Theatre & Drama

The East of England has spawned a myriad of theatrical types. Academy Award-winning actors Sir John Mills and Olivia Colman grew up in Great Yarmouth and Norwich respectively, two-times Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes was born in Ipswich, while Hollywood A-lister Hugh Jackman regularly returns to Norwich to visit his mother and watch his beloved Norwich City FC.

The region also enjoys more than its share of theatrical offerings. The New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich is internationally known for its consistent output of daring new works, while the East of England’s largest entertainment venue, the Ipswich Regent & Corn Exchange, hosts huge touring productions and big-name music events.

Elsewhere in the region, the Theatre Royals of Norwich and Bury St Edmunds have become mainstays of the repertory circuit and consistently stage productions fresh from London’s West End.

In addition, the East is home to a wide range of professional touring companies, including the Ipswich-based Eastern Angles, who specialise in rural touring, site-specific theatre and new writing – and Norwich musical theatre lovers Sound Ideas, who have morphed from being a bunch of mates singing around a piano in a garage to becoming a multi-award-winning troupe in just over five years.
