Atlas theatre company

Our Story so far...

Formed in 2015 in conjunction with the University of Sunderland, we began our journey as Atlas Theatre Company. Our initial aim was to bring a diverse range of performances to the North East of England through involving Students from the university in performing arts, and allowing students from all backgrounds the opportunity to be involved. We have managed to progress each year, developing and building our Theatre Company to the point where we have now transitioned into offering further community arts programmes.

Atlas theatre company is now running various programmes and workshops throughout the north east of England with the ultimate aim of allowing access to the arts to anybody and everybody that wishes to get involved. We believe the arts should be for everyone.

Atlas theatre company isn’t just another Stage school or Arts Group; it’s a family, and we are always open to new opportunities and challenges. As here at Atlas theatre company, we believe, the arts are for everyone.
