Description

Threshold Theatre Company was set up in 1995 to provide a training ground for its parent company, the Norfolk & Norwich Operatic Society. One of Threshold’s objectives is “to train young or inexperienced people to gain a good knowledge of all aspects of the dramatic arts”. The company put on its first production, ‘West Side Story’ in 1995 and in 1997 we gained a National Lottery award from the Arts Council. This was used to provide workshops and training for Threshold members. From its start until 2001, Threshold performed at the Walter Roy Theatre, Norwich, in May 2003 Threshold moved to our present home, the prestigious Norwich Playhouse with our production of ‘Sweet Charity’. The 2004 production of ‘Spend, Spend, Spend!’ was an East Anglian amateur premiere and were honoured to have the attendance of Viv Nicholson, around whose life this fabulous show is based, at the opening night. At the 2008 NODA East annual conference, we were awarded the Shield for best production in the district for ‘The Hired Man’. We were then presented it again for our 2011 production of 'Hot Mikado'

With Hairspray in just under 4 months and Avenue Q just around the corner, it's crazy that we are already starting to look ahead to our 2016 production...but we are! Which show-stopping musical would YOU like to see us perform next and why?

A MASSIVE well done to everyone who auditioned today! Some crazy talent on show and casting was one of our hardest decisions yet! Results should be up on the site and emailed round within the next few hours.

Costumes are packed away, Set is in storage, Wigs are back on their blocks, Hairspray cans are empty and the streets of Baltimore are peaceful once more! We would like to thank everyone who played a part in making Hairspray such an amazing production and to you, the audience, for making it our first EVER sell out show! No rest for the wicked though, only just over a month now until Avenue Q auditions - if you would like to be part of the cast or crew, head on over to our webpage to apply (tickets also available too!) Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all at TTC xxx
