Classworks Theatre was founded in 1983 by the two Artistic Directors, Claudette Bryanston and Jenny Culank. At just 30 pence per session, Classworks started the first ever youth theatres in Cambridge and secured HRH Prince Edward’s first ever Patronage. The groups toured to Germany, Finland and Poland and visited the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for many years where in 1988 they won the first ever award given by The Independent for Best Production with The Heart of a Dog, by Mikhail Bulgakov.

Classworks has since developed a professional touring theatre company with a focus on new writing for young people, and has toured annually, nationwide for the past 7 years. Together the youth theatre and the touring company has commissioned and produced over 60 productions, and consistently provided outstanding opportunities in theatre for and with young people. Classworks is a resident and associate company of The Junction, Cambridge and has developed partnerships with venues such as Theatre Royal, Plymouth, The New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich and The Belgrade Theatre, Coventry.

Classworks is a registered charity, number 1100612 and a private limited company, registered in England
and Wales number 4765516.
