Progress Theatre is a self-governing, self-funding theatre group founded in 1946, producing its first shows in 1947. It is governed and maintained by volunteers. The theatre building is on The Mount, Reading. As a registered charity, we are committed to promoting education in the performing arts as well as producing a programme of varied, interesting and challenging drama to the highest standard.
Our intimate 96 seat venue has a fully licensed bar and is the oldest producing theatre in Reading. There is wheelchair access to the Theatre with a seat for disabled patrons and their carer, as well as a recently-installed hearing loop. Progress has a thriving Youth Theatre and a Writers' Group.
