Theatre brought to life

Rooftop Theatre Company brings theatre to life. From Shakespeare, through classical and modern, to panto, we clearly communicate the story and language of drama and bring out the real spirit and potential of the play. Wherever we perform - theatres or unconventional spaces - we maximise the opportunities provided by the venue by acting up close to the audience, engaging directly and making theatre that is vibrant, real and often very funny!
