Due to the Covid-19 pandemic Penrith Playhouse is currently closed and all events are cancelled until further notice. Our own play, Mandrake will be rescheduled for 2021.
If people have bought tickets on line Ticketsource will refund them. If you have bought them through the Tourist Information Office you should contact them about refunds.
Mike Head, chair of the Players’ theatre committee, said: “We are disappointed about the situation but in these difficult times there are worse things to concern us than performances. When things are better, we will be back providing the area with the entertainment they enjoy. However, we are hopeful we can commence with productions in 2021″.

Penrith Playhouse is the only permanent, Member run Theatre in Penrith, and thrives on the commitment of volunteers.Browse the site, and then come and see what we have to offer – or even come and take part. There are not only opportunities to act on stage, but also to help with a variety of tasks behind the scenes; including set building & painting, costumes & make-up, sound & lighting, props & stage management.
Penrith Players continue to go from strength to strength with an undiminished commitment to putting on excellent productions in a modern, comfortable and friendly environment. We also have a bar, staffed by members, which plays host to various live music events throughout the year.
We always offer a warm welcome to all new members who want to become a part of the club and would jump at the chance of getting more younger members of the community on board. There is plenty to do both on stage and behind the scenes.
