AliCaT Theatre Company

AliCaT is an established and exciting performance based theatre company. The company was set up in 2009 and since then has enjoyed overwhelming success and popularity. AliCaT focuses on building theatre skills such as acting, voice, movement and dance but also on important personal attributes such as confidence and social skills. The sessions involve a variety of fun and stimulating games, drama activities, performance projects and RYE (Research on Yoga in Education). The classes run in term time only and work towards an annual performance that can be enjoyed by friends and family.



AliCaT is based in North Somerset at the Backwell Playhouse, both rehearsals and performances take place here. The Playhouse is signposted from the main road and there is ample parking. The Playhouse benefits from extensive lighting and sound equipment, a large and accessible stage area and changing rooms. The Playhouse is the perfect backdrop for the AliCaT sessions as it not only provides a safe and friendly environment it also promotes a real theatre experience which is integral to the vision of the company.



AliCaT is currently expanding and adding groups to run alongside the established ones. The following groups will be available.
