Hello & Welcome..
After an incredible 2023 theatre season with the first ever open-air production of Hairspray, we are delighted to announce that a brand new production of Singin’ in the Rain will hit the Kilworth stage in 2024!We are excited to get started now and welcome our long term, loyal group bookers back to our theatre, as well as hopefully a lot of groups visiting our wonderful theatre for the first time.
About the Theatre
The Celia Mackay Theatre at Kilworth House Hotel is a hidden gem producing some of the best West End quality productions outside of London. This stunning 550 seat open-air theatre is dedicated to producing and presenting large scale professional musical theatre and was recognised in the national press as
one of the Best Outdoor Theatres in the UK.
There’s a special aura and magic about open-air theatre on a beautiful English summer’s evening, so what better way to experience that magic than amidst the magnificent surroundings of the Kilworth estate, enjoying a professional production of a standard rarely seen outside the West End of London.
About our shows...
Kilworth House Theatre is the brainchild of Celia Mackay, who is the producer of all our productions and, when the theatre opened in 2007, her dream and vision was to present professional, musical theatre shows of West End standard but with tickets at a fraction of those of London prices - and free parking!
All our productions are created and produced exclusively for Kilworth, and our creative team, company and orchestra are all drawn from the West End. The acclaim that our productions consistently draws from both audiences and critics alike are testament to the superb standards Celia has created over the past sixteen years.
SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN in 2024 will be Celia's 29th production at our wonderful and unique theatre.
