We are passionate about theatre!

Splendid Productions is a theatre company and an education company. We create challenging, vibrant theatre for young people, and we provide expert training in all areas of drama from Practitioner theory to Presentation skills.

Since we began in 2003, we have gained an excellent reputation for both the inventiveness of our performances and the clarity of our teaching. We’re a small company and our priority is providing consistent, high-quality work for a growing band of regular clients. We’d love for you to be one of them!


Stream Kerry's Splendid FAQ for free!

On 9 February 2021, we hosted an online Q&A session with Splendid’s Artistic Director
Kerry Frampton.

Over the years we have regularly received questions from students and teachers about the company’s origins and ethos, and so we took the opportunity for Kerry to respond to these frequently asked questions, starting from the very beginning.

The video - handily edited into bite-sized chunks - is now available to stream for free from the NEW Splendid Shop.

Brand new Top Tip Sheets at our Brand New Shop

We're delighted to announce a new kind of upright Splendid Mind Map: Kerry's Performance Skills Top Tip sheets!

Exploring essential practical skills for performers, these four Top Tip Sheets offer experience-based wisdom-nuggets on the following:

The Top Tip Sheets are currently available only in A4 size, laminated for extra durability and are available alongside all our existing A4 Mind Maps priced at £12, or as part of an A4 pick'n'mix 4-pack for £40.

They are available to order now from our redesigned Splendid Shop (now updated for the 21st century!).

Our new shop makes it easier to order from Splendid's expanding universe of teaching resources, from artwork you can stick to your wall to award-nominated online CPDs you can stream directly into your brain! Come over, have a look and see if you can find all the deliberate mistakes:

Splendid's Streaming Video - update

Splendid's Production videos are now available to stream direct from our new shop website. The films, along with bonus material and subtitles (only selected titles for now - but we're working on it!) join our growing range of CPD and training videos to stream from the Splendid Shop.

All ten production videos, including Dr Faustus, Metamorphosis, Woyzeck and Antigone can be rented for £7.50 for 30 days. A free Splendid Shop account is required (you will create this when you check out), and the videos are viewable on all devices with internet browsers.

You can stream all our videos instantly with payment by credit card/Paypal, and we now offer the option to buy an access code to allow finance offices to arrange rentals for other people, or to pay via invoice/purchase order.

You can see all our titles and watch trailers at the Streaming Video page, and there's more information about getting access and watching here.

Please note our COVID-19 free streaming offer for DVD owners continues for the foreseeable future, and any current access from Vimeo will not be affected.

Splendid online and in person 2021-22

The recent situation has given us an opportunity to perfect our online workshop sessions, whether your students are at home or in-school.

2hr online workshop sessions are available for £150+VAT. We've adapted our usual range of practical workshops to work effectively on Teams, Zoom or Google Classroom.

So far this year we have led online practitioner sessions on Berkoff, Brecht, Artaud, Complicité and Kneehigh, created physical storytelling workshops for devising streamed drama, and devised bespoke text-based sessions. If you're looking for a workshop, our webcams are primed and ready - and so are our masks and hand sanitizers for when schools reopen.

We will continue our UBU tour when guidelines allow, and we will be extending this remarkable production to become our tour for Autumn 21/Spring 22.

You can use our collapsible enquiry form to book an online workshop, get a Splendid practitioner into your building, or express interest in a performance of UBU.
