Scene One Plus


ANNOUNCEMENTS OF UPCOMING PRODUCTIONS



WELCOME TO SCENE ONEPLUS

Building on its well-regarded predecessor, Scene One, Scene OnePlus is an invaluable guide to what’s happening on the theatre scene in the area roughly bounded by Poole, Southampton, Winchester and Salisbury.

You’ll find reviews, news, previews and notices of auditions. The emphasis is particularly – but not exclusively – on amateur productions and on those which are running in the area for more than one performance.

Scene OnePlus exists for one reason and one reason only: to promote and encourage local theatre. So if you are a venue or a company in the area we cover and would like us to preview or review your productions, or if you simply have news that you would like to let people know about, please get in touch with us via the contact form.

Previews and reviews are free, but we do make a small charge for advertisements on our home page to help cover our costs – please contact us for details.

We are not associated with any other website or publication. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
