How we Support Artists

Acting Ensembles

We run community acting ensembles in West Kirby and Old Swan open to absolutely everyone. No experience is required and all ages are welcome! Groups meet weekly with performance opportunities every month.

Our acting ensembles are a chance to connect with other people, develop your performance and writing skills and discover a new hobby.

Classes are ran primarily by Karl Falconer, award-winning director of Shakespeare and community theatre.

We are currently recruiting for our 2023 West Kirby Ensemble.

How we work with Artists

Artists are at the heart of everything we do at PurpleDoor. We know the struggle to create theatre in the North West, and that’s why our space will be free to use, with built in mentorship and development. We aren’t a space for hire and we aren’t just a venue, we’re an incubator for your voice to grow. Contact us to be a part of that.
