Theatres in Sheffield

Kristy Stott, Theatre Editor

The city of Sheffield is home to a hugely diverse theatre programme which spans a range of genres and performance styles: classical revivals, new work, large-scale musicals and innovative and immersive theatre experiences.  As well as boasting The Lyceum and The Crucible as world-class stages for current UK touring shows and West End transfers, there is also a keen drive to nurture and develop new creative talent and work with emerging artists. Check out Sheffield’s Theatre Delicatessen for more experimental performance projects.
