Regent Rep

Welcome to Regent Rep, the production company of The Regent Centre.


We have just finished a fantastic run of our very own Rob Walker's new play, Baddies, at the Edinburgh Fringe, and with no rest for the wicked, we launch straight into our Autumn production of J B Priestley's classic play, An Inspector Calls. For more information and details of auditions and read-throughs, please visit the Production page here.

This follows our fantastic performance in Sky Arts HD's Nation's Best Am Dram competition, a nationwide hunt for the very best that the country's community theatre companies have to offer.

Regent Rep are proud to say that we reached the grand final, and in a hugely close-run contest, just lost out to Galloway's Crossmichael Drama Club. We hold our heads high as examples of the very best that local theatre can provide.

If you missed it the first time around, Sky Arts are re-running the show, including all the Extras programmes, throughout June.

With around 90,000 seats sold a year, we know that audiences love coming to watch the events at the Regent Centre and the funds that are raised by Regent Rep productions will help ensure that the theatre will remain available to performers and audiences for many years to come.

We’re lucky to have such a wealth of theatre and musical skills available to us here in Christchurch, and Regent Rep is comprised of members of many other amateur groups in the area who use the Regent Centre, all drawn together to present the best of the area's talent.
