We are a small theatre company, situated in the heart of Padstow, which was originally formed over 60 years ago. 34 years ago we were offered the chance of buying our own premises, a
former Methodist Church Hall, and since then have worked hard to modernise our theatre with central heating, raised seating, new lighting and sound systems, and many other improvements.
We are entirely self funded, and we produce 3 or 4 shows each year, all of which help us to keep the theatre going. We have a dedicated band of performers, wardrobe mistresses (we hardly ever hire costumes!) and set builders.In a typical year we start with a pantomime in January/February, a play (usually a comedy) at Easter, a Summer Show (sometimes a full musical) and sometimes a childrens’ show in the Autumn. Our theatre is called the Little Theatre for a very good reason – we only seat 60 and we are pleased to say that for nearly all our shows, we sell out. We have a very loyal local following, and many visitors to Padstow come back year after year to see our shows.
We have a mailing list and regularly send out details of our forthcoming shows.We also need men! If you live locally and would like to be involved in a thriving group please do let us know – whether you would like to be on stage, or just helping out behind the scenes.Our theatre is situated in Barry’s Lane Padstow, just behind the Methodist Church and you can be sure that a warm welcome awaits you!
Our President is Sue Norfolk
