Intimate, Live, Local & Peterborough Based: Lamphouse Theatre
Lamphouse Theatre is a Peterborough based theatre company committed to making work for Peterborough, touring the surrounding areas and nationally, and run by Artistic Director Tom Fox and Producer Becky Owen-Fisher. Their performances are a playful mischief and they create events accessible to all who attend and participate in them.They tell epic stories in intimate settings, packed with live music, comedy and fun.
“We are all about trying to make each other laugh, and if we’re laughing, we reckon you are too! Music is also super important to us and we have live, original songs in all our shows, often teamed with brilliant technology like loop pedals.” says Becky.
Lamphouse’s multi-disciplined approach includes working closely with an ever-changing ensemble of performers, musicians, artists and makers to create stories collaboratively. They are committed to breaking down barriers with communities who do not often experience theatre. They work with engagement and learning institutions across the country to raise awareness of the power of creativity.
They are resident theatre company at The Undercroft, a space within Serpentine Green Shopping Centre near Hampton, Peterborough. We are kindly supported by Eastern Angles Theatre Company. In 2016, Lamphouse was highly commended in the Edinburgh Fringe Sustainable Practice Award. We are part of Equity’s Professionally Made Professionally Paid campaign and we have committed to paying all our artists a fair rate.
Their base is at Serpentine Green’s The Undercroft, but you’ll find their shows in all sorts of wonderful locations around Peterborough. Their shows are for EVERYONE; adults, kids, families, grandparents, couples, mates, groups, tea-drinkers, beer-drinkers, music-lovers, those that enjoy standup and those that adore theatre – everybody’s welcome!
