Covid-19 News 

We have made the difficult decision to close the Orange Tree Theatre and cancel any performances until further notice. We are saddened to say that this includes Youth Theatre, Young Company, Over 60s Community Group and all other upcoming participatory projects.

Thank you all for your support in these uncertain times and we hope you all keep safe and well in the meantime. If you have any quereies at all, please contact Izzy on [email protected]


“It lights my heart, I want to sing and dance!” participant, 2017

We run a lively group for anyone aged over 60 who has a keen interest in theatre who wants to learn new skills, find out more about how we make productions, make friends and have fun.  

The group meets on Fridays 11am – 1pm, for 3 x 10 week terms across the year. You can sign up for one term at a time, and it costs £100 per term.

Term Dates 

Spring 2 Friday 8th March – 5th April

Easter Holidays Friday 12th April - Friday 26th April

Summer 1 Friday 3rd May – 24th May

Half Term 31st May – 31st May

Summer 2 7th June – Friday 12th July

The sessions will include play readings, guest practitioners, the chance to create original work and will have a strong link to the Orange Tree season. If you don’t want to perform, you can take part as a writer or director.

No previous experience of performance or involvement in the arts is necessary -  just a sense of curiosity!
