About Us

Originally founded in the 1960s the Worcester Repertory Company has played host to some of the finest names in theatre. Award winning directors such as John Doyle, David Wood OBE and John Hole have all had residencies with the Rep. and many prestigious actors have carved out their careers on the Swan Theatre’s stage. Now staging productions all over UK and internationally the Worcester Repertory Company has been given a new lease of life with a refurbished main house and studio theatre whilst producing everything from pantomime and Shakespeare to new work and theatre-in-education tours.

Our company is committed to utilising the very best professional talent from the West Midlands area as well as bringing artists from all over the country to work with us.

A message from our patron

A message from our patron

IMELDA STAUNTON CBE

Former member of the Worcester Repertory Company & Patron of the Swan Theatre, Worcester

"I started my professional career at the theatre with The Worcester Repertory Company in the 1970s and still have fond memories of my time there. Theatres outside London (and sometimes in London) have always struggled for money, so please do what you can to help the theatre survive. 

Most importantly, keep coming to live theatre. That more than anything else will keep the Swan healthy and thriving!"
