Formed in 2015 in conjunction with the University of Sunderland, we at Atlas Theatre Company strive to bring a diverse range of theatre to the North East. Each year, we do a variety of performances ranging from old time classics (sometimes with a twist!) to contemporary & physical theatre, and even our own original pieces! We run a picnic Shakespeare programme, aimed at making Shakespeare accessible to children. So no matter which aspect of theatre interests you, chances are we have a show that you will love!

Atlas Theatre Company isn’t just an acting group; it’s a family (yes that means it’s full of crazy Aunts and Uncles!) and we are always open to new opportunities, as here at Atlas Theatre Company, all the world’s a stage.

All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.
– William Shakespeare
