Have seen a number of shows put on by Creation Theatre and always enjoyed them immensely. For me the best are the ones performed outside. A Midsummer's Night Dream was wonderful in the park. Great for kids. Really lovely back of house staff too. A great local theatre that should be supported!

Creation always put on a really good and engaging performance in the most innovative environments. Treat yourself, or someone else, and book a ticket. Now.

Always energetic and inspired, we love seeing their interpretations and lively performances which take place in different interesting venues in Oxford both indoors and outdoors.

I have seen Creation do all manner of things - though mainly their Shakespeare - and it is consistently very good, always accessible to seldom-theatre-goers like me, and pops up in the strangest of places. If you see Creation are up to something and you want to do something a little different, spend an evening with them.

This year's Christmas show was superb as always. A real treat. As the show has now finished its run, all I'll say is - if you missed it, make sure you catch whatever they do next year! Creation have just announced that they'll be putting on an outdoor production of Macbeth this summer. Their summer Shakespeare is always fantastic (for... More

WE travelled down to Oxford for a spot of post-Christmas relaxation, to include sight-seeing and a theatre trip. This was the only show we could get tickets for so we opted for it. I am so glad we did ... the imaginative production, the quality of the performances and the ambience of the venue left us spellbound. It was a... More

I would heartily recommend this production to anyone of any age, though you may find it very difficult to get seats as the three in my party had to sit separately. We shared a delicious mango sorbet in the interval though! Excellent actors and I enjoyed the adaptable scenery which could be a Professor's spooky house, a cage or a... More

We took our children and grandchildren to this yesterday. Everyone was entranced from the 5 year old up to the 70 year old. We had a wonderful time, enhanced by crepes and mulled wine in the interval! Creation Theatre have done a fantastic job again. Well done.

We have been coming to see the Creation Theatre Christmas productions for last ten years and have loved every one. Each one is always a slightly different take on a classic, from A Christmas Carol to this year's brilliant The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. My daughter saw her first show when she was 4, and now she is... More

10 of us from 3 generations within the family and ages ranging in age from 7 to 68 went to watch the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe yesterday afternoon and it was just brilliant. Creation Theatre productions never fail to amaze me! Just brilliant. Venue, scenery, acting, etc etc all fabulous. We all got something different from the production... More
