I am extremely pleased to announce that we are back on the road.  It has been a tough couple of years for everyone, but theatre is extremely important to everyone, not just for entertainment but from the perspective of our shows, education, growth of character and confidence and much more.  We are taking precautions to safeguard both our actors and audience with Covid measures which schools can request when booking.

Please note that during our time away our email was hacked and we have had to remove the admin@imagemusicaltheatre.co.uk address.  All emails should now be addressed to ian@imagemusicaltheatre.co.uk

A Note from our Director

Our Shows


Kenneth Grahame’s much loved classic is given the ‘Image Musical Theatre’ treatment.  


A dragon is discovered living in the hills and befriended by a young boy, but aren’t dragons meant to be fierce fire-breathing beasts?  What will become of the pair?

Arthurian legends have excited children for centuries and this adaptation is no exception. The mystical ‘Sword in the Stone’ follows the life of Arthur, a young squire destined to be king, and the magical wizard Merlin. Arthur and Merlin embark together on
many adventures and lessons and whilst at a tournament, Arthur successfully pulls a sword from a stone, unwittingly fulfilling the sword’s prophecy, making him king of England.

Over the past 32 year, Image Musical Theatre have produced a phenomenal back catalogue of shows.  View our previous clips, Images and sound bites to relive the magic that is Image Musical Theatre 


The History of Image


Image Theatre Company was set up in the spring of 1988 by Brian Thresh to provide theatre venues and schools in the West London boroughs and neighbouring counties with high quality touring productions.  The production emphasis is on the adaptation of popular stories, the classics, and the great plays of the English language. In 1993 Robert Hyman joined the company as composer / lyricist and as the relationship between director and composer developed it became evident that a change of company title was appropriate and Image Musical Theatre was incorporated in 1995.  To date, Image Musical Theatre has written and produced eighteen new family participation musicals.

In the spring of 2003 and 2004 respectively, Ian McCracken and Susan McKenna joined the company as actors.  They both returned, working together for the first time, in 2005 for the autumn tour of Pinocchio.  Since then their affiliation with Image has grown and they have been involved in various aspects of the company, including administration, directing and production managing.  Now husband and wife, they were both delighted to take over the running of the company and on 1st September 2013 Ian became the new Artistic Director.
