Sheffield Theatres is home to three theatres: the world-famous Crucible, a Sheffield landmark with a distinctive stage and a reputation for producing brilliant drama, the Studio, an intimate, versatile space that puts you right at the heart of the action, and the beautiful Lyceum, the gleaming traditional theatre that hosts the best of the UK’s touring shows. It’s a place to try your hand at acting; a space for artists to practise and hone their craft; a place to play, explore, imagine, create. It’s a place for everyone.
Sheffield Theatres has a reputation for bold new work, and this year has produced new musical Standing at the Sky’s Edge, with music and lyrics by Mercury Prize nominated Richard Hawley, which was awarded Best Musical Production at the 2019 UK Theatre Awards.
This was followed by the dazzling new adaptation of Life of Pi, which delighted sold out audiences and critics alike and won five awards at the 2019 UK Theatre Awards. It was announced in October that Life of Pi will be transferring to London’s Wyndham’s Theatre from June 2020.
Next comes a major musical production of the spectacular Guys and Dolls. For 2020, Coriolanus in the Crucible directed by Sheffield Theatres’ Artistic Director Robert Hastie and starring Tom Bateman; then a co-production with Paines Plough and Soho Theatres comes the World Premiere of Run Sister Run by Chlöe Moss.
