We are front door theatre

We are a theatre company based in the East Midlands. Collaborating with theatre venues, artists and local communities, we create theatre experiences in the community, at your home, in village halls, or in a theatre venue. 

We make shows just about anywhere to be honest!

Artistic Director - Daniel Ellis

Daniel is a freelance Theatre Maker based in the East Midlands, having trained at the University of Derby Theatre gaining a first-class honours degree in Theatre Arts. Since graduating he has been working with theatre companies across the country on a wide variety of different projects. Daniel is a very keen Director, Sound Designer, Stage and Production Manager.


He is a strong believer that as a Theatre Maker you do not have to choose one discipline within the arts and that it is important to develop the areas that interest you, as they all compliment the whole process of making art. 

More recently Daniel was chosen to be 1 of 12 local artists to take part in Derby Theatre’s Co-Creation training. A 12-week initiative to develop his creative practise led by practitioners who specialise in working with communities and creating co-created art. This was, a part of ACE funded Producing Hub programme set up by Derby Theatre investing in artists who are interested in making work with Derby communities.
