About Us

Formed in 2013 by Clare Sykes, United Theatre Company was created with the aim of bringing theatre to as many people as possible while staying true to the core values of entertainment at it’s heart.Their first show “Six” – the emotional labour of love penned over a decade by Clare herself – was met with sell-out audiences and critical acclaim, and it was clear that United had managed to find not only a core cast who were talented and dedicated, but who could capture the public’s imagination.This was continued over Christmas in the same year as United Theatre performed their first pantomime, again written by Clare Sykes. “Cinderella” was once again met with critical acclaim, the magical twist on the classic Fairytale, dazzling and enthralling both young and old audience members alike.

Talent and dedication are not the only things that are universally held by members of the company, for at the centre of everything and everyone to do with United is the pure and simple love of theatre. The love of performing, of making people feel something, of making them laugh or cry, is the greatest thread that runs through the fabric of the company.

But there is so much more to United than just theatre – we are a social company, a place where anyone who enjoys any part of theatre (from performing on the stage and helping behind the scenes, all the way to those who just love to watch a good show) can spend time with people who feel the same. The audience is as much a part of the company as the actors on the boards, as everything we do on stage is to give enjoyment and wonder to those who have come to watch us.

We are a group, a family, who have been brought together because of the wonderful world of imagination, whether it’s a fairytale, a drama, a comedy or a tragedy.

We are United Theatre Company.

Saw Alice in Wonderland last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very professional, and creative thinking too. Watching the children enjoying themselves fansinated me too, especially one child who was so engrossed in the fight scene. Sign of a good engaging show.

Went to see Return of Alice last night! Utterly BRILLIANT! The cast were all great, particular favourites include the mad hatter (made me giggle every time he was on stage!), the Queen of hearts & her epic dancing (yes, she sings & busts some moves!) and of course the misguided white rabbit! You were all amazing and I had a wonderful night. Massive well done to Clare for writing & directing such a fabulous performance!! You are very talented!! If you haven't seen it ... GO! You won't be disappointed! Xxx

Totally blown away by Clare Skye’s The Return Of Alice Panto.. had so much fun watching it! The cast were amazing, the songs were fab, great jokes including the good old ‘they’re behind you’ ones but what amazed me most was the storyline.. Clare is one talented young lady to put this altogether and to think of such a creative story which pays homage to the original. Couldn’t stop smiling throughout. Well done everyone - you totally SMASHED IT! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 BRAVO!! ❤️👌🏻

Alice In Wonderland - The Return is everything a pantomime should be. Full of laughter, singing, dancing and utterly crazy in the best possible way. The script was fantastic and it was brought to life by a brilliant cast who knocked it out of the park. The songs were great & the choreography was superb. Congratulations to all!

Saw Alice in wonderland last night. Such an amazing bunch of talented people. Well written, wonderful choreography and very funny. You can tell that a lot of hard work has gone into the production. If you haven’t yet seen this truly fun filled Panto then it’s a must. Don’t regret not going. I recommended Alice in wonderland ... the return a must see this Christmas. Many congratulations to all concerned.

Sam is by far the best small staged performance I have seen to date, The twist is a simple but effective one and played with passion and emotion from a tremendous cast, The two Leads were utterly sublime with every word and facial expression which is seen in all its pure delight within a hauntingly romantic setting of a warm church. Direction is perfect and it is written with a brilliant mind on superb mis -direction and love. There is a important message in this when the end comes and one many people should listen to and heed it. Well done Sam cast and crew. A true 5* production

Saw Sam performed on April 3rd. It was a very engaging and involving story told in a very appropriate venue. The actors were great, especially the main characters and all the front of house staff were friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed it, and totally recommend it.

Absolutely fantastic show tonight!! Wendy was amazing and so realistic that I forgot for a moment that she wasn't actually, in fact, a 9 year old! Such a passionate and enthusiastic cast even after all of the hours of exhausting work they've put in to get to the high standard to which they perform! The use of the space and lighting and inventive music was superb! I have not one fault for this performance and hope to see more in the future. Thankyou all so much!
