Forest Forge Theatre Company
Forest Forge Theatre Company is a leading small-scale producing company based in the New Forest. We tour high quality professional theatre to village halls, community spaces, arts centres and other rural locations. We specialise in taking professional theatre into non-theatre spaces and enabling people to access theatre closer to their homes. As a company with its heart in the New Forest we produce new plays that are truly reflective of the communities we serve. We nurture emerging talent and support new writing, bringing exciting and inspiring work to our audiences.
Our Creative Learning programme includes our ensemble youth theatre of over 140 members offering young people unique theatre experiences. We use drama to encourage healthy bodies and active minds, working with people with a range of health concerns. We work with the vulnerable and isolated members of our community.
We engage with over 35,000 people each year.
