Overview
More
Chorley Little Theatre is a volunteer-run independent venue staging plays, musicals, pantos, touring comedy, music and films.Built in 1910, it has been owned and operated by amdram group CADOS since 1960 and produces at least 6 full shows per year, plus 2 by Chorley Youth Theatre. It's an ideal venue for comedy shows by top stand-up comedians, and the regular film showings are digitally projected on to the big screen, with Surround Sound.There's a great-priced bar and the building has full disabled access. Any profits go back into the upkeep of the building, and all income comes from ticket and bar sales.

Went to see Kerry Godliman, what a great little theatre. Seats are clean as is the theatre. This is a small venue, which is great to see a show as you can actually see the act. I will defiantly be visiting this venue again.

I never fail to be impressed with the quality of the CADOS productions at this small (but perfectly formed) provincial theatre. I'd encourage everyone to go out and support the work they do, its amazing value for quality you get.

Chorley little theatre is one off Chorleys little gems. It has some of the most amazing shows that you will ever get in the northwest with fantastic staff and outstanding performers. It is really a great night out.
