Departure Lounge Festival 2019
Produced by In Good Company, Departure Lounge Festival is the arts festival for groundbreaking work in the heart of the country. Every corner of Derby Theatre and beyond will be brought to life by extraordinary performances, workshops and discussion from Thu 18 - Sat 20 July 2019.
Derby Theatre Associate Companies
Derby Theatre has three associate companies, Maison Foo, Not Too Tame and Milk Presents, whom it works with closely to offer support. All companies benefit from commissioning money, rehearsal space in-kind, the chance to attend artistic programme meetings and feed into the running of the Theatre.
All companies have had a relationship with Derby Theatre for some time, having performed at the theatre and led workshops for the benefit of other artists and companies in the region and further afield.
Regional Young Actors Ensemble
The Regional Young Actors Ensemble is an initiative between three partner venues - Derby Theatre, Live Theatre Newcastle and Hull Truck Theatre.
As part of the programme, the ensemble will present and perform a piece as part of the Hull UK City of Culture 2017 celebrations, which will be directed by Sarah Brigham, Artistic Director and Chief Executive of Derby Theatre.
