Alma Theatre is always on the look out for exciting production companies to include in their varied programme.

We believe that in order to have amazing theatre every week we need fresh blood, as well as the tried and tested talents.

The Alma Tavern and Theatre are excited to announce that we have now taken our theatre bookings in-house and are on the scout for exciting new production companies to share our stage. We hope that those who come forward can bring a selection of classic pieces, some modern greats and a smattering of brand new, original works as well.

So, if you are just starting out, or have been walking the boards for a while and just haven’t managed to get back to the Alma, we would love to hear from you, or pop by to have a look at the space.
