Discovering, developing and reimagining musical theatre is at the heart of The Other Palace.
We’re passionate about theatre and want our spaces to encourage and nurture the next generation of theatre-makers and musicals. Alongside our programme of fully produced work we will be opening the doors to the development process with a range of initiatives, from connecting theatre-makers to staging workshop performances.

All That Scratch is perfect for fans of musical theatre alike. Plus, regional audiences and artists can get involved with the release of the All That Scratch podcast: the best in new musical theatre writing, recorded live at The Other Palace, directly to your device.
