 Connecting professional and amateur theatre in Newbury, West Berkshire and beyond

Contacts and links

We will include all amateur productions (plays, musicals, operas, pantomimes, school productions, ...) and professional plays, musicals and kids' theatre in Newbury and the surrounding areas. We DON'T do ballet, music, professional opera, dance, 'celebrity' appearances, or comedy acts. If you're involved with a local amateur dramatic group and you want free publicity, you can put as much as you want about your group on this site.

  • Comments on plays - email the editor (Paul Shave)
  • Comments on the site - email the webmaster
  • Change your theatre's details, or add a new group to the list - email site support
  • Or you can phone me (OK, I confess, I'm the webmaster and site support as well) on 01635 866800. But this is ONLY for things to do with this web site. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT THE WEB SITE FOR ANY THEATRE OR AMATEUR DRAMATIC GROUP. If you want theatre or group contact information, go to the theatre's or group's page - via the menu above: Theatres, or Amateur groups.
  • Our privacy policy is here.

Links to groups and theatres outside our area

We have to draw the boundaries somewhere, but if you're just outside them you can get a link here.
