About Us

Sheringham Little Theatre

All year round Sheringham Little Theatre serves up a varied menu of arts events for all.

Our stage hosts fun farce, spine-tingling suspense, singalong musicals, and family panto, while movies, and top national arts events are beamed on to big screen. Cosy café-style comedy and jazz are staged in the coffee bar.

Things have been different during the pandemic, but as restrictions ease visitor safety is always at the forefront of everything we do. And  there’s still plenty of fun to be had.

The theatre is renowned for being one of the last remaining outposts of a summer theatre season. During the pandemic we have been doing things a little differently – but things are beginning to return to “normal”, so monitor this site, and our social media channels for news of new shows that will entertain visitors and locals alike.

Rapunzel the Lockdown panto

Our intimate panto is a big favourite for families across north Norfolk. Covid restrictions saw us distil the show into a smaller, shorter production that is still brimming with fun, song, dance, and audience participation. Tickets for this year’s panto, Jack and the Beanstalk, are now on sale.

We are a community theatre, and we like to get the community involved in our shows – from local “am drams” to our own youth groups staging drama and musicals.

And our Hub café provides a popular watering hole for people to drop in for snacks, light lunches, cakes and cuppas – as well as pre show suppers at some events – all in friendly surroundings with a theatrical flavour.

Debbie Thompson with the People's Choice award

Twice in the past three years we have won a People’s Choice title in the Norfolk Arts awards after a public vote.

We are proud of that achievement – and our busy year-round programme of professional and amateur arts event aimed at providing something for everyone.

For a “little” venue, we pack a lot in.
