Specialising in Theatrical Entertainment

Welcome to Red Entertainment.
We are a theatrical production company, creating work in-house for the theatre market.

Producer Matt Brinkler leads a talented team of production and creative staff in the creation of new and exciting commercial works that bring new audiences to their local theatres.

The company’s primary mission is to reach new audiences previously unconnected with their local theatres and bring them in to enjoy excellent entertainment equal to that of a higher ticket price elsewhere at Stadiums or in the West End. This goal benefits our partner theatres in the building of their databases and diversity of their audiences, in turn giving a wider reach to returning productions from RED as well as other visiting companies.

“The colour RED is associated with love, power, nobility and attention to detail.”

RED Entertainment proudly has it’s own programming, marketing and social media staff, general management and production team. We work closely with national PR teams for some of our top touring shows.

Our creatives come from a wide variety of exciting backgrounds, from dancing with the stars and West End theatrical royalty to designers of stadium tours for the World’s number 1 artistes. We are immensely proud to have such huge talent building our productions, enabling us to deliver exemplary quality around the UK and beyond.

RED Entertainment products are high end and commercial. From our music shows to our musicals, they are commercial-brand related with a great amount of audience appeal.
Types of productions RED Entertainment produce are story telling, children’s theatre, music productions, musicals, plays, pantomime and comedy.

We’re painting the town RED. Come and join us.

Team RED

Matt Brinkler – Executive Producer

Matt has been leading the RED team since 2012 when the company was previously known as MBM.

The only role that could fulfil his ambition, business mindset and creativity was the Producer. Matt’s goal with RED is to grow the company alongside the theatres, mutually benefiting all parties which in turn produces a better working environment on the UK Touring circuit.

Then in 2009 he went into producing and writing shows himself. After 10 years and with a number of successful tours under his belt, Mike is now asked to work with other producers to bring his knowledge and expertise to their productions. When not working, he can usually be found, being attacked by his 4 year old son Henry! Or being asked to tackle some form of house hold DIY that his wife Kelly has decided should be done. …. (Failing that, he will be hiding in his man cave at the bottom of the garden)
