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. 

2017 was  a hugely successful year for the company starting with A Christmas Carol performed in Coventry starring the BBC's Trish Adudu and the RSC's Christopher Saul. Since then the company have gone from strength strength and have completed its most successful year to date finishing with Cinderella.

2018 is set to finish with a bang as the Improv Crew present a night of hilarious comedy, A Night at the Musicals brings the Hollywood big screen to our intimate Stratford stage and Aladdin the magical pantomime adventure is the hottest ticket around - get one while you can. 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 this Christmas and New Year!

2019 season is currently being dreamt about by our fantastic creatives and we are looking forward to announcing the excitement to come, hopefully having reflected some of the ideas and suggestions put forward by our wonderful audience and supporters.
