Community Production

As a building built by and for the community, our community productions are at the heart of what we do. Bringing people of all ages from across Huddersfield and Kirklees together to tell incredible stories.

Our community productions are a chance for local people to star on our stage in a fully produced show. Our previous community productions have all been adaptions of classic plays or stories with an added Lawrence Batley Theatre twist and have included Henry V, our ★★★★ (The Stage) animated version of A Christmas Carol, Macbeth, The Tempest and Frankenstein.

Our community production is for everyone. It’s open to all ages, and we would encourage anyone who is interested to get involved.

We haven’t announced the title of our community production for 2024 yet, but the shows will be taking place from Thursday 12  – Saturday 14 September. Save the dates!
