The Lamproom Theatre Company is based in Barnsley and performs at the rapidly developing Lamproom Theatre on Westgate.
Born out of a derelict Methodist Chapel, the venue is Barnsley's only theatre and has been developed by a hard working group of volunteers. Regular visitors are amazed at the changes, which are always made to make theatre-going in Barnsley a pleasure.
Apart from the Lamproom Theatre Company (LTC), there are thriving youth theatre groups, one for under 11 (The Lamplyters) and one for over 11 (LYTEs). In addition there is the Lamproom Musical Theatre Company.
These companies are at once separate but at times mutually dependent according to various production needs.
Barnsley Theatre hosts many plays, musicals, and one man shows every year, providing the people of Barnsley with an opportunity to enjoy theatre, comedy, music, panto, family entertainment and live performances of great variety.
Barnsley Theatre and the Barnsley Lamproom continue to grow and develop, making it the premier focal point for theatre and theatrical events in Barnsley.
