Wolverhampton Grand Theatre

Wolverhampton Grand Theatre
Unlike Repertory Theatres, venues like the Grand Theatre do not produce their own shows but stage the productions of touring companies. These companies usually perform at the Grand Theatre (and other receiving venues throughout the country) for a specific run (eg one, two or three week runs and sometimes even for a 4 to 10 week season). The theatre's Chief Executive contacts production companies to book shows to be staged at the Grand Theatre.  As the Grand is not a producing venue, it does not have a department for wardrobe, make-up, props, scenery, or wigs. Neither does it have its own team of directors, writers, performers etc. Everything required to stage the shows is brought to the theatre by the visiting company. The visiting company's staff then work with the Grand Theatre's staff to prepare the show for performance and to operate it throughout its run.
