Orbis Productions create inclusive, accessible and interactive theatrical experiences in response to site-specific inspiring spaces.
‘So convincing the audience forget they are experiencing theatre, fostering new meaningful connections and memories they take home forever.’
Orbis Productions (fomerly Gaslight Productions) was formed in 2017 and burst onto the immersive theatre scene to create original elegant total theatre experiences that combine exciting and political narratives through the delivery of high quality music, dance and performance. Each participant for our evenings are invited to ‘bathe in the glory of another time and place’ with no fourth wall to be seen on site.
Orbis Productions are key innovators in restoring our ‘faith in humanity through the platform of theatre.’ Our key objectives are for our audiences to ‘feel like they matter’ and to project constant new stories into the space in order to share and witness beautiful, funny, moving, authentic and thought-provoking experiences.
Orbis Productions combine theatre, dance, music directors and creative consultants to create spaces for everyone’s voice to be heard.

THE IMPOSTER – A One Woman Show
Through the lens of a semi-autobiographical journey we will bust open the myth of the “Imposter Syndrome” in all that is creative.
That sneaky little part of ourselves that almost all of us have, but that we don’t much like to talk about it and rarely admit to…
You gotta think, Think! ‘Saturday Night Fever mashed up with ‘Thank God It’s Friday’ & ‘Studio 54’ smeared with lashings of Angel Delight and Pineapple & Cheese on sticks.
Join Diana ‘Floss’, Olivia ‘Neutron Bomb’ and Gloria ‘Flavour’ for an action packed few hours of the best disco where the dance floor will get so hot it will be one great ‘Cheesy’ Fondue. Expect dance offs, soul trains and lollipop limbo’s, The Generation Game, Blankety Blanks and Mr & Mrs where there are prizes of your favourite 70’s instant food to keep your energy levels tip top as you embrace your Disco Diva and show us ‘How Deep is Your Love.’

Brighton Fringe Festival
Rialto Theatre, Brighton
“Easily the best event I’ve ever seen at the festival! Awesome venue and amazing mix of music and theatre with a talented cast! If you see one thing at the festival see this!” Samantha Clarke
“First 1920’s event I’ve been to and all i can say is it’s been done to perfection. Actresses 5 * bar tenders, 5 *, professionalism 5 * keep an eye out as these guys are good!! Looking forward to the next event !!” Amanda Dargie
“We had an absolute ball at Mr Frank’s! Fantastic atmosphere – and so great to combine space and opportunity to dance with a little theatrical drama. For those who love swing dancing – definitely for you. For complete novices who just want to dress up, enjoy the scene and have a go – just as good, really welcoming and fun. Some free drinks included, and chauffeured back to the Warren by midnight. Highly recommend!” Alison Muir
“Loved it. Lots of fun, really well thought out, lots of care taken in the details of the story. Once at the secret location the atmosphere was fab and all the cast very friendly and welcoming. Amazing music and performers.” Emma Wright
“Cracking night. Clearly lots of planning went into it. Great atmosphere, drinks and music. Everyone there loved it. Highly recommended.” Tom Hyslop
“Had a great night, would recommend attending and to be sure to try the cocktails! Lots of thought has gone in to the planning, and it came together great… Fancy stepping back in time, then definately give it a whirl… Brilliant music and atmosphere!!” Leigh Twomey
“Great atmosphere, fantastic live music with some entertaining theatre as well. Fantastic location. Loved getting dressed up 1920s style and being swept away from the Warren with a whole of group of people being entertained throughout with plenty of drink (which was unbelievably cheap) before being brought back. I had never danced the Charleston before but thoroughly enjoyed learning some new moves on the dance floor. Definitely would recommend. Unlike any fringe event I’d been to before.” Mary Cutler Fish
“Well what a glorious array of talent and ingenuity.. combining performance and atmosphere to deliver a unique and immersive experience .. so hard to find something different and this show ticked all the boxes .. surprises and fun times .. not to be missed .. Brighton best kept non secret secret ..” Annie Green
