Imaginarium is a theatre and community arts organisation based in Prescot in Knowsley led by Artistic Director Gaynor La Rocca/CEO and a dynamic team of creative professionals. We are a Royal Shakespeare Company Open Stages partner, and an Associate Company of the Shakespeare North Playhouse, and we have been actively bringing Shakespeare to the people of Prescot, Knowsley, and across Liverpool City Region since 2014. 


Our annual outdoor touring productions, which take spectacular performances of Shakespeare's plays, exciting new works, and adaptations of literary classics to the parks and gardens of Merseyside and The RSC Dell are critically acclaimed. Our Community Ensemble stage an annual production on the main stage of the Shakespeare North Playhouse, and our Young Shakespeare and Young Actors Companies and our 3 FREE Youth Theatres for (7-21 years) stage regular work in SNP Studio and Performance Garden.

As well astounding audiences and press, the shows create the opportunity for anyone to get involved as actors, musicians, makers and volunteers to express themselves creatively and join our supportive, creative community of friends and artists. 

​In addition to the large touring shows, we deliver an extensive programme of community and youth engagement and educational programmes. We are also a registered Arts Awards Centre delivering Arts Awards from Discover to Gold for children and young people aged 5 -25 years.
