The Seckford Theatre

Woodbridge School is privileged to be home to an incredible state-of-the-art 350-capacity venue: The Seckford Theatre. Fully operational and constantly buzzing with rehearsals, shows and events of uncommon breadth, style and standard, students are not only able to practice their performance skills, but also get valuable experience in all the technical aspects of an exciting, professional production.

A facility for all the community

The Seckford Theatre reflects the commitment of both Woodbridge School and the Seckford Foundation to benefit all in the local area. In addition to staging numerous School productions, the Theatre has welcomed local groups such as the Deben Players, The Company of Four and The Eastern Angles, alongside national companies such as The Royal Ballet and the Royal Shakespeare Company.


A versatile performance space

The Seckford Theatre is designed to be used in multiple configurations, able to meet all kinds of production needs. Various layouts are able to accommodate conventional stage performances, full-floor presentations, in-the-round shows and more. Our staff are happy to talk over the individual requirements of any prospective shows.

Nurturing talent

As part of the School’s curriculum, students are given a broad understanding of Drama through study of recognised texts, practical performance and devising their own scripts, with thorough analysis at every stage.

Woodbridge School’s Drama department is associated with LAMDA, the oldest drama school in the United Kingdom, founded in 1861. It is also the largest statuary speech and drama award body in the country. From Year 7, students are able to sign up for weekly LAMDA lessons, on their own or with a friend. This personal tutelage, delivered by our exceptional LAMDA staff, is a great way to develop performance skills whilst gaining confidence.

While extra-curricular activities also include Drama clubs for the Prep, Senior School and Sixth Form, students are also able to explore the practical and technical aspects of staging a professional production, from theatre lighting and sound to set builds, stage management and promotion.
