Our 2021/2022 Season

We’re thrilled to introduce you to our 2021/2022 season! After a tricky 18 months, the whole team at WT are incredibly excited at the prospect of reopening, first for a season extra in July, September in the Rain, and then a full season beginning in September 2021. Artistic Director, David Stacey, writes: Understandably, the recent seasons have been really difficult to plan and deliver. This coming season will be my third attempt! Licence limitations and the pandemic have made planning a tough experience for all involved, so I want to thank the Board for their support and everyone for t

Get Involved: Front of House Volunteers

Many of our patrons don’t realise that whilst the cast and crew of a show are volunteers, so are our whole front of house team! Whether behind the bar, selling programmes, or scanning tickets, everyone involved in the team is giving up their time to help out at WT. It’s also a great way for our members to socialise, as well as meet new people, too! If you’ve not done it before, you’ll receive full training from our team, and for those that have volunteered for us before, we’ve instituted a couple of changes while the theatre has been closed to make life that bit

Fundraise for WT through the Wokingham Walk

On Sunday 23rd May, the 6th ‘Wokingham Walk’ will be taking place – all in aid of raising money for local charities. With 5, 10, and 15 mile walks available, it’s a great way to see the local area, get active, and even socialise, all while making a difference. What’s more, as a registered charity, you can help fundraise for Wokingham Theatre, too. Organised by our friends at the Wokingham Lions Club, you can help directly support WT as we reopen after more than a year of being closed, with registration fees also split and donated across several worthy causes that

AUDITION NOTICE: Abigail’s Party

WT is committed to being a diverse and open organisation. Auditions are open to anyone, regardless of background or experience, and we particularly welcome those who have been traditionally under-represented in theatre.

The first show that I was involved with at WT was Glorious! in January 2017 as the production manager. However, I am primarily a stage manager and have been involved in a number of shows since then, both backstage and/or operating the

AUDITION NOTICE: September in the Rain

WT is committed to being a diverse and open organisation. Auditions are open to anyone, regardless of background or experience, and we particularly welcome those who have been traditionally under-represented in theatre. Please note that these auditions have now closed. Before the new season starts in September we will be putting on a ‘COVID-friendly’ show, if government regulations and the virus permit! It is ‘COVID-friendly’ in that it is a double hander, making rehearsals and performances easily socially distanced. September in the Rain is a comedy drama by Britain’s

The website project has actually also been undertaken alongside our new box office system project, delivering a brand new way to interact with us online, book your tickets, and find everything you might need to
