MK Theatricals are a brand new theatre company based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. We aim to provide around two shows a year in Sheffield, with the hopes of expanding territory over the next few years. The work produced will be mainly original stage writing, whilst also adapting other popular work and making it our own.
Majority of the shows will be music based, where the scenes will comprise of a blend of acting and dance to tell the story, where we hope to bring a new way of theatre to the UK.
Being new we are looking for amateurs, or people starting out to give them a chance to gain valuable experience in the field they hope to progress in. We are happy, and would be delighted for other professionals to join our company, but please note for the first year we can't offer much in terms of payment, maybe none at all, but we will cover all necessary expenses and make sure you have the most enjoyable experience working for us, and gaining new skills to take into the industry. Most of the individuals who make up the MK Theatricals Team have vast experience in many areas, including stage, screen, acting, dance, and fundraising. Some with even 10 years experience.

The first production coming to theatres hopefully June/July 2020 will have many strong themes covering LGBT, Physical and Mental Abuse, Death, Loss, Relationships, and Friendships, mixed in with some light humour and comedy.
We require a fully committed and dedicated team to ensure we are as successful as we can be.

The schedule is currently very rough, but production looks to be in full swing with rehearsals from March 2021, where majority of the production team will be needed. Some departments might be needed to make preparations from October 2020 to ensure we complete all required tasks.
