Production Archive

Leeds Arts Centre has been producing four or five plays a year at the Carriageworks, and before that at the Leeds Civic Theatre, since 1945.

This area of the site contains details of some of those productions, along with links to photographs when available. Over the decades, hundreds of costumes have been specially designed and made by the Wardrobe team for our productions, and some of those designs are also linked below.

Poster designs from past Leeds Arts Centre productions can be found on Picasa. More details of some past productions, together with production photographs and costume designs, can be found in the Designs and Writing sections of Malcolm’s Fantasy World.

For details of current productions, please see our production list.
