General information

Season Details

We are an amateur company and aim to produce two or three plays a season and aim to create a balanced season by performing a mix of comedies, farces, thrillers and other serious plays. This not only gives our audiences variety in their theatre-going programme but also gives the company a wider scope for the various acting talents of the members and presents different challenges for the backstage crew.

Theatre Details

Our home is the 272 seater William Penney Theatre which is part of the Aldermaston Recreational Society complex on the AWE site in Tadley. The entrance can be found on the A340 Basingstoke to Pangbourne road just before the Heath End roundabout. We offer pre and interval drinks from the Recreational Society bar or coffee and tea.

Please Note: An infrared hearing loop is installed in the theatre for the benefit of hearing aid users. The sound system conforms to BS6083 pt4 & BS7594, more information about infra red sound systems can be obtained from RNID.

Disabled Access

We welcome disabled people and can cater for 2 wheelchairs per performance at the front of the auditorium. Access to the auditorium can be obtained via side entrance ramps by advising the Box Office of the requirement at the time of booking. There is also a disabled toilet available.

Access to the bar and coffee room is restricted. However, if you require refreshments during the interval please speak to the Front of House Manager. Tea or coffee can be brought to your seat.
