2013 Back to

The lead roles were performed with both understanding and dynamism, the music was superb, the sets magical and it was fun to see something that has, save for a few, very publicised venues, dropped from popular culture, brought scintillatingly back to life.

The quality of music from Zip Rockschool is testimony to Zip's high standards.

The offerings of Wulfrunians great and small proves Zip is worth all the grants and funding it needs and sometimes gets.

Zip's ethos is towards community work and they are totally inclusive. Zip takes kids, older folk, whoever, from whatever background, brings out and hones their gifts.

"If a zip fastener is there to hold things together, then this Theatre is amazingly well named."

The Wolverhampton Mystery Cycle

Being part of the Community


"Over two years sweat and slog came to glorious fruition in Zip Theatre's Mystery Cycle production....and it was worth the wait. To have managed to combine the talents of so many people of differing ages, abilities, racial groups and motivations was stunning, to say the least.
