An amateur theatre established in 1925, by a group of friends and relatives, The Curtain Theatre, situated in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, is still going strong over 90 years later; producing five interesting and unusual shows per year, with twelve performances per show.



Background to The Curtain Theatre, Rochdale

The Theatre took its name from the Elizabethan ‘Curtyn Theatre’, in London, at which Shakespearean plays were first performed (even before The Globe Theatre’s existence).

The Curtain Theatre celebrated in 2015, ninety years of putting on productions, without a break, even during the war years

After enduring some difficulties putting on productions first at the Drill Hall, near the old fire station, and then in a school hall in Deeplish, The Curtain Theatre moved into its present premises in 1933.

We are proud to say, that many of the customs that were used throughout our humble beginnings, still exist today. For example, because cast members were often required to help, ‘front of house’, a gown with a hood, or domino, was introduced to help to conceal their identities before they appeared on stage.
