Our Story

The ‘Kristian Thomas Company;’ is predominantly a theatre company creating electrifying, innovative & contemporary entertainment. Alongside producing an extensive range of theatre, ‘KTCo’ offers high quality training and tutoring in a variety of classes. Together with the highest level of talent across the East Midlands, ‘KTCo’ is at the forefront of the modern performing arts world and is following the evolving musical theatre movement, staying fresh with the industry as it develops.

The 'Kristian Thomas Company' is the brainchild of Urdang Academy Graduate, Professional Performer and Aspiring Creative, Kristian Cunningham. Leeds College of Music, Professional Musical Director, Trumpet Player & Musician, Tom Bond closely followed and the partnership was formed. Since being officially set up in May 2016, the pair have opened a range of sectors within the company, producing a diverse and thriving performing arts hub.

Initially, the 'KTCo;' began with the 'Elite Company' - a group of professional working and aspiring performers who came together to create theatre and bring it to their local performing arts scene within the East Midlands. With critical acclaim, the 'Elite Company' made the foundations of what was about to become something pretty spectacular. The 'Kristian Thomas Company;' launched two new modern & fresh function bands in April 2017, 'The Valli's & The Motown Belles'. These groups have since entertained audiences and are being booked for weddings, new year functions and more, and still continue to gig across the country. Following their continued achievements, Kristian & Tom decided it was time to explore the 'learning' side of their mission statement and begun classes for all ages and abilities. With the success of their classes and the numbers still growing, the pair completed the 'KTCo;' circle with their Youth Company and will be producing their first musical going into 2018.

The 'Kristian Thomas Company;' is forever growing and strives to produce 'Opportunity to create, to learn and to perform'.
