Hothouse Theatre's
20th Season

 Hothouse Theatre was formed in 1998 by a group of keen thespians eager to carry on some of the work of the Next Stage project once the County Council were no longer able to fund it.

The idea was to give people a chance to have a go at doing all sorts of theatre roles needed to put on small scale, pub theatre projects.

Over the years we have put on loads of different productions with the emphasis on doing new and different things as well as giving people a chance to act, direct and write for the stage.

Hothouse has also branched out into film.

 Over the last 10 years we have worked a lot with young people using film production to help increase confidence, self esteem and aspirations.

This has culminated in 2 film festivals run by the young people and the creation of Oh My Nottz, an online magazine containing filmed and written reports, slideshow and audio pieces created by young people in Nottinghamshire.

We will be celebrating our 20th season with 3 productions for the stage, our 3rd film festival and lots more stuff on Oh My Nottz.
