About Local Theatre


Some Information about local trips from organiser Lynn Merry - contact email


There are lots of shows on locally to enjoy.

The venues are mostly Somerset West Playhouse and the Drama Factory -

their website links are below - so check these for more information about shows.

Other venues may feature from time to time and details will be supplied via email.

Click on this link for The Playhouse and this one for Drama Factory

       How it works :

1. You receive a notice via Peter Moore with information on the show.  

2. I take your bookings via u3atheatretrips@gmail.com, confirm by email,

You can either pay the venue direct (eg Drama Factory) ,  by EFT or pay at the door

If you don't get a confirmation from me within a few days of  writing to me, then I don't have your email, so please try again! 

**Please - remember to tell me when you have paid by EFT. ** 

3. Make your own way to the venue and collect your tickets at the door/box office 15-30 mins before the show. 

If you look at the tab, local theatre details, you'll see what's booking now and what's coming in the future.

For shows with long runs, the theatre often gives us one discounted date for the U3A but you can still book other dates for yourselves - by using the Drama Factory's own website, Computicket online or at Checkers etc. 

Finally, please remember that Theatres offer discounts to U3A MEMBERS which may be different to those offered to the general public. Please do not abuse this service by booking for others, including family and friends- get them to join instead, it's only R70 for a full year of wonderful theatre!
