TOWER THEATRE

The Tower Theatre Company has been entertaining audiences for over 80 years. All our actors, directors and technical crew get involved for the sheer love of it. The only full-time, non-professional company in central London, the Tower stages up to 18 productions a year. It also tours from time to time, both in the UK and further afield.

 

The Tower produces shows that compete with the best of the professional London fringe. We stage productions from Beckett to Butterworth, Shakespeare to Sondheim. We seek to tackle new theatrical territory as well as to recreate stage classics, but most of all we aim to inspire audiences with our unique combination of creativity, passion and collaboration.

At the Barbican we are treated to members of the Tower Theatre Company. And boy, do the Tower lot fill the Barbican stage! Not a hint of “amateur”, thank you (Camden New Journal)

 

The play-within-a-play climax was achingly funny: people around me in the audience were squealing hysterically. It was one of the funniest things I’ve seen on stage for years. The amateur actors were clearly having a ball and were in total control of the situation. The final dance, involving the whole massive cast, was glorious and joyous – a life-affirming ending to a brilliant performance (Cultural Dessert blog)
