Oxford Playhouse is a theatre for everyone.

Oxford Playhouse and its Burton Taylor Studio present and produce a wide range of live performance. Our programme includes the best of British and international drama, family shows, contemporary dance and music, student and amateur shows, comedy, lectures and poetry.

The Playhouse produces and tours its own shows, hosts Artists in Residence and presents Playhouse Plays Out, an ongoing series of off-site events which happen at locations across the county. 


The theatre's Participation team work with over 15,000 people each year through post show discussions, workshops, work experience, holiday schemes, a youth theatre and a young people’s theatre company.

Oxford Playhouse is committed to delivering this artistic vision of being a Playhouse for everyone, inspiring people and transforming lives by cultivating and championing creativity - on our stages, in our communities, and online.
