On 13th September 2021 we celebrated the creative work of young people across the Cherwell District. Our Symposium event live stream can be accessed here for a limited time only!

Welcome to

Cherwell Theatre Company

Since 2004 we've created an environment where young people can be themselves, make new friends and feel valued. We work  collaboratively to bring their unique qualities and aspirations to life through inclusive community theatre, often in unusual spaces.


We're currently working with social distancing measures in place and online with our young people via Zoom and our CTC forum. For updates on the developing situation with COVID-19, please click below.

Our patron is Sir Trevor Nunn

"I like the way the actors work with you. It's not "I'm an actor, you're a child"
