Our Aims and Ethos


Our vision is for a space where people can tell their stories, where people of all backgrounds can journey in their imagination, create, wonder, be inspired, learn, grow, share and enjoy being entertained. 

The Underground Theatre (TUT) has a passion to encourage both emerging professional, and  amateur actors, dancers, musicians, writers, composers, producers, directors and technicians. It will supply an affordable venue with professional facilities for small performance in all genres almost every day of the week. This will include theatre, music theatre, dance, classical, jazz, rock  and folk music as well as comedy. We'll be a producing theatre and we'll be a host for other artists and companies, but we'll also provide support and expertise to  enable those who are just starting out. We intend to keep our ticket prices and venue costs down to encourage  the widest possible community use of the theatre, for both performers and audience, recognising that the theatre is situated in one of the most deprived wards in the country, and yet one with beautiful new waterfront developments. 

We believe that everyone should have equal access to art, no matter what their status, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, religion, age, education or wealth. Theatre, dance and music can be transformational and are an essential part of a persons wellbeing. That's what we're about and we want to encourage others to share our vision.

Formed in 2014 as a Community Interest Company, TUT will re-invest any profit back into the company and into the performing arts and local community, helping to fund and enable a new level of  emerging performance art in the Southwest. 

Based in Stonehouse, Plymouth, we  seek to work alngside and enhance the existing excellent Theatres in Britain's Ocean City, offering new cultural opportunities for the community, whilst encouraging direct involvement of local residents with this new community theatre as well as encouraging use of the building by and for the local community.

Our  planned opening has been delayed  whilst we await the outcome of several grant applications. We are currently in the process of fundraising, whilst renovating and fitting out our exciting new venue. If you, or your company are interested in sponsoring us or helping in any way, please contact us  by email or phone 07900 791988


You can help make this project happen!

Our crowdfunder raised over £10,000 toward our renovations, but we still need to raise at least another £130,000 and are currently applying for several grants. Our crowdfunder video was a bit of fun, with Jack, our theatre dog, showing you around.- have a look on the crowdfunder site!
If you would like to help our project, you can donate directly now by clicking on the Donate button below which will take you directly to a donation page. If you are a business and would like to sponsor us please get in touch via our Contacts page. We are graetful for the massive support which we have already gained, but we do still need more funding!

Thank you!!

The Underground Theatre has an ethos of making the performing arts available to all.

Training and education are part of that ethos and the theatre will host practitioners and other organisations for training sessions across the performing arts as well as our in-house training activities. We have already had a substantial number of enquiries, even before we're open!
