Theatre

We plan to build a well sound-proofed cinema / theatre with almost 100 seats in the south-east corner of the site.

The cinema / theatre design has rows of fixed comfortable seating with some of the front seats being removable, enabling easy reconfiguration of the space for different theatrical or musical performances.

The theatre will offer a varied programme of live performances including drama, comedy and musical entertainment.

The theatre will provide great facilities for the performing arts community. Amateur dramatic performers (Bovey Tracey Players) will stage 3 shows each year in the theatre, but in addition we will welcome touring small-scale theatrical productions, live comedy and poetry, classical and contemporary musical performances, as well as “open-mike” nights for aspiring performers.

On Saturdays, we will run drama workshops for young people. The theatre will also be available for schools and youth groups to put on their productions.

We foresee that the theatre could also be used for workshops, such as creative writing, and those benefitting from good lighting and projection facilities, such as photography and drama.
