Think of drama as a tool, a multi-purpose tool, that you can use to sharpen interest, hammer home a point, smooth a difficult subject, lift confidence and widen horizons. It gives life to the written word and, lest we forget, entertains. Drama is a tool that you can use and we can help you use it.

About Us

Playtime Theatre Company was established in 1983 with the aim of bringing innovative and entertaining drama to young people in the South of England.
