Do you have a youth theatre section?

How many shows do you do a year?
Currently OTG and OTG Youth Theatre combined expect and aim to put on between 5-7 shows per year. Sometimes it can be up to 10! For more information on what shows are coming up, see our dedicated 'What's On' page by following the menu link above.
Do you cancel outdoor shows if it rains?
This is the question we get most often during the summer! Usually the answer is, we all get wet. The weather has to be truly terrible for a prolonged period for the show to be cancelled. This only takes place when inclement weather becomes a safety concern for both our audience and our performers. If it is safe for a show to proceed, it will. For more information on what shows are coming up, see our dedicated 'What's On' page by following the menu link above.
What should I bring to a open air theatre show?
For all our open air performances we recommend bringing something to sit on, such as a blanket or chair, suitable clothing for whatever the weather is doing, and something to eat and drink. For our indoor performances, just bring your ticket and yourself. For more information on what shows are coming up, see our dedicated 'What's On' page by following the menu link above.

Outdoor theatre near me?
We try and visit as many places as our busy touring schedule allows. Unfortunately, there simply aren’t enough days in the year to visit everywhere we’d like. To see a list of the places we perform, see our dedicated 'Venues' page by following the menu links above.
Why should I become a member/badger?
There are many benefits to becoming a member. Most importantly, you’ll be supporting Off the Ground Theatre, to ensure that we are able to keep producing the work that we do. For a full list of the benefits of OTG membership, see our dedicated 'Membership' pages by following the menu links above.
What is open-air theatre?
Open-air theatre is almost exactly what it says it is. It’s theatre, but outdoors. Often this means there are less effects available in terms of sound and lighting, but this always leads to more creative and imaginative solutions. To see some examples of open-air theatre in action, check out our 'Gallery' by following the menu links above.
What to wear to outdoor theatre?
The best way to know what to wear to an outdoor theatre performance is to check on what the weather is doing, but always play it safe. If you can carry a coat in case things turn sour, then we’d always recommend doing so. Beyond that, wear anything you like to an outdoor theatre performance, though please ensure you wear something.
