The Talisman Theatre Company
The Talisman Theatre is a member theatre of the Little Theatre Guild and is justly proud of the highest standards in all departments. We aim to stage nine main house productions every year, in addition to occasional small-scale productions in our Studio. Additionally, we are also Kenilworth's only mainstream cinema with our 14 foot auditiorium screen with full surround sound. We also have a thriving Youth Theatre Group which stages productions in the main house. Fund-raising one-off shows are also produced by other groups, whenever they can be squeezed in. The Company was founded in 1942. In 1969 we moved from what is now Talisman Square to our present theatre in Barrow Road, which seats 156 people, as well as accommodating a bar/foyer with regular art exhibitions, and a studio for rehearsal and small-scale productions. We are a charitable incorporated organisation (CIO), and are completely run by volunteers. We receive no grants or sponsorship, and all income is generated from ticket sales, membership and donations. The company includes and welcomes actors, designers, backstage and front of house assisitants.
