“Fat Rascal Theatre are very quickly establishing themselves as a champion of British Comedy Musicals”
DIVA Magazine

Fat Rascal Theatre was set up by a group of East 15 graduates in 2016, and we’ve been growing our rascal family ever since. We have quickly established ourselves as a home for new musical theatre, having produced 7 brand-new musicals and counting. We are a company run by women; we challenge the constraints of being a female within the industry, and discuss social and political issues through an accessible and appealing format to engage a wider audience. We are supported by Birmingham Hippodrome, Underbelly, Theatre Deli and the English Touring Theatre.

We have so far won the Otherplace/Balkan Award at Brighton Fringe, VAULT festival’s Festival Spirit Award, an Eddies Award, Fairy Powered Productions’ Best New Writing Award and the Stella Wilkie Award from the King’s Head Theatre, alongside garnering two Edinburgh Fringe Sellout Laurels. We were nominated for the Les Enfants Terribles Award in both 2016 and 2017 and received an Off West End Award nomination for our production of Beauty and the Beast: A Musical Parody.

We want to create theatre which people are going to want to see for fun, and we want them to leave having had a great time, but also feeling ready to take on the world. We believe that theatre should always aim to inspire, educate or liberate and should be available to everybody.
