The Institute is the professional training and accreditation body for these specialist consultants. The name Theatre Consultants is used for convenience but our members have years of experience in all places where a person tells a story, in words, dance or music, to a live audience.
The undertaking you plan is likely to prove a long and complex task from first idea, through creating a brief that conveys your desires to the building design team, through the process of design and on to the construction team who will need to understand the unique complexities of building a performing arts venue. Few of those involved in this process will have much experience in the creation of performing arts venues, the Theatre Consultant members bring the experience of many such projects and can help client and design team, contractor and sub-contractor in developing an understanding and thus a real commitment to the unusual task.

Under Services you will find more detailed information on the work of the Theatre Consultant but here it is worth underlining the essential task, that of helping you to develop your vision into a practical task for an architect and building design team to address and to ensure that the future business is sustainable. The Theatre Consultant will be with you throughout the project helping you to understand the long time scales of the building industry (with its apparent inflexibility once set in motion) and similarly helping the building industry recognise the precision in building which the performer needs. Through greater understanding between all these players in your project greater certainty of outcomes is ensured and the task becomes more rewarding for all concerned.
