aged between 14 and 18 can also enrol at the Crescent Youth Theatre Company, allowing them to develop their skills and techniques in performance.
