Penlee Open Air Theatre
The Open Air Theatre in Penlee Park had its first season in the early 1950s. The Theatre seats around 200 people and, being situated in the middle of Penzance, it has ample parking, lending itself to an ever increasing audience. The theatre was little used until the late 1980s but since then more companies have used it each year, drawn by its slyvan setting in this peaceful park.
A wide range of performances take place throughout the summer season which usually runs from July to September. In previous years, these have included Circus, Choirs, Bands, Musicals and Plays ranging from Alice in Wonderland to The Taming of the Shrew.
