Selladoor Worldwide was founded in 2009 by CEO David Hutchinson and CFO Phillip Rowntree, developing rapidly into an integral player of the UK and Ireland’s regional theatre landscape. The company has since established itself as one of the leading producers of mid- and large-scale touring theatre, with a well-established network of international offices and partners.

From the very outset, Selladoor Worldwide’s aim has been to make accessible work for our audiences, and their experience is at the heart of the company’s artistic planning. Our objective is to continue to encourage the next generation of theatregoers, primarily young adult audiences and first-time attendees. Our education programmes and online presence endeavour to provide the most comprehensive possible experience of our productions. Our origins lie in re-imagined classics and new commissions, which we continue to champion to this day. We are proud to be able to create a varied and distinctive programme; large-scale commercial touring is complimented by the company’s not-for-profit roots, and ongoing investment and development of new work. As a company operating across a range of scales we continue to deliver and invest in our regional and international patron base, as well as our product.

2019 saw the return of Flashdance The Musical with a tour in South Korea, the London premiere of William Finn and James Lapine’s Falsettos at The Other Palace, and UK tours of Amelie and Little Miss Sunshine. Both Fame and Madagascar The Musical continued their popular UK tours, with the former playing in the West End at the Peacock Theatre, and the latter touring extensively in international markets throughout 2020. The first West End production of Dolly Parton’s 9 to 5 The Musical continues at the Savoy Theatre, as well as undertaking a second UK tour in May. After the two successful UK tours of Elmer The Patchwork Elephant Show and Mr. Men & Little Miss On Stage, 2020 sees further international dates for our Selladoor Family productions. Selladoor are also thrilled to have announced the UK premiere of Bring It On The Musical, as well as the return of 80s cult classic favourite- Footloose The Musical, which will both embark on UK tours this year. Our international tour of We Will Rock You also launches this year in South Africa before continuing to the Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong, Israel and beyond. Selladoor are thrilled with the variety of work in production, and remain committed to creating daring, diverse and dynamic productions that are accessible to all.

In 2019 Selladoor Creation announced a partnership with Hasbro to begin developing Monopoly: Lifesized Edition, an immersive theatrical experience due to open in London later this year. 2019 also brought another exciting venture to the Selladoor Worldwide group, with the announcement of Selladoor Venues. Selladoor Venues are the current operators for the Queen’s Theatre, Barnstaple; The Landmark, Ilfracombe; and Peterborough New Theatre. Selladoor Worldwide now have offices in Madrid, Bangkok, New York and Shanghai in addition to our headquarters in London, as we continue to produce and tour theatre worldwide.
