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 dedicated to presenting and producing the best drama, comedy, dance and music available to make us a Playhouse for Everyone.
Support us by signing up to our newly launched Friends scheme, a membership with a fantastic range of benefits for just £60 a year.
For those who would like to further support the Playhouse, we have also launched our Patron scheme, offering an insight into the exciting work we do on stage and off. See below for the different levels of support available.
