Bedworth Theatre Company have been producing live theatre to the populace of Nuneaton and Bedworth since 1973 celebrating the opening of Bedworth Civic Hall with our first major production, “The Blue Goose”. Under our original name “The Bedworth Players”. However, people thought we were a football team so we changed it to “Bedworth Amateur Theatre”. Latterly, however, the ‘amateur’ bit was felt to be inappropriate which resulted in another change to “Bedworth Theatre Company”.
Despite gaining a great reputation for performing professional quality plays, we are run entirely by volunteers and are fuelled by enthusiasm and passion rather than by money, and so can provide low cost entertainment of very high standard.
We usually put on at least two productions a year in the Studio Theatre at Bedworth Arts Centre as well as an entry in the Nuneaton Festival of Arts, in May.
The group has, over the years, presented many successful plays such as “The Hollow”, “Pygmalion”, “The Railway Children”, “Toad of Toad Hall”, “Oliver Twist”, “Educating Rita” and many, many more (see Past Productions).
