Award-winning company Theatre-Rites is a field leader in the creation of experimental theatre for children.

Acclaimed nationally and internationally, our touring productions and site responsive works stir the imagination and stimulate thought. We specifically promote understanding and enjoyment of ‘object-led’ theatre and celebrate the power of visuals, puppetry and animation by working in genuine collaboration with designers, visual artists, film-makers, puppeteers, musicians, composers, actors and dancers.

We believe children should be offered theatrical experiences that are challenging and inspirational and we work hard to create theatre with the same high quality production values and integrity of content as the best adult theatre.

Since 1995 we have pioneered cross-artform theatre for children and family audiences, revolutionising original, non-adaptive theatre for the under 5s and improving production standards in theatre for 5 – 11s. We’ve also pioneered a unique programme of development, training and co-creation activities.

Theatre-Rites is a registered charity and an Arts Council National Portfolio Organisation
