The Watermill Theatre has developed a reputation as one of Britain’s most exciting regional theatres. From this beautiful theatre, work has been created that is admired around the world. Over 64,000 people attend shows at the Watermill each year where we mount some 12 new productions annually, ranging from Shakespeare and musicals to classics, new plays and youth theatre productions. Our work is also seen on tour around the UK and our rural touring productions play in village halls and small arts centres. You can join our online mailing list to get up-to-date news on all our shows. We aim to be a focal point for our community and are proud to be a leading force in cultivating the theatre-makers of tomorrow. Our unique environment encourages a real sense of ensemble and our intimate 220-seat auditorium also means that there is a particularly strong connection between the actors and audience. This combination makes the Watermill a very special place to visit.
