After the success of our production of Baba Shakespeare, we're delighted to announce that the Tower Theatre Company has again been selected by the Royal Shakespeare Company; this time it's to play the mechanicals in next year's performances of A Midsummer Night's Dream at London's Barbican Theatre.

Well done to David Taylor and the Tower team.

The Tower Theatre Company has been entertaining audiences for over 80 years. All our actors, directors and technical crew get involved for the sheer love of it. The only full-time, non-professional company in central London, the Tower stages up to 18 productions a year. It also tours from time to time, both in the UK and further afield.

The Tower produces shows that compete with the best of the professional London fringe. We stage productions from Beckett to Butterworth, Shakespeare to Sondheim. We seek to tackle new theatrical territory as well as to recreate stage classics, but most of all we aim to inspire audiences with our unique combination of creativity, passion and collaboration.

The Tower Theatre's Artistic Policy : "We aim to provide the widest possible range of high quality, affordable drama, within the resources available, enabling people of all ages and backgrounds to experience every aspect of theatre as a participant or as an audience member."

"Why bother to go to the London theatre at all? There is often better drama on television, and much of the usual West End fare is a disappointment, with gaudy vacuity in the popular offerings, and ponderous, creaking, pretentious scripts in the self-consciously serious new drama.
