About Tip Top Productions

Theatre masks

Tip Top Productions is a community theatre company based in the heart of the City of Chester.

In August 2007 we began to lease part of the old Chester Gateway Theatre. We appreciate the support we receive from Cheshire West and Chester Council, particularly the many signposts in and around the theatre directing audiences to the Forum Studio Theatre . In 2011-12 we enjoyed audience numbers in excess of 12000 for our wide ranging programme.

Tip Top welcomes anyone irrespective of his or her experience; all we ask is commitment for whatever task you agree to carry out while working with us.

Typically our season consists of 10 productions including plays, musicals, pantomime and in June we are privileged to present a summer musical at Clwyd Theatr Cymru, Mold. We are also a receiving theatre for professional tours and other community groups.

We always need actors, singers, dancers, props makers and indeed anything that helps our productions run smoothly. We also need a team of members to help market and publicise our work; in fact, we are looking for a whole breadth of talent to join our existing core members to help us mount our shows. As we plan our forthcoming season, we particularly need someone who is interested in designing or even making sets/ scenery for our forthcoming programme.

So please, if you have done lots of amateur theatre or if you have never been involved with a theatre company before: try us; we guarantee that you will find Tip Top a rewarding group with which to create a new diversion; and you will also make new friends.

After reading this introduction please disregard anyone who tells you "There is no theatre in Chester!" The Forum Studio Theatre is alive and well.
