Across both stages we are excited by work which is diverse, relevant, tells important stories, is entertaining, thought-provoking and resonates with our audience.

Main House (up to 517 seats): we programme a diverse range of high quality mid-scale work which sits alongside in-house productions and co-productions. This includes touring productions of 20th century classics, adaptations, musicals, Shakespeare, west end transfers (such as The Play that Goes Wrong), new work from established touring companies (such as Out of Joint and Told by an Idiot). Each season we also have a series of one night events which include high profile dance, concerts, theatrical comedy. For tech specs click here
The Salberg (up to 149 seats): we programme a diverse range of high quality small scale work which sits alongside in house productions and co-productions. This includes new writing, devised theatre, multi-disciplinary performance, gig-theatre and theatre for young audiences (see below). It's an intimate space with audience on three sides and lends itself well to intimate stories and inventive, interactive, contemporary and experimental performance but also to intimate classics or bold, energetic adaptations.
We usually programme shows for a Thursday-Saturday split week, though if we think the show will be really popular we will look at extending the run. For tech specs click here
We also have a varied programme of work for young audiences in The Salberg which often takes place on a Saturday or during school holidays. We programme a range of high quality work for young audiences which includes inventive adaptations of well-known stories and new work which is exciting, engaging, and thought-provoking. We look for work across age ranges from early years to 8+Theatre
Theatre Fest West: We have an annual festival which takes place each spring and is a celebration of work made in the South West. We work in partnership with Salisbury Arts Centre, The Pound, Corsham and Trowbridge arts so that there is the opportunity for companies to tour work to multiple venues as part of the festival. There is also the opportunity for R&D space and work-in-progress sharings as part of the festival. More info here
Companies interested in performing at Theatre Fest West can email a tour pack to firstname.lastname@example.org from May-September.
