Description:

Think about those books, the ones that you'll always go back to, those...

Think about those books, the ones that you'll always go back to, those moments in life where you think 'that's a bit like that chapter' or 'you're just like that character', those are the stories we love.

We don't just want to leave those books on the shelf though, we take them down, hand them around, share them out and bring them to life.

All over Oxford we find unusual spaces - these stories aren't set in theatres so we don't put them there. Castles, antique mirror tents, college gardens, bookshops and factories... we'll go wherever the stories take us, and so far we've taken over 500,000 people with us.

From the thousands of children who've told classic stories in new ways through our education programme, to our professional actors and directors, you're always most likely to find us lost in a good book.

18 years, 54 shows, half a million audience members aged 5-95...we are Oxford's own Creation Theatre Company.

Best fun, an unusual summer evening out

Interactive theatre done really, really well. Lot of walking and quirky venues all concluded in a picturesque setting. Will definitely go again in the summer.

It was some years ago that we last saw Creation Theatre, but they are still excellent. This show had something for everyone and all ages. Very hard to think of anything to criticise. I don't think we will leave it so long before we are back again.

My friend and I went to see a Christmas pantomime "Snow White" and the experience was amazing! The ground floor is arranged like a cabaret (tables around a stage), the first floor is just sofas and stools. We were sitting on the first floor, and we could see everything (and hear as well). We also could see those magical candles... More

Taking some inspiration from the musical "into the woods" this 7 bird roast of stories offered a journey of wit and adventure. All round great fun and we'll played. Even offering something for those who want novel storage solutions (the stage) and cracking lighting for everyone's barn space. I'd go back. X

Another triumph from Creation. The scriptwriting, the imaginative weaving of a number of tales into one story, the acting, the singing ...... All totally brilliant. The story works on many levels, young children seemed to enjoy it, the teenager with me liked it and there are some subtle (and not so subtle) bits for grown-ups too. Well done Creation!

I urge anyone and everyone to go and see this. High energy, witty, engaging, and also very moving. The cast are a joy, the set and costumes beautiful and the music excellent. This show is full of life and love and laughter and my whole family were entranced, from my 80 year old Father to my 6yo daughter. Thank you... More

What an excellent Christmas show. Atmosphere created by magical set design. Excellent choreography and musical score and last but very much not least the actors - energetic, skilful and hilarious, all of them talented, couldn't choose a star they were all brilliant. Still laughing and enjoying reminiscing. Thank you.

Another fantastic Christmas production from Creation Theatre at the North Wall Arts Centre in Oxford. If you haven't seen it yet, do go - it's imaginative, funny, bonkers and brought to life so many of those old Brothers Grimm stories that I thought I'd forgotten from my childhood, with zest, wit and energy. And full marks for the lighting and... More

Have just seen this magical piece with my wife, mother and two eldest sons (4 and 7). This was one of the theatrical highlights of the year! The girl playing the title role was engaging and exciting to watch - and her relationships with her fellow actors seemed real and unforced. Her clarity of delivery was a real masterclass. She...
