Performing quality professional theatre in sunny swanage since 2017


professional Theatre Productions and Shows in the UK in 2021

Return to the theatre with Hordern Ciani. For 2021, we are presenting two weeks of a family musical show in August, and a return in September for two further plays.

As we get back to work, we’d like to give huge thanks to all our audience members for your continued support during a difficult time for the industry.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more information about what we’re offering this year.


Previous Productions

Our company aims to produce a varied programme that entertains all the family and caters to many different tastes. Regular rep audience members will remember our previous productions, including:

  • Yes, Prime Minister
  • The Secret Garden
  • The 39 Steps
  • The Railway Children
  • The Game’s Afoot
  • Wait Until Dark

Support from Arts Council England

As a very welcome recognition of the company’s work, last year Arts Council England awarded a project grant to Swanage Rep 2020. This was extremely welcome financial input that has been deferred to this year to enable the season to go ahead in what would otherwise be a risky climate.

2021 Show Dates

We are running three shows in 2021, with The Princess And The Pauper running from 17th – 28th August and further shows running from 7th – 11th September and 14th – 18th September.

Performance times and dates for September will be announced soon.


Hordern Ciani will also be running several two-hour workshops for kids, incorporating acting, singing, dancing, and sign song skills. These workshops will run from 17th – 28th August.


Passionate about Theatre

As theatres reopen, we look forward to providing top quality shows for you once again
