Full Description of Organisation

Theatre Royal Bath Ltd has been a registered cultural charity since 1979. A functioning theatre venue since 1805, the Grade II* listed building comprises three auditoria: the Main House, the Ustinov Studio and The Egg Theatre – a dedicated theatre for children and young people and their families. Its charitable purpose is to offer a varied and high quality programme of theatrical entertainment and to provide creative education opportunities for the public. Led by Danny Moar, Theatre Royal Bath Productions Ltd creates productions that attract world-class talent. Theatre Royal's own productions are a mainstay feature of many touring theatre programmes nationally, internationally and in the West End. Profits from this work and the sale of tickets in the Main House subsidise the charitable operation. The Ustinov Studio is renowned as a 'little black jewel' of a theatre. Ustinov Studio Artistic Director, Deborah Warner, has won accolades around the globe for her work in music theatre in the most prestigious theatre and opera venues. The Egg, led by Kate Cross, MBE, is internationally acclaimed for its trademark philosophical style and is the UKs foremost regional children’s theatre producer. Working closely with Bath Spa University, Bath College and Bath Cultural Education Partnership, TRB furthers the creative and cultural education agenda.

 

Theatre Royal Bath has welcomed the most celebrated theatrical talent throughout the decades from Sarah Siddons to Peter Hall, Charlton Heston to Ralph Fiennes. In turn, the Theatre buildings and resources are made available to young people, our community and emerging artists to learn their trade alongside professional theatre makers on live productions. Since 2022, the Theatre has been committed to distributing free tickets to state schools through the Wonderfund.
