New Theatre Oxford

    New Theatre Oxford is the main commercial theatre in Oxford, England. It has a capacity of 1,785 people, is on George Street, in the centre of the city and puts on a wide variety of shows, including musical theatre, stand-up comedy, and concerts.

    here has been a theatre on George Street for almost 185 years. The first theatre was built in 1836, and a second in 1886. In 1908, the Dorrill family took over the venue and finally in 1934, the third Theatre opened; the ‘New Theatre’.

    Stanley Dorrill masterminded the rebuilding of the theatre as we know it today. He commissioned a new building from the well-known theatre architects William and T.R. Milburn of Sunderland. The Milburns developed the decadent art-deco interior with T.P Bennett and Sons, who also designed the Saville Theatre in London.
