Jenny Wren Productions is a Gloucestershire-based theatre company, formed in 2004. In the summer we can be found performing under the stars at open-air venues around the county, including Berkeley Castle, Cowley Manor and Highnam Court near Gloucester. The autumn usually takes us on another tour of the county and sometimes further afield, often to village halls and smaller theatres. We have strong links with the Cheltenham Everyman Theatre and also perform there regularly in the Studio Theatre. We tour schools with Theatre in Education projects such as Dr Korczak's Example, about the plight of Jewish orphans during World War II, and Paved with Gold, about children working on the streets in Victorian London.
The company comprises a pool of around 30 actors, musicians, designers, stage managers, producer and director. Many of our projects have been funded by Arts Council England and with others we have raised money for charities including the Pied Piper Appeal at Gloucester Hospital and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. And whilst doing all of this, we have a lot of fun!
It is with heavy hearts that we (unsurprisingly) have had to postpone the upcoming Bletchley Girls tour in 2020 - but it will go ahead in 2021.
As for A Midsummer Night's Dream - keep your fingers crossed for us! Time will tell...
Sending you all love and good wishes from the Wrens - stay well :)
