Milton Keynes Theatre is one of the region’s leading live entertainment venues, showcasing the best West End and touring productions from across the UK.
Having opened on 4 October 1999, after a 25 year campaign to build a new theatre, our 1400 seat auditorium with its fully retracting ceiling, continues to provide an intimate and memorable experience for our patrons. We offer a wide and varied programme of first class dance, drama, musicals, opera, comedy and children’s shows – providing something perfect for all ages to enjoy.
Alongside the West End and world-class theatrical productions there are numerous alternative ways for you to get involved with our theatre. This could be through our Creative Learning department, who offer many show-based workshops and classes for all ages, including an incredibly successful Youth Theatre. Our community productions are also popular with local groups having the opportunity to perform on our stage. Additionally, if you're interested in more than just what happens on stage, you can book a backstage tour where you can learn more about the building and witness what happens behind the scenes of a working theatre.
