We are Near-ta Theatre, and we create live performance.
Based in Cornwall, our style of fast-paced, comic theatre has delighted audiences of all ages, and over many years we have developed a reputation for creating high-quality original and entertaining productions. With a group of enthusiastic and talented actors, writers, musicians and technicians, our intention is to bring our unique style of comic theatre to audiences across England.
As well as developing original work for the stage, we also have experience of delivering and producing a wide variety of projects, including site-specific theatre, heritage performances, radio plays and community musicals.
Information on current tours, future productions and previous projects can be found here, as well as contact details for the company.
It's back! Near-ta's famous, festive feast returns this December, having first been performed in 2009! And this year we're bringing it all across Devon, Dorset and Cornwall!
Charlie and Toby are feeling low, and why wouldn’t they? It’s Christmas Day and they’re serving time at Her Majesty’s pleasure. But why shouldn’t they be having a Merry Christmas in spite of their incarceration? What’s stopping them from creating Christmas around them? Absolutely nothing! And so they set off on their festival of carols, Claus, Christ and custody!
Join them on a fantastical adventure through Dickens, pantomime, musical, Christmas dinner and Christmas films! See as they build a wonderfully Merry Christmas around them with songs, snowmen and lots of laughs in this truly festive show that puts the ‘cell’ firmly back in ‘celebration’!
Written and performed by Daniel Richards and Ciaran Clarke, and directed by Simon Harvey (o-region, Kneehigh) Christmas. Time. is a musical comedy for all the family and promises to be a fun, festive and fantastically funny Christmas offering from Near-ta Theatre!
