The Chrysalis Theatre is an impressive building and has become recognised as a prestigious venue, not only in Milton Keynes but also beyond, with the famous names of Warwick Davis, Priscilla Presley, Barry Humphreys, Felix Dennis and Jonathan Dimbleby (BBC Radio 4’s Any Questions?) amongst others all gracing its stage.
We work on various external as well as internal projects and workshops that are for and about adults with learning disabilities and autism alongside other significant events that are held in our theatre.
We are particularly interested in innovative, ‘high-quality’ productions of plays, music and dance that can provide the community with a broad perspective of performance. We are keen to work with organisations that share our values of environmental sustainability, community, empowerment and accessibility.
The Chrysalis is not a commercial venture; rather, it seeks to generate income to meet its running costs and enable its development, upkeep and improvement for all users.
We hire the Chrysalis, and its surrounding buildings as a venue for conferences, large and small training sessions, meetings, lectures and screenings, craft fairs and more.
We have worked with many local and wider organisations, communities and groups including Grace Church, MK Symphonia, Phoenix Rising, MK Arts for Health plus many more.
