Established in 1908 we are proud to be one of the oldest amateur theatre companies in the UK. We strive to present the work of William Shakespeare and other wonderful theatre to the Derby audience. An amateur group with professional standards.

Shakers Re-Stirred

Derby Shakespeare Theatre Company cordially invites you to an evening of entertainment in a 1980's cocktail bar. Come along and get to know the waitresses - Carol, Adele, Nikki and Mel. You'll soon discover the characters that lie behind the smiles and politeness that greet you. From cocky lads to arrogant yuppies, drunken girls to sexist businessmen, you'll meet them all! Expect plenty of laughs and a few tugs on the heartstrings, all wrapped up with some great music from the '80's.

Directed by Neil Scott

Tickets available soon from The Duchess Theatre.

Auditions will be held at Shakespeare House, 93 Kedleston Road, Derby, DE22 1FR in the evening on 30th April, and 1st May with potential call backs on 7th May.
