Arcola Participation’s community performance companies provide amazing opportunities to get involved in theatre-making, and to learn from experienced professionals.
Arcola Theatre have been pioneers in targeted community theatre since our inception in 2000. We currently run five community theatre companies and each group works with professionals to present new work or re-imagined productions that shatter expectations and challenge preconceptions. This culminates in the annual Creative Disruption Festival, which takes over Arcola Studio 2 for a month of thrilling work.
