GO Theatre In Oxford

Theatre in Oxford There’s plenty of great venues in Oxford to see original theatre, or to have a go at treading the boards yourself.

For faultless touring productions on a grand scale including visits from the Welsh National Opera and The English National Ballet, the Apollo Theatre [map] on George Street is the place to be. With a seating capacity of 2,000 the Apollo is one of the area’s most popular theatres and is a good place to do some celebrity-spotting.

The Oxford Playhouse [map] on Beaumont Street is one of the best places to see new and exciting plays that are produced in-house.

Student performers including Oxford graduates Rowan Atkinson and Dudley Moore have acted on the Playhouse stage, and plays such as Cyrano De Bergerac adapted by Anthony Burgess have certainly caught the imagination of theatre-goers.

Close to the Playhouse is the Burton Taylor Theatre [map], over on Gloucester Street. This intimate venue seats just 50 people and hosts a selection of two-handers and monologues from some of Oxford University’s brightest young writers, directors and actors.

Another great little venue is The Old Fire Station Studio Theatre [map], which hosts small touring productions including some of the best names in the comedy world.

Pegasus Theatre [map] can be found on Magdalen Road and offers a mixture of contemporary performances, educational workshops and classes for those keen to get up on the stage themselves. This is also a good place to see some enchanting children’s theatre.
