The first Orange Tree Theatre was founded on 31st December 1971 as the Richmond Theatre.  The venue was a room above The Orange Tree pub and had a capacity of 80 seats.  At first, productions were all performed in daylight hours, but when theatre lighting was installed, evening performances began and the venue became known for high quality and innovative productions.

Due to demand for tickets the theatre moved to a larger site, a nearby disused primary school.  On 14th February 1991, the Orange Tree Theatre opened with Arthur Murphy’s All in the Wrong.

Upcoming Productions
