“Amateur in name only!”
Wokingham Theatre is one of the South’s leading community theatre groups, with hundreds of members and thousands of patrons visiting us each season.
Formed in 1947, the group moved to their current location in 1986, hidden away next to the Cantley House Hotel on the outskirts of the town. WT puts on eight full-length productions a year, as well as several extra smaller productions, including our annual Youth Theatre production. On each performance night, up to sixty people can have been involved in getting the show on its feet. From directing to designing stage sets, from on-stage to behind the scenes and even running the bar in the interval, WT is a thriving amateur group, making it a centre of creativity for young and old, veterans and beginners. It is a local gem for all Wokingham residents to enjoy. And we’re always growing, we love welcoming new members to the theatre, whether it’s on stage, backstage or front of house, drop us a message if you want to know more about joining!
