Oxford Playhouse has entertained and inspired the people of Oxford and the wider region since opening in 1938.

Once known as the University Theatre, Oxford Playhouse is now an independent charitable trust (900039) dedicated to presenting and producing the best drama, comedy, dance and music available to make us a Playhouse for Everyone. We present over 600 performances every year, tour nationally and internationally, and last year played to over 250,000 people.
