Welcome to Theatre in the Quarter

transforming lives through theatre

Theatre in the Quarter is a leading creator of new and quality music theatre, producing work with professional artists and communities, and in doing so making a lasting contribution to all those involved.

Its original productions draw inspiration from the lives and experiences of the people with whom it works. It creates work in exciting places - from cathedrals to railway stations, palaces to village halls. The company’s work is supported primarily by Arts Council England and Cheshire West and Chester Council. Theatre in The Quarter also works with other arts organisations to make exciting projects happen.

Winner: Best Days of our Lives

The project was collaboration between Homegrown Dance Theatre, Theatre in the Quarter and Dee Video, in association with Blacon schools and the Blacon Education Village (BEV).
