Progress Theatre

Progress Theatre

South East

Progress Theatre is a self-governing, self-funding theatre group in Reading, run by volunteers, and founded in 1946.

Our intimate 96 seat venue has a fully licensed bar and is the oldest producing theatre in Reading. There is wheelchair access and a hearing loop, and we are committed to making further improvements in the coming years to make our building more accessible. Progress is governed and maintained by volunteers. We have a thriving Youth Theatre, a Digital Theatre, Writers' Group, Friends of Progress patrons, and a friendly and energetic community of members. We also enjoy good relations with the Arts and Leisure department of Reading Borough Council, who support us in our Open Air Shakespeare productions at Reading Abbey Ruins each summer.
