GREENWICH Theatre has announced a formal partnership with flourishing theatre company.

Sell A Door Theatre Company, based in Athelney House in Greenwich High Road, has linked up with the theatre which already has a reputation for supporting emerging companies.

Sell A Door, which was originally formed by a small group of artists from the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, now has four full-time and three part-time members.

The Theatre and Sell A Door’s three collaborative productions this year include Robert Louis Stevenson’s Kidnapped in April, and a major revival of the popular West End show Avenue Q at the end of April into May and Alice in Wonderland alongside community performers at the end of May into June.

Sell A Door’s artistic director David Hutchinson said: “We started in 2008 and came down here because Greenwich had a really good reputation and in 2011 we did the first of 10 productions at the theatre with A Taste of Honey.

“We also work with local groups and schools, and the whole thing is really exciting. It would not have happened without Greenwich Theatre.

“They’ve helped us not only with our work there but also with our wider ambitions.”#
