Theatre Royal Stratford East

Borough outskirts

Theatre Royal Stratford East was built in 1884 and
has a long and varied history of producing plays for
the people.
Musical Theatre is a key priority for Theatre Royal Stratford East.

Our vision is to break new ground with musicals that
bring contemporary and urban music into the mainstream
of British theatre.

The aim is to revitalise the musical form, to create
work that is relevant to and informed by today's
modern Britain and attract new diverse audiences.

To realise this vision, in 1999 we launched our
Musical Theatre Initiative, giving writers and
musicians a development process to bring their own
voices into the context of theatre, both using
words and music or beats.
