Community 25

Community 25 is our first community engagement scheme which aims at providing access to theatre productions. We know from speaking to local commnity groups and charities that many of their users and members would benefit greatly from being able to attend local shows,

In response to this and research done by groups such as Age UK we have decided to open up our shows to such groups and provide a minimum of 25 tickets per show for free. This enables local people who wouldn't otherwise be able to see our shows to do so and provide a vital experience for those suffering the likes of dementia.

This follows on from our own fantastic work in welcoming performers with differences into our theatre company. We've welcomed people with ADHD, autism and cerebal palsy into our group and these have gone on to act for us and work behind the scenes backstage.

If you are part of or aware of a local group or charity that would benefit from being part of Community then please get in touch and we can discuss getting you involved. So far we've provided over 100 tickets to 4 different groups within Northants included groups in Kettering, Corby and Wellingborough. 

 

What's On?

Our year-long programme of activity ensures that we always have events on the horizon for adults and children to become involved with. Our Upcoming Shows section outlines what the next productions are which we're performing and it's also easy to look at our previous work to see the variety of productions we've staged and which festivals we've performed at.

 

Individual Support

Being a non-profit theatre company we rely on the support of the local community and generous donations to help our continued outreach work. People wanting to help can do so by donating their time, skills or funds to us or by becoming a supporting member via our Membership page

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!
