About The Shaftesbury Theatre
The Shaftesbury Theatre is located on the junction between Shaftesbury Avenue and High Holborn in the London Borough of Camden. Designed by Bertie Crewe, it opened in December 1911 and was considered a flamboyant masterpiece from the life-size groups of statuary representing Comedy, Tragedy, Poetry and Music that still adorn the tops of the boxes, to its impressive Edwardian façade. The Shaftesbury Theatre has staged many notable productions in its 110 year history, and has recently embarked on an ambitious programme to extend and enhance its public spaces and amenities.
The Shaftesbury Theatre is owned by DLT Entertainment Ltd., internationally recognised as a leading independent company engaged in virtually every aspect of the marketing, production and distribution of video programming. DLT took a minority share in the Shaftesbury Theatre in 1986 and now owns 100% - making DLT London's longest tenured theatre owner. In addition to producing its own theatre shows, DLT has general managed third party productions. Through its TV production office in London, DLT is most known for its long-running sitcoms My Family and As Time Goes By and its most recent production of Monster Court which is currently airing on CBBC. DLT has recently expanded into talent representation with investments in various talent agencies.
