artistic policy
polisi artistig
Our Artistic Policy is to:

Create a high quality, meaningful Theatre Arts experience for our audience.
Create programmes that encourage participation and appreciation of the Theatre Arts.
Recognise Theatre Arts experience as being public and private, immediate and reflective.
Create work that is for, with and about our audiences.
Ensure that our work is both inclusive and accessible.

Our Educational Policy is to:

Design programmes where form and content are appropriate to the developmental levels of children and the wider community.

Commission New Writing ? which is central to the process of creating new work for our audience.
Maintain charges at an affordable level in order to increase access.

Spectacle is always glad to hear from individuals and companies interested in sponsoring or supporting its work.

In 1998, Spectacle Theatre was the first professional Theatre Company in Wales to achieve the Investors In People (IIP) Standard.

The Company has been successful in maintaining this Standard, and places a high priority on continued training for all staff members.
brief history
hanes cryno
Spectacle Theatre Company was formed in 1979. We are the Community Theatre Company for the Glamorgan Valleys and are based in the Rhondda Valley in South Wales.

Spectacle Theatre provides a comprehensive service; performances, participatory workshops, previews and Inset training for teachers. We also provide follow up materials which can be used to enrich the performance and extend the learning experience

We create new work of the highest standard which is both educational and entertaining. We are committed to a partnership with schools and work closely with subject advisors and teachers in order to understand current concerns in the classroom, thus ensuring that our work is both relevant and stimulating.

The role of Spectacle Theatre is to provide opportunities for our community to participate in a practical way with the making of Theatre, whether as spectator or performer, by working alongside the professional artist - every person involved will encounter a unique personal experience that will last a lifetime.

Spectacle Theatre has an international reputation for excellence, innovation and collaboration and continue to lead the way in showing just how effective live theatre can be.
