About Us

Sheringham Little Theatre

Throughout the year 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.

Dont Dress For Dinner Girls!

The theatre is renowned for being one of the last remaining outposts of a summer theatre season, offering a handful of plays using a small team of talented professional actors. In 2020 we will mark celebrating the diamond 60-year milestone of these special shows.

Beauty and The Beast

Our panto is also a big draw for families across north Norfolk – mixing a professional cast with local talent and some stunning special effects – all in the intimate atmosphere of our welcoming auditorium.

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.
