Overview

Think about those books, the ones that you'll always go back to, those moments in life where you think 'that's a bit like that chapter' or 'you're just like that character', those are the stories we love. We don't just want to leave those books on the shelf though, we take them down, hand them around, share them out and bring them to life. All over Oxford we find unusual spaces - these stories aren't set in theatres so we don't put them there. Castles, antique mirror tents, college gardens, bookshops and factories... we'll go wherever the stories take us, and so far we've taken over 500,000 people with us. From the thousands of children who've told classic stories in new ways through our education programme, to our professional actors and directors, you're always most likely to find us lost in a good book. 18 years, 54 shows, half a million audience members aged 5-95...we are Oxford's own Creation Theatre Company.

Creation Theatre provides innovative performances, even when working with familiar material. I always look forward to their shows and I am never disappointed. They work in many venues, so it's hard to answer the standard survey questions about things like the accommodation for strollers or...More

The week-long workshops run by Creation for young people in Oxford during the holidays are fantastic. Our son attended a workshop for The Odyssey this year, which they performed in 30 minutes at the Ashmolean - a great setting. He enjoyed it immensely, the play...More

The Creation Theatre Company production of Alice was charming, original, and great fun for all ages. The children were mesmerized (and a few were thrilled to participate) and the adults, most of whom did not have children with them, were equally delighted with the performance....More

We were lucky to choose a fairly nice evening to see 'Alice' in Uni Parks. What a truly wonderful show. All four actors were a joy to watch - had great chemistry and huge amounts of energy. It was incredibly funny and imaginatively put together....More

A great performance. Creation are back on form. This is very encouraging as sometimes in the past they have been a bit "hit or miss".

The Creation team have delivered a fantastically enjoyable interpretation of this great story. Wonderfully different, inventive and very funny! Great acting from the minimalist cast, I would recommend this for everybody, catch it fast before it ends!

As far as I am aware Creation Theatre use different venues for different productions. Check out their website or ring Box office. Always very helpful.
