The Theatre By The Sea

The Marine Theatre is a 120 year old theatre on the sea front of Lyme Regis Dorset. We host over 200 shows and events each year including theatre, comedy and music, and have a busy thriving Bar and Café.

The theatre office is open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. The Marine Theatre Bar opens an hour before each show.

You can buy tickets for our shows online, or from our Box Office in the Lyme Regis Tourist Information Centre open 9am-5pm.


Marine Theatre’s summer production ‘Monmouth’ performed by the community tells the epic story of the Monmouth Rebellion, which began in Lyme in 1685 this July.
