A celebration of 55 years of Arena Theatre

In 2021 Arena Theatre Company is turning 55! This momentous milestone marks over half a century of Arena creating extraordinary theatre for young audiences. Along the way we have worked with amazing writers, directors, actors, creatives and crew, so many people that have shaped Arena into the company it is today. We are very fortunate in being able to come this far and we have so many people to thank for that.

 Join us on a trip down memory lane as we relive old shows from the past, places we have visited and people we have met along the way. Our memories will be collected on the map below so click through to see the impact Arena has had over the past 55 years.

To help us celebrate we would love to hear from you. Anyone who has worked for, worked with, been influenced by or even attended an Arena show, please let us know.
