About the Dolman Theatre

Newport Playgoers Society owns and operates the 400-seater Dolman Theatre in the heart of the city of Newport in South Wales. The theatre was purpose built for Playgoers in 1967, following a re-development of  that included the demolition of the previous theatre, known as The Newport Little Theatre, which was housed in a converted church.
