he Playhouse has been in the business of amateur dramatics since 1949. Transformed into a theatre just after the war by Preston Drama Club with the help of many generous patrons, it has provided local drama and dance groups with modern facilities to produce a variety of shows, plays and performances over the years.

The Playhouse is open to any group of performers or organization who wish to hire its stage, auditorium, conference and rehearsal rooms, or bar for any occasion. For details, see Theatre Hire It is clear that the effort of a great many people is essential in keeping the Playhouse running year after year. All of the people involved are volunteers. And without their hard work, ideas and enthusiasm the show, quite literally, would not go on. In return, these volunteers make great friends, are involved in amazing entertainment and have a great deal of fun.

The Playhouse and the drama groups would like you to come and work with us, and learn anything from props to producing, from set design to sound mixing. There is something for everyone; take a look at our activities page and see how you can get involved, or email
