In the year 2000, in a theatre dressing room in Greenwich, a small company was formed. It was dressing room 5.
Now, two decades years later, Dressing Room 5 (or dr5 as we are known) are one of the most experienced, respected and straight-talking theatre marketing companies in the country. We may have outgrown our fledgeling roots but our ethos is still the same; we genuinely love what we do and the shows we work on - which is why we still do this.
At Dressing Room 5 we look after the marketing, strategy, promotions and advertising for a wide range variety of theatre shows; everything from hit musicals to record-breaking dramas, Olivier award-winning comedies to operas, smash-hit children's shows to international dance spectacles, both in the West End and throughout the UK and Ireland.
We are not like any other theatre marketing agency.
Firstly, we don’t consider ourselves as one, and that’s what we and our clients love. We don’t have 20 staff and multiple interns faffing around; we don’t have self-promoting personal blogs and we won’t palm you off on very eager but junior members of staff.
What you do get is the 30 years of experience of two people, a personal touch and a sense of humour.
Dressing Room 5 is essentially Shereden and Mark, two highly-experienced people with over 300 shows between us of various shapes, sizes and budgets; everything from Peppa Pig to Peter Andre, from The Wiggles to Wicked, from the intimate Hope Mill Theatre to the massive Wembley Arena. We have done and continue to do them all.
We have always let our results, loyal producers, audiences and longevity in a tough industry do the talking, rather than our websites or words, which is why we are still going strong.
In essence, we really are two normal people, who have achieved extraordinary results over many years.
We definitely swear too much, we probably care too much, but we do sell a load of tickets every week. So, if you are looking for two people who know what they’re doing and not piles of poise or plastic smiles – we’d love you to get in touch. Just don’t ever call us boutique. Or on the weekends please.
