The Theatre Group contacts members when a new Theatre Royal brochure is available as most of our outings are to theatre productions. We then request tickets for popular shows. We cover all types of production from ballet to rock and roll and serious drama to musicals. With more than 100 members there is enthusiasm for many events. A discount is often available on the seat prices, sometimes less than a pound but occasionally several pounds. Members sign up for the shows they are interested in at monthly meetings and pay for them in advance.
We have been to some events at the Pavilions and those who are keen on cinema often go to the matinees at Plymouth Arts Centre which is a friendly venue a short walk from Royal Parade. Shown there are both foreign films and the very popular general release films which arrive a few weeks later than at the big cinemas. For more information about films, see also the Films page.
We also try to encompass more of the Arts in general and pay occasional visits to art galleries and exhibitions such as at Penlee in Penzance, Falmouth etc. We welcome suggestions for visits.
Please contact us at a monthly meeting if you would like to join the group or through the website CONTACT link.
