The Green Room Club is a theatre production company run entirely by volunteers. They stage at least half a dozen productions a year and invite other companies to use their space in Carlisle’s West Walls. They are a popular company and their annual panto attracts a large audience. Additionally, the company host workshops and a variety of smaller events throughout the year. The Green Room Club is furnished with a bar and clubroom which is popular with visitors before a show.
Additionally, they encourage frequent visitors to become members to support their theatre company that has been a presence in Carlisle since the 1950s. Members to the Club can enjoy priority tickets. The Green Room Club has been a part of the Little Theatre Guild since 1985. Their cast and crew are volunteers. The Green Room is also keen for more people to get involved with their productions! They have roles in cast, set design and tech, front of house, and more always up for grabs. Get involved in the local community and make friends.
The theatre is located in the West Walls district of Carlisle. Transformed into a theatre in the 1960s, the building has stood since the late 19th century as a coach house. After the closing of Her Majesty’s Theatre in 1962, the theatre group ‘The Fortune Players’ worked with other societies and the public to bring theatre back to Carlisle. Funded using charitable loans and public donations, The Green Room Club is a symbol of Carlisle’s amateur theatre scene.
