Colla Voce is an award-winning theatre company, based in Sheffield and specialising in new musical theatre and comedy. With work featuring on the BBC and in New York, being selected for the artist development scheme at the Lowry, and recording a soundtrack that has amassed tens of thousands of streams on Spotify, Colla Voce are building a reputation for dark and witty British musicals with strong female stories at their centre.
Our first original piece, Buried, opened to a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe, before transferring to Pleasance London, The Curve Leicester, and being selected for international musical theatre festivals in the Czech Republic and New York, gaining numerous five star reviews and awards to date.
Following on from this success, a second collaboration with writers Tom Williams and Cordelia O’Driscoll resulted in You And I: A New Musical, a touching comedy about love, loss and a robot called Robert. With previous runs at the Edinburgh Fringe (Underbelly) and York Theatre Royal, the show will transfer to The Other Palace, The Lowry, and Theatre Delicatessen, Sheffield in 2020.
Recently, Colla Voce have expanded into stand-up comedy, working closely with emerging comic Karam Deo, producing his first Edinburgh Fringe show Table For One; a foray into the dating struggles of a gay Punjabi man.
