Welcome to
Wokingham Theatre

Wokingham Theatre is a thriving community theatre, presenting eight major productions a year, alongside Youth Theatre productions, short runs of experimental productions, evenings of new writing, and a wide range of theatrical skills training and workshops, all in our 160+ seat home at Cantley Park in Wokingham.

Founded in 1947, WT is a registered charity and our purpose has always been to promote the enjoyment of theatre in and around Wokingham. The theatre is staffed and managed entirely by volunteers who give their time and skills to support all aspects of our operation, and our membership is made up from a wide array of experiences and backgrounds. We have a wide-reaching diversity and inclusion policy, and we’re always keen to hear from any potential new members thinking about joining us.

We hope to welcome you to Wokingham Theatre very soon!

Get Involved At WT

As a community theatre grouped staffed, managed, and run by volunteers, there’s never a shortage of opportunities to get involved at WT, whether that’s on-stage, backstage, or front of house.

Wokingham Theatre wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for our brilliant members, and membership is open to everyone. Whether you’re a seasoned amateur actor looking to flex some creative muscle, or you’re looking for a chance to meet new friends and get involved with the arts, there’s something for everyone.

Unlike many other societies, there are no show fees to pay, and once you’ve joined, you can get involved with as much or as little as you’d like to at WT.

With regular social events and a packed calendar of productions, as well as membership extras such as workshops, play reading groups, and a writing group, there’s plenty to enjoy at WT, and you also get a direct say over how WT is run at our annual AGM.
