What We Do
World-class theatre with, for and by children and young people
Founded in 1977 and based in Rochdale, M6 Theatre Company is acknowledged as one of Britain’s leading theatre companies specialising in creating and delivering dynamic, quality and relevant work for, with and by children and young people. We create original theatre productions that:
- Ignite the imagination
- Nurture the heart
- Challenge the mind
M6’s highly acclaimed productions tour nationally and internationally to theatre venues and festivals, and locally to schools and community settings. The company’s rich programme includes inspiring and highly visual shows for young audiences and compelling short single voice plays for older audiences.
Our year-round participatory programme provides opportunities for young people from diverse backgrounds to participate in high quality and accessible theatre-arts activities. These take place at M6 Studio Theatre as well as schools and community settings within Rochdale Borough.
M6 Theatre works in partnership with: Rochdale Borough Culture Network, Rochdale’s Children, Young People and Families Partnership and Rochdale Local Education Partnership (LCEP)
Our memberships and affiliations include: Curious Minds, Earlyarts, Independent Theatre Council, Theatre for Young Audiences, Actions for Childrens’ Arts and National Campaign for the Arts.
