The Plymouth Theatre Company is based in the Devonport Playhouse, Fore Street and is 110 years old. The company formed in 1899 and is still going strong today having performed in three different centuries in Plymouth.

In the 19th Century they became known as The City of Plymouth Operatic Society. That was until 2002 when they decided that their name should encompass all that they had done and achieved over the years and became known simply as the Plymouth Theatre Company.

The company has presented over 140 productions over the years, from Merry England to Me and My Girl and from Calamity Jane to Crazy for You. They have not only performed musicals but also Gilbert and Sullivan, Music Hall, Vaudeville, Concerts and Pantomime!

The company has produced many acclaimed shows, being affiliated to NODA (National Operatic and Dramatic Association), and are regularly reviewed and won many awards. 

The company members have also regularly been in 'Music of the Night', which has been running every two years in the Royal Citadel, Plymouth since 1992. The company has provided many of the leading soloists for the productions as well as many of the dancers and behind the scenes crew. The Music of the Night has a cast of 400+ people, uses the band Royal Marines and Royal Artillery and the Director/Choreographer Angela Collins is from the Plymouth Theatre Company.

The Plymouth Theatre Company’s next show at the Devonport Playhouse will be 42nd Street; details of this performance will follow shortly.
