Theatre Orchard’s co-productions
Sometimes we produce our own work if it fills a particular need. We have worked with North Somerset based company Living Spit to produce work for:
Pubs -‘In Cider Story’ and ‘One Man and his Cow’
“World Class Actors at the top of their game”
The FTR on One Man and his Cow
Empty Shops – ‘Devil and the Shopkeeper’ (Parts 1 and 2)
“Tautly Written and Fun Filled Family Entertainment”

And we have worked with Ballet Central to produce our own bijoux ballet for Theatre Shop and Theatre Tropicana. Nutshell Nutcracker was written and directed by Toby Hulse, choreographed by Chris Marney (Matthew Bourney’s New Adventures) and Sara Matthews, with an original score by Jez Butler created entirely by household instruments as befits a tale that starts in a domestic setting but then goes on a rather extraordinary journey.
“Ingenious version of a perennial Christmas favourite, launching a welcome new performance space on the North Somerset cultural scene”
“Nutshell Nutcracker offers an excellent one and a half hour’s Christmas entertainment – an ‘extraordinary night of wishes and dreams’. Recommended. ★★★★☆”
