The Citizens Theatre is one of the most important and accessible cultural institutions in Scotland.
The Citizens Theatre is a very special place. We are the second oldest and most complete working Victorian theatre in the UK. Everything happens on site at our Gorbals home – shows are produced, sets and costumes are created in our workshops, while our prop store provides an incredible range of props from every era.
Since 1943 we have created work built on the same 3 beliefs:
• GREAT THEATRE ENRICHES LIVES
• DRAMA ENABLES SOCIAL CHANGE
• EVERYONE CAN PLAY A PART
We are extremely proud of our rich history and some of the UK’s most distinguished actors began their careers on our stage, including Gary Oldman, Stanley Baxter, David Hayman, Pierce Brosnan, Ciarán Hinds, Helen Baxendale and many more…
In addition to the income we generate from ticket sales and receive in grants from our core funders, Glasgow City Council and Creative Scotland; we raise substantial sums from the private sector and from you, our supporters. We need to raise £500,000 a year to continue to create work of the highest quality and to reinvest in the communities around us through our education and outreach projects.
Whoever you are and whatever you can give we make a promise to each supporter:
