or even a small city or
of an inward and probable
is the outward sign
- Sir Laurence Olivier
It's hard to believe that 2016 was the 35th anniversary of our theatre club. During that time we have put on numerous beloved (and award winning) shows - so many we can't actually remember some of them! The world has changed around us and we've seen members come and go, but we are always looking forward to the future and our next production.
We decided to talk to some of our members to ask them, first hand, about what they can remember when the club started all those years ago. The first conversation with founder-member Mary Rashleigh is online now. We hope to have more club members chats posted here soon.
“All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players.”

SUPPORT US AND DONATE!
HELP US KEEP THE THEATRE ALIVE! Our small theatre club isn't privately funded, rather we fund our productions and the maintenance of our facilities through revenue raised from staging each show and also, largely, from generous donations from our patrons.
As Sir Lawrence Olivier once said, "I believe that in a great city, or even in a small city or a village, a great theater is the outward and visible sign of an inward and probable culture."
We believe that there is no finer culture than that which you can find in Polruan. We hope you agree. In the near future, we aim to have a direct 'donation' link to Paypal. In the meantime, if you are a fan of our work or of small, amateur, theatre clubs in general, please do donate to our cause.
Cheques can be made payable to Polruan Theatre Club and sent to the Village Hall address.
Polruan is a small village with a disproportionately high number of holiday lets. As a consequence, we are always looking for new & talented people to come and join our ranks, be you an actor looking to tread the boards or someone more interested in helping us out behind the scenes. We endeavor to mount 2 plays a year and we'd like to encourage people throughout Cornwall to join our theatre club.
Please use the form below for any inquiries or email us directly to send in CV's / headshots.
In the future we are also planning to have workshops and master classes with Tony Cottrell, one of our directors, for those interested in learning more about stage craft, acting, directing or writing for theatre.
