It was with great sadness that we learned that our President Tony Jaggers passed away in the early hours of the 8th of February 2016 following a long illness.
Tony was a fine actor, an inspirational leader and a dear friend to our members over the years and through his hard work and good grace he brought theatre to the people of Derby for decades, both with Derby Shakespeare Theatre Company and through his work with many other local theatre organisations and groups. In recent years Tony led us through our transition from being a charity to a charitable incorporated organisation, a move which will help to ensure the future security of DSTC. It seems a fitting legacy for a man who brought the pleasure of theatre to so many people during his life that he has left us with the means to entertain and share the joy of William Shakespeare's work for untold generations to come.
Our thoughts are with Tony's closest family and friends at this sad time.
DSTC is an amateur theatrical company with professional standards. We specialise in staging Shakespeare's plays in an accessible manner and occasionally the works of other playwrights.
