It follows long-running attempts to change the fortunes of a firm which has seen its shares slide more than 70 per cent in the past five years.

The business, which also works with the likes of the British Film Institute and the Royal Shakespeare Company, is now worth £14.7million.

The group is expected to post revenues of £135million for 2019, up from £76.7million last year.

 Its subsidiary Dewynters is working on Joseph & the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar and Disney hit Frozen, which opens this year.
