Four actors (Laura, Serena, Joel and Richard) form the core of the Saltmine Theatre Company - they are occasionally supplemented by freelance actors hired for specific productions.

The four core members generate the majority of their material themselves through writing and devising. All of the actors are deeply committed to the Christian message and this infuses their work.

The theatre group seek to put their message across with humour and energy.

'33 Not Out!'

Their new show ‘33 Not Out!’ is a comedy cabaret style performance which tells the story of the life of Jesus, from his miraculous birth to his resurrection.

It's a fast moving (and very funny!) story that focuses on the lesser known elements and characters of the gospel, from the Rich Dude, to Joseph of Arimathea’s annoyed wife!

The audience also witness the fastest ever service of nine lessons and carols (it takes about seven and a half minutes and includes talking sheep!). Also meet the wine waitresses at a restaurant who are surprised by the seemingly endless supply of wine, and the bamboozled bureaucrat struggling to cope with the idea of virgin birth!

‘33 Not Out!’ is a richly rewarding and varied show at turns hilarious, musical and moving.

STC acting since 1985

Saltmine Theatre Company have been in existence since 1985 and since that time have gone from performing the odd comedy sketch in church services to full-length plays at such prestigious venues as the Swan Theatre, Stratford, as part of the RSC’s visitor’s season.

They also perform in schools and prisons and are in the process of writing an anti-drugs play based on the life of Leah Betts, in collaboration with the Betts family.

When and where

Saltmine Theatre Company are based in Dudley, they perform in Birmingham, the West Midlands and nationally.
