We are constantly seeking to improve the theatre itself and the quality of our shows. We always welcome new members who bring with them new ideas, energy and commitment. So why not join us on stage and off?
The Swan Theatre Company is committed to developing the performing arts in Yeovil and performs six shows a year, providing a wide range of opportunities for our members to perform or work backstage. In addition the theatre is a venue which is used by other groups in the area. Through our Charity Nights we have helped local charities raise thousands of pounds for their charities
In addition to the six shows a year, from time to time, we present rehearsed readings and run workshops on technical and stage-related aspects. To reinforce our links to the local community we maintain close contacts with schools and colleges in the area to explore mutually interesting projects. We aim to provide an interesting and challenging theatrical environment for people of all levels of ability.
To keep you safe and comfortable, we have recently installed a new Ventilation System. Here is the feedback so far:
“Your new ventilation system made such a difference: the ambient temperature was totally comfortable, and so much better than previously. In fact, as usual for summer productions, I brought a fan with me – which stayed in my bag!” – “From our point of view as audience members, we felt comfortable and safe in enjoying the experience, because of the systems you have put in place. We felt that the auditorium temperature was perfect, and after such a hot day too”.
Based on the opinion of 27 people on Facebook reviews.
‘For an amateur company to have managed such an accomplished and interesting production is really quite extraordinary.’ From David Davis, retired professor of Theatre in Education
“Dear Ian, and all members of the cast. May I just say how much I enjoyed Tuesday evening’s performance of Macbeth? The acting was superb – a difficult play to learn, I think, especially as many of the audience will already know some of the words, probably having learnt them at school. I loved the production, and was particularly impressed with your interpretation of the three witches, who, young and lithe, played their parts magnificently: they definitely were the Wyrd (?) Sisters! The simplicity of the set worked so well, and the added bonus of swordplay and gore made it all the more gripping.
Keep up the good work.
When a company takes on a play as familiar as Macbeth – you will be amazed how many quotes you recognise – the challenge is to find a fresh approach. With the outstanding skills and resources of the Swan Theatre and an experienced and talented cast, Ian White succeeds.

It is good to be reminded of the power of the live theatre when it comes to psychological drama – I loved the performance of “Night Must Fall”. It kept me on the edge of my seat
Really enjoyed “Night Must Fall”! It kept us guessing!
Excellent production, many congratulations to all involved. The right amount of menace conveyed with the facial expressions as well as the stance.
“Well, what can I say. Tonight’s performance of Macbeth was absolutely cracking! A beautiful set and an absolutely stellar cast!! My first time in an auditorium as a patron in 18 months and it was well worth the wait!! Great work tonight ladies and gents. I hope you have an absolutely wonderful rest of the run!!”
“Dear Team Macbeth,
Just home from a fantastic night at the theatre. Really was the complete performance – strong acting, theatrical choreography, great stage combat, super lighting and sound, fantastic apparitions and quite a bit of blood!
The audience were captivated throughout. Well done all – so great to see the theatre back and storming it!
“I very much enjoyed your production of Macbeth. Alan Morris was superb, likewise Sarah Easterbrook, with the good support of the whole cast. The portrayal and performance of the ‘weird sisters’ was mesmerising.
Thank you all for the commitment and effort which produces such high standard entertainment for us.”
“Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the production of Macbeth that we attended last night. It was the first time we had seen the play and we were very impressed by the staging, the acting and the phenomenal line-learning ! We only booked the tickets in the morning and were very glad we did !”
“It was a tour de force from you all. Congratulations”
“What a great evening ! Brilliant Macbeth tonight. Thank you xx”
“I’m never happier then when I’m in a theatre. Loved it, especially the wonderful witches!”
