taking theatre beyond the stage

Changeling Theatre was founded in 1997 to produce high quality, entertaining theatre in non-traditional locations for underserved community audiences across South East England.

We take theatre beyond the stage, creating site-specific performances in public locations such as Chatham Dockyard, Dover Castle, Maidstone Football Ground and Boughton Monchelsea Place, as well as community parks, private homes and gardens.

We’re also a talent lab, providing a critical springboard for emerging talent from all disciplines and backgrounds.

Changeling offers something rarely found in contemporary theatre. They offer audiences a chance to become part of the atmosphere.

There is no passive sitting in the stalls here; you will be immersed in and surrounded by the performances, becoming a crucial part of the world created.

Allowing actors the opportunity to relish the audience’s presence, to be reactive, adaptive and interactive whilst performing some of the worlds’ best writing is a rare treat.
