A brief history
When Phyl Harris founded Spa Theatre Workshop (known affectionately as Spa Sprouts) in 1981 it was one of the first groups in the area to offer children the opportunity to learn new skills and develop their talents in the performing arts.
For nine years the company successfully staged annual productions in a professional theatre, cast solely from within its own membership. In 1991 the decision was made to perform the hit musical West Side Story. The need to attract more mature performers for this hard-hitting and dramatic show led to the introduction of open auditions and the formation of a Senior Company for performers aged 16 and over.
We then changed our name to 'Spa Theatre Company' to better reflect our junior and a senior company. In 2013 we delivered our last senior performance and went back to focusing on the Junior members in the company.
