"The wonderful New Vic" The Guardian

We're the award-winning, professional repertory theatre for Staffordshire. We produce our own plays in a mixed programme that includes accessible classics, contemporary drama, musicals, family shows and the best touring productions.

Our current building, opening in 1986, is famous as the first purpose-built theatre, in the round, in Europe. In our intimate 600 seater auditorium, the audience entirely surround the stage, the action is so close you could almost reach out and touch the actors.

Great value, home-cooked food is served from 10:00 and the bar opens at lunchtime and until 23:00

We do our best to be family-friendly and children go free to many shows.
