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. 

2019 marks the 10 year anniversary of the company and their residency at The Attic Theatre. Since its creation TTB have won various accolades including Winner of Best Family Production and Runner up in The Primary Times Awards at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.  A bit closer to home they have won Arts Organisation of the Year and Team of the Year in the Pride of Stratford Awards and most recently Winner of Fringe Venue of the Year and Fringe Makers of the Year 2018 from the Stratford Fringe Website.

This season opens with our Shakespeare season King Lear and Much Ado About Nothing. We have modern plays Up N Under and Someone Who'll Watch Over Me, classic productions Charley's Aunt, Pygmalion and Great Expectations. Our family offering this year includes Wind in the Willows, Treasure Island and Jack and the Beanstalk. And for those fans of Halloween we present The Haunting a play based on the ghost stories of Charles Dickens.

All these exciting productions plus so much more including Improv Nights, Musical Theatre Nights and Shakespeare Workshops will make our 10 years possibly the biggest and best yet!
