Orange Moon Theatre was born under a harvest moon in the most spectacular of theatrical settings; The Minack, Cornwall. Between dashes up and down the stone steps, in the thick of the cornish mist each night, a group of like-minded creatives were inspired to join and form one company. Their mission: to breathe new life into classic but forgotten stories through silly, fun theatre that makes life better; that spreads love; and that makes you want to believe in magic again... Inspired by the moon and led by women, this young theatre company balances the beautiful with the comic to unearth lost stories that the traditional canon has forgotten…
A company founded on family and fun, we work collaboratively toward all projects. Our skills are multi-faceted and cross many disciplines. Our creatives are skilled in dance, movement, film and production; we are academics, trained actors, musicians, yogis, teachers, tecchies, film makers and pole dancers. We love Kneehigh. We love stories. We love wine.We value difference and welcome everyone.With roots in Amateur Theatre, we pride ourselves in making theatre because we love it. Simple as that. We are Orange Moon.
