What's On

Find out about our latest events, shows and plays that are being performed and run locally this autumn and winter.

Highlights of the past nine months have included two shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, along with local productions of Jack The Ripper, A Christmas Carol and our first ever musical 'Talkies'.

Future - Proof

Our Future-Proof scheme aims to provide accessible opportunities for teenagers and adults to gain experience working within the theatre industry. 

We have found some fantastic talent since launching the programme in the summer and have provided roles within directing, lighting, producing, choreography, make-up and prop creation. Read on to find out some of our 'Future-Proof' stories.

The Academy

Onyx provides a rewarding and safe environment for our performers to learn more about musical theatre, acting and dance. 

Our trained and DBS checked teachers are always on hand to support pupils and our shows will provide vital ‘live’ experience and a platform for them to have fun and achieve their performance goals. We aim to focus on musicals and dance shows that challenge our performers and provide audiences with fresh material.

Ways to Get Involved?

There’s so many ways to get involved in theatre with us, ranging from those wanting to direct a performance to playwrights wanting to submit their own ideas. No experience is needed and we’re always looking for volunteers to help create props and set for our productions and help backstage.

What People Are Saying...

C&D is so wonderful because it works for and within our community; it's inclusivity allows theatre to reach people from all works of life, something that is so important in the modern day.
Rachel Coleman, 17.
I first came to C&D Productions as photographer for their performance of Dorian Gray in February 2015 and have been back for every production since then! It has been great for me in terms of my work but has more recently also given me a platform to branch out a little into other creative processes behind the scenes of theatre, which is fantastic.
Theresa Haworth, 29
I'd given up on the prospect of ever getting back on a stage after having not done anything performing arts related in more than 20 years, but I was attracted to C&D Productions as they staged quality classic plays that I preferred to act in as a drama student. I was really nervous as I was so out of practice but soon felt right at home. I am now one of a mixed bunch of members comprising all ages and abilities and I take great pride in being part of an all-inclusive company.
Roxanne, 42.
C&D has completely changed my life for the better because the company put on brilliant productions and i have worked with the best actors and directors as well. This company is going from strength to strength and i can only see improvements!
Owen, 20.
C&D have really given me a lot of self-confidence and that is down to the team in placing running it and the fantastic casts I've been part of.
Justin, 32.
It has been lovely to see the amount of different people getting involved with the theatre company over the last few months, both on stage and backstage. Everyone, cast and crew, pulls together to get a production up and running, and the team is like one big family that everyone feels a part of - no one is left out.
Theresa Haworth, 29
C&D Productions are an incredibly friendly group of people, I feel I have found a second family. I have enjoyed working with them more than any other social activities and always look forward to the next show!
