Tread The Boards, Award winning Theatre Company
in Stratford-upon-Avon

Established in 2009 by Catherine Prout and John-Robert Partridge, the company are proud residents of the The Attic Theatre in Stratford-upon-avon . This intimate, riverside venue has also been named 'No.1 Fringe Theatre' in the town. 

2018 saw incredible productions which reached new heights with more audience members enjoying everything from the drama of Shakespeare to the light-hearted traditions of pantomime and everything in between. Performances including John-Robert Partridge's 'unmissable' Richard III and Matilda Bott's beautiful Dorothy accompanied by original sound-tracks by Elliott Wallis and inspired sets by Daniel Arbon and Zoe Rolph made this year a step above the rest. Aladdin sold out over half of it's run, giving the team a wonderful end to the season and The Comedy Improv Crew and Night at the Musicals fundraising evenings launched with fan-bases growing each time. 

We can also confirm that we now have wonderful new heating in the theatre with many thanks to generous support so we hope to warm your toes as well as your hearts; air conditioning hopefully being installed in the Spring!!!

The 2019 Spring - Summer season now has titles confirmed, a few in the final preparation stages and due to be closely followed by Autumn - Winter announcements so you can book those all important panto tickets before they sell out.

We are so excited and want to thank everyone who has made 2018 such a huge success, our cast, crew and volunteers work tirelessly to bring the very best entertainment to this unique and intimate venue and we cannot wait to welcome old friends and new for this years extravaganza - check out our offerings so far on our What's On pages!
