About

As a charity and non-profit organisation, Frinton Summer Theatre offers high-quality professional theatre at local prices for the communites in and visitors to Frinton-on-Sea and beyond.

Every year from mid-July, Frinton Summer Theatre runs a season of weekly changing plays, comedy and music events during July and August at the McGrigor Hall, and produces a breathtaking musical in a big top tent on Frinton Greensward.

In its 80-year history, Frinton Summer Theatre has been a career springboard for actors such as Vanessa Redgrave, Julian Fellowes, John Osbourne, Lynda Bellingham and Owen Teale.

By keeping the beautiful tradition of summer seaside ‘weekly rep’ alive, it not only remains an important seedbed for future talent in British Theatre, but also provides an attractive holiday destination for visitors to the beautiful Essex Sunshine Coast.
