Merlin Theatre Productions is the in-house production company at The Merlin theatre in Frome. We produce and deliver a minimum of two shows each year, our Autumn show and our Christmas show. Sometimes we have additional shows such as our MTP24 shows or other fundraising productions.
Every penny of profit we make as a production company goes straight back into the Merlin Theatre. It pays for future productions as well as helping pay towards any new equipment that may be needed from time to time. The Merlin Theatre, like so many other independant theatres, lost all of it’s funding several years ago and since then we have had to find new ways to not only survive but ensure that the Merlin Theatre is able to deliver high quality shows from local and national performers.
Our members are the loveliest people you could hope to meet, full of energy, ideas, and dedication. They are never afraid to pitch in with other aspects of productions whether that be spreading the word about our shows, helping to paint the set, designing posters and programmes or even just supporting our wonderful performers when not on stage themselves.
Merlin Theatre Productions is led by a board of volunteers who each bring their own unique skills and experience to the group and are always looking for ways to continue deliver the high quality performances that the audiences of Frome have become accustomed to. but to also expand on this and find ways to deliver new, exciting content and push our selves in new directions all the time.
