The Playhouse has been bringing drama and laughter to the city of Oxford since it was built in 1938. This celebrated theatre is situated at the city center, neighboring the Randolph Hotel and across the historic Ashmolean Museum. The theater works closely with the Oxford University and regularly hosts student productions by their Dramatic Society.
Classic with contemporary flair
The Playhouse features the typical Regency architecture of the early 19th century and is lavish in its décor and furnishing. The theater enjoys successful reviews thanks to modern amenities including disabled access, comfortable seating and productions that resonate with the audience. Two well-stocked theater bars, one on each floor, cater to the audience efficiently.
The Playhouse is a place to visit especially if you’re in the city during the Christmas season. It’s when they put on an extravagant show for their traditional pantomime which is usually a rip-roaring success with families.
