The Children’s Theatre Partnership (CTP) was established in 2010 to produce and tour bold, ambitious and imaginative theatre for young people. Our aim is to excite and engage new and diverse audiences, often introducing them to the theatre for the first time, bringing communities to their local theatres, inspiring a life-long love of theatre and supporting the UK’s most talented artists.

CTP has successfully produced eight shows for a loyal network of theatres around the UK, bringing two to the West End and reaching over 800,000 people. Previous productions include the Olivier award-winning “Goodnight Mister Tom”, “Unexpected Twist”, “Swallows and Amazons”, “The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas”, “Running Wild” , “Holes” and new versions of “The Jungle Book” and “Animal Farm”.

CTP is a not for profit company managed by Fiery Angel and supported by Arts Council England.

Thanks to Arts Council England, CTP has funding for three new shows, Holes (2020), Animal Farm (2022) and Unexpected Twist (2023).

We also run a full education programme led by Blackpool Grand Theatre, leaders in this field who will particularly be focussing on encouraging young people’s individual resilience. With Get Into Theatre we will be nurturing new talent by showcasing the hundreds of rewarding careers in theatre.

This is an exciting new chapter in CTP’s life and we look forward to welcoming you at our shows.

The Children’s Theatre Partnership is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
