Welcome to the Place Online

The Taunton Thespians have been providing live theatre for and by the people of Taunton and surrounding area since 1927. The Thespians' home is The Place in Wilfred Road, Taunton, Somerset, England. Every year the Thespians entertain thousands of people by:
  • Staging two major main-house productions, for many years at the Brewhouse Theatre, from November 2009 till March 2014 at the Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre, returning to the Brewhouse in November 2014
  • Participating in drama festivals in other theatres around Somerset
  • Putting on in-house productions for members
  • Spending two weeks on the road with a touring production every summer
If you'd like to suggest a script or direct a play, take a look at the Production Subcommittee pages.
We also provide Murder Mystery evenings for parties, village halls and fund-raising events around the area and are developing our outreach activities further.
In the menu on the left you'll see links to more information. On this site, links to other pages are in bold, red text. The site is designed to be fast to load, and as accessible as possible, by computer, WAP or screen reader.
To see what's happening in amateur drama in Taunton, come along to a Club Night. There's no charge, and you're very welcome. Just drop along to The Place at 7.30pm on the first Wednesday of any month from October to May. A brief note on what's on at The Place can be found in the Diary.
