History: Chelmsford Theatre Workshop, or CTW as it became known, was founded in 1969 by a group of drama enthusiasts who wanted to form a new amateur theatre company to produce, develop and explore different aspects of theatre and performing arts. Today, the company produces between 6 and 10 productions per season (September - July) and has a reputation for excellence in all areas and artistic integrity, often tackling difficult plays or challenging concepts that other companies may not approach. The CTW season is renowned for variety, often including popular or well known pieces amongst lesser-known or performed pieces as well as original work. CTW has previously taken productions to festivals across the UK including Woking, Brighton and the world-renowned Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The company won six awards in recent years and was proud to be given the Oustanding Contribution award at the 2012 Panic! Awards: In the 1970s, CTW took control of the old Springfield Parish Hall on Springfield Road, Chelmsford and the Old Court Theatre, home of CTW, was born. Today the venue is Chelmsford's third theatre, and is a well-equipped venue which offers a flexible performance area allowing the company to perform in the round or experiment with different staging.

CTW is a registered charity and is self-financing, using income from the the Old Court Theatre facilities, ticket sales and membership subscriptions to fund the company’s productions and running costs of the venue. CTW is managed by an elected management committee who are elected once a year at the Annual General Meeting. They fulfil all the necessary roles associated with running the company and the Old Court Theatre, including budgeting, theatre management and technical management.
CTW is entirely run by volunteers, and the company are always eager to welcome new members.
