About Us

The Warehouse Theatre WeymouthWeymouth Drama Club is an amateur dramatics organisation located in Weymouth, Dorset. It has been producing comedies, musicals and plays for seventy eight years. Performances are held at The Warehouse Theatre (the club’s own intimate studio theatre) and at the Weymouth Pavilion owned by Weymouth & Portland Borough Council.

The Weymouth Drama Club was formed in 1931 and had presented plays annually since then, except for the 1935-45 war years. It presented the first straight play in the Pavilion Theatre after it opened in 1960.

In addition to our adult membership, we also have a group for young adults and four separate childrens groups. We also have workshops and social events at our Warehouse Theatre on selected Tuesdays. The usual starting time is 7.45 pm – see our LATEST NEWS page for details

The Club is open to everyone and all productions are cast by open audition. We also provide our own technical support with an extensive wardrobe and props department. During productions, audiences may take advantage of our own intimate bar.
