About Us

The Cotswold Playhouse is the building, but it is owned and managed by The Cotswold Players, a registered charity, which is managed by a board of trustees. Our constitution can be found here.

As well as a modern, fully equipped stage and auditorium, our theatre offers multiple changing rooms, storage for our set, costumes and props, a welcoming bar and lounge, and even a dance studio.

We typically stage five or six productions of our own each year, from classics to musicals, drama to pantomime. And we increasingly take our productions out into the community: we have recently performed at the Stroud Theatre Festival, the Stroud Shakespeare Festival, St Laurence Church and Stroud Brewery.

We also make the facilities available to visiting companies, schools, dance classes, toddler groups and many more.
Everything is run by volunteers, so we are always keen to welcome new members.

We may be unpaid, but we aspire to professional standards in everything we do. Why not join us? We can offer you fun, friendship and the chance to be involved in all aspects of theatre, in a relaxed, welcoming and safe environment.
