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 one artistes. We are immensely proud to have such huge talent building our productions, enabling us to deliver exemplary quality around the UK and beyond.

“Often imitated, never duplicated”

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

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


“Red Entertainment don’t serve up tribute bands, they create theatrical productions specifically for theatre and of a quality that venues can trust.”

"I loved the show – it’s so energetic and fun. I also like the fact that the girls in the show aren’t trying to look like Little Mix – it’s more of a celebration of the music. I also loved the fact that there was a really diverse line-up of girls in the cast and they are not all model thin, I think this is a great message for young girls! I can't wait to come back again with my daughter!
