The Chichester Community Theatre was formed in 2014, and is the brainchild of distinguished theatre director Roger Redfarn, and a group of enthusiastic local business people. From its original concept the Company is growing way beyond the aspirations of its founders
We are a community company who welcome semi professional and ex-professional people, stage management, costume makers, marketing, front of house – in fact anyone from 6 years to 70+ years who would like to join the new and exciting theatre company.
Our aim is: –
“to foster and develop interest and participation in live theatre, workshops, play readings and training sessions for the local community area of Chichester”
We are very aware of the shortage of good performing space in the Chichester area and we have set ourselves an objective of finding or developing a suitable facility to house and carry out the above activities.
If you would like to know more or be part of our future, please do contact us.
