Penzance Open Air Theatre

The Theatre in the Park

Penzance Council operate an Open Air Theatre in Penlee Park. 

The Open Air Theatre in Penlee Park had its first season in the early 1950's.

The Theatre seats around 300 people and, being situated in the middle of Penzance, it has ample parking, lending itself to an ever increasing audience.

The theatre was little used until the late 1980's but since then more companies have used it each year, drawn by its sylvan setting in this peaceful park.
A wide range of performances take place throughout the summer season which usually runs from July to September.

In previous years, these have included Circus, Choirs, Bands, Musicals and Plays ranging from Alice in Wonderland to The Taming of the Shrew.
