Blue Elephant Theatre and Covid-19

Like most theatres, we are going dark at the moment. We have cancelled "Treasure" on March 23rd and all our Participation sessions.

With impeccable timing, we issued a call-out in early March and remain very happy to receive applications for shows for the future although, for the time being, we will find it difficult to discuss absolute timescales. We work on a 50/50 box office split basis. We give fundraising, press, marketing and general support to our companies and artists, and rehearsal space where feasible. For more information, click here.

We have also put together a list of organisations and resources who may be offer help and advice to our local community - please click here for further information.
