Playtime Theatre Company

Playtime Theatre Company was established in 1983 with the aim of taking innovative and imaginative professional theatre to children and young people in Kent. Since then we have grown to become one of the foremost children's theatre companies in the UK, touring both nationally and internationally. We produce between one and three plays per year and give in the region of 200 performances per year, principally in schools but also in theatres, art centres , youth clubs and at festivals. We have a particular interest in foreign touring and in 1993, began a reciprocal touring exchange programme with other children's theatre companies in Europe. To date, we have brought companies from Hungary, Czech Republic, Germany and Portugal to tour their work in Kent and have also collaborated on several international co-productions.. We also run weekly drama and dance workshops for children of all ages at The Horsebridge Arts Centre in Whitstable.
