This year we celebrate 10 years of productions under the banner of King’s Company and we are a group of teachers, students, technicians, parents, professionals – in fact anyone who wants to lend a hand in producing first class productions for the school and the wider community. We are based in Ely, Cambridgeshire.
Each year there is a breath-taking number of shows, which include a musical theatre production, contemporary and classical studio pieces and academic showcases.
Recent productions have included:
- The Merchant of Venice
- Much Ado About Nothing
- Jesus Christ Superstar
- Oh! What A Lovely War
- Les Miserables
- The Electra Project
- Into The Woods
- National Theatre Connections – The Accordion Shop
- Whistle Down The Wind
- National Theatre Connections ‘Heritage
- We Will Remember Them (a commemorative piece for the centenary),
- Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
- The Cagebirds
- Iphegenia in Orem
- Guys and Dolls
- National Theatre Connections – The Mobile Phone Show
We strive to put on the spectacular, moving, energetic and stimulating pieces of theatre for a contemporary audience.
