Selladoor Worldwide was formed in 2009 by David Hutchinson and Phillip Rowntree, whilst students at The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts.
The company's début production, The Secrets Inside, was written by Hutchinson and directed by Richard Adams. The play focuses on the imprisonment of Darren Tunstall, a 23-year-old businessman, who is sentenced to 8 months in HM Prison Perth, Scotland for possessing indecent images of children, and his relationship between the protagonist and his cellmate, Brian, a volatile inmate. It premiered at the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, then ran at the Tolbooth in Stirling.
Selladoor soon moved into producing regional touring theatre, starting with a national tour of Liz Lochhead's adaptation of Dracula in 2010. The following year, it conducted the first British tour of Spring Awakening, which visited Exeter, Stirling, Edinburgh, Manchester, London and Norwich; and produced the centenary tour of William Golding's The Lord of the Flies, across Scotland, England and Wales.
In 2011, Selladoor also started producing an annual Off West End season at the Greenwich Theatre. In November 2013, Selladoor was made an official partner company at the Greenwich Theatre. The 2014 season included Avenue Q and adaptations of the novels Kidnapped and Alice in Wonderland.
Selladoor's head office moved to London in 2009, at Athenley House on Greenwich High Road and subsequently to the Deptford Mission in Deptford. In 2012, they were made a resident producing company at the Beacon Arts Centre in Greenock, which opened in January 2015.
In December 2012, Selladoor made their West End debut with a production of Seussical, written by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, at the Arts Theatre. Recent shows include the London revival of Alan Bennett's The History Boys and Tim Kelly's adaptation of The Hound of the Baskervilles.
In 2016 David Hutchinson and Phillip Rowntree continued to expand the company in size, borders and targets, rebranding the company to Selladoor Worldwide, previously known as Sell A Door Theatre Company . Sell A Door Theatre Company had established themselves as an integral part of the regional theatre landscape in the UK and Ireland, but Hutchinson and Rowntree aspired to expand further afield and therefore to produce and tour theatre not only in the UK, but worldwide  .
Along with UK Tours of Footloose, Flashdance The Musical, Spamalot, and The Crucible, David Hutchinson and Phillip Rowntree, as Selladoor Worldwide produced their first International Tours in 2017, including Jersey Boys and The Producers. Collectively in 2017 Selladoor Worldwide’s productions performed in 8 different countries.
In January 2017 the company expanded further to incorporate a number of subsidiary companies: Selladoor Productions, Selladoor Creation, Selladoor Family, Selladoor Venues, Selladoor Management, Selladoor Enterprise and Selladoor Scotland.
2017 also saw Selladoor Worldwide open two international offices, one in New York and the second in Bangkok . The New York office is located in Midtown Manhattan and managed by Carl Vorwerk, who opened The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show for Selladoor Worldwide at the DR2 Theater in Union Square in September 2017 . David saw great potential in the Bangkok’s developing cultural market, and explained that he wants ‘to be in there first and develop those relationships.” Therefore David opened the Asia Pacific office located in Bangkok in December 2017, which is managed by Peevara Kitchumnongpan
