About Us

"There is no better theatre company than This Is My Theatre!"
- BN1 Magazine

Founded in 2016 by Artistic Director Sarah Slator we are a theatre company that prides itself on producing classical plays and literary adaptations that are accessible for all

audiences, particularly those living in rural communities. We work with our venues in tailoring the productions to the spaces - be they large or little - to create atmospheric theatre in beautiful settings that prove magical experiences for our wonderful audiences. 

We are a Sussex-based company that tours all across the country taking our productions to a variety of spaces - from churches to cafes, cathedrals to car parks and care homes to coastal forts. We regularly work with charities and heritage sites with proceeds from our shows goings towards the upkeep, maintenance and restoration of the fantastic spaces we are so fortunate to visit.

"This company never fail to impress!"
- Grapevine Live

And there have been some pretty magical moments along the way including a performance of Jane Austen's Persuasion in the grounds of the manor that inspired her works or managing to incorporate a real-life steam engine into several showings of The Railway Children  or how about a production of Robin Hood... In Sherwood Forest itself!

If you are a venue, we try to make hosting us as simple as possible. We are a very self-sufficient outfit with our staging, lights and box-office system. Interested in having This Is My Theatre perform at your venue? Then please do get in touch here.

as specialists in making performances for all spaces, we also create commissioned works to bring to life ideas of venues and engage visitors.

We're a Sussex based theatre company, although we now tour all over.

 

We pride ourselves on creating work for all spaces from historic buildings and churches to purpose built theatres and open-air venues.

Whilst the main aim of the company is to produce classical plays and literature that are accessible to all, particularly those living in rural communities, as specialists in making performances for all spaces, we also create commissioned works to bring to life ideas of venues and engage visitors.

 

We are delighted to work regularly with various charities and privately owned buildings to offer communities high quality theatre locally.

 

Our first production was Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, performed initially at St Botolph's Church, cared for by The Churches Conservation Trust (The CCT) nestled in the South Downs near Steyning. Due to the popularity of the performance we then toured Sussex and Surrey with The CCT later that same year and haven't looked back since!

 

We love the challenge of working in different spaces whether conventional or not so are always on the look out for somewhere new or different to perform. In 2021 we will work with a variety of new spaces as well as returning to those familiar. 

In spite of the Covid-19 pandemic, This is my Theatre grew during 2020-21 and so we created TIMT to manage our growing number of large scale and purpose-built theatre venues. It's still us and audiences get the same great shows-they're just BIGGER!
