Hire our spaces

All the spaces in The Maltings Theatre are available to hire for classes, events, meetings, parties, weddings, funerals, filming, rehearsals and just about anything else you can think of. We are centrally located, adjacent to car parking and fully accessible. To find out more email hire@ovo.org.uk.

Casting

We hold open castings for many of our productions throughout the year. Details are sent to our OVO associate group and we often cast through other theatre industry platforms such as Spotlight, and through agents. If you would like to be considered for membership of our associate group, please send your CV (and Spotlight link if available) to casting@ovo.org.uk. Our current priority is to increase our pool of locally based actors, and to improve the ethnic diversity of our casting pool, so we are particularly interested to hear from actors who will help us to further these objectives.

Bring your show

OVO is a producing theatre company, and we run The Maltings Theatre and The Roman Theatre of Verulamium primarily as producing venues. We do not normally receive touring productions and where we present other people’s work it will normally be in partnership with associate companies with whom we develop a long term relationship, or by invitation or commission. We also provide space for local community companies to perform. If you would like to discuss working in partnership with us, please contact our Artistic Director, Adam Nichols, at adam@ovo.org.uk.

New plays for performance

We do not accept submissions of new plays for performance. Please do not send us unsolicited manuscripts as we do not have the resources to read or review them.
