OFS Studio

One of the smaller studio theatres in the city, it was refurbished in the early 1990s under the supervision of producer Cameron Mackintosh. It opened with Moby Dick , the success of which prompted Mackintosh to mount an ill-fated full-fledged West End production. About twenty student shows are performed there per year, with the rest of the weeks being filled by a mixture of professional, semi-pro, and community theatre. Past productions include two Stephen Sondheim works, the revue Putting It Together with Diana Rigg and Assassins , Kiss of the Spider Woman , Entertaining Mr. Sloane , What the Butler Saw , and various Shakespeare plays, including Macbeth and Twelfth Night . In the December of 2008 the premier of A Christmas Carol written by Edward Blagrove and Produced by BMH Productions. Starring Tim Younger, Terresa Hayes and Tobias Morter. The site is being redeveloped for use as a Crisis Skylight Centre. Building works start in June 2010 with the new facilities expected to reopen in the summer of 2011. The last production in the Studio will be Oxford Triptych Theatre's production of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing directed by Simon Tavener
