THEATRE & CABARET
COMPLETE ENTERTAINMENT PROVISION
Talbot Productions have been involved as producers or co-producers on many theatrical productions in the West End (Double Double, Some Kind of Hero, Buddy, Jolson, The Fifteen Streets), on national tours and internationally (most recently co-producers on La Cage Aux Folles in the US). Our comedy-focused subsidiary has also taken ten shows to the Edinburgh Festival, three of which subsequently transferred to London and national tours. We have produced everything from one man shows to straight drama, musicals and variety shows.
Our chairman has spent his life in the theatre. After initially training as an actor, he was a member of the National Theatre company for five years before moving into directing and producing in 1986. He is also the chairman of the Royal Theatrical Fund which brings together a board of acting, producing and directing luminaries as trustees in support of former theatrical professionals in need.
We have staged musical acts as diverse as Elton John, Crowded House, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the West End cast of Buddy, Le Clique, Limbo, Bond, the Marching Band of the Royal Marines, Fires of Anatolia & Oompah Brass. We have worked with a who’s who of British and international comedians and presenters including Dara O’Briain, Jack Dee, Ricky Gervais, Jimmy Carr, Adam Hills, Miles Jupp, Jo Brand, Rory Bremner, Jonathan Ross, Jeremy Paxman & Graham Norton, as well as a variety of cabaret, magic and specialist acts.
We possess detailed technical expertise in-house across sound, lighting, video, graphics and staging. We can produce a show anywhere in the world to the highest West End theatre standards. We can source, book and stage any act required for any kind of show. We have experience in executing and delivering productions in a wide variety of venues: theatres, opera houses, museums, casinos, hotels, palaces, clubs, a medieval shipyard, an industrial gas holder and an aircraft carrier.
