About Us

Crigglestone Theatre Company (more fondly known as ‘Crigg’) was established almost 60 years ago.

We are a lively bunch of thespians who rehearse at Crigglestone WMC on Monday and Thursday evenings. We have performed at various venues, including Theatre Royal Wakefield and Wakefield Arts Centre.

To suit everyone’s talents we perform musicals – old and new, cabarets, plays and pantomimes! We take to the stage twice a year but also enjoy responding to requests from the local community which has seen us perform far and wide. Our commitment to Wakefield and the surrounding area has taken us from Pinderfields Spinal Unit providing Christmas entertainment, to a Light Switch On in Horbury and going on tour entertaining our friends and supporters over the border into South Yorkshire!

Our thriving younger section – Kids from Crigg - also rehearse at the same venue, same days, 6.00pm – 7.30pm from age five for their annual production, and our contact is Anne Clarke. They perform musicals and cabarets to a very high standard and clearly enjoy themselves!

We are a sociable bunch and actively encourage new members for front of house, back stage, performers or administrators and also enjoy the odd night of frivolity from time to time! If you are interested we would love to hear from you – our Contact Us page makes this very easy!
