The Coliseum Studio was a supportive, welcoming and playful creative environment to take your work to the next level. The Studio programme ran alongside that of the Main Stage with a mix of new writing, visiting companies, rehearsed readings, bespoke and in-house productions.

Oldham Coliseum Theatre Studio Artist Development Programme

Oldham Coliseum Theatre Studio was an intimate 50 seat space that was available to artists at different stages of their careers.


We wanted to support artists’ work and development and to build mutually beneficial working relationships. 




Spare Room

Although our Studio was at a premium – our space also doubled as our rehearsal room – we offered the space, when available, to artists and companies for R&D and rehearsal at no cost. 


This was on a first come, first served basis and, occasionally, subject to organisational capacity, we offered those companies who had been part of Spare Room the opportunity of a rehearsed reading so their work was performed in front of a supportive audience.
