About the Milton Keynes Theatre

Located in the heart of the city, Milton Keynes Theatre is a contemporary venue that first opened on October 4th 1999, following a 25 year campaign for a new theatre to be built in the area. Managed by the Ambassador Theatre Group since opening, the expansive theatre and entertainment centre was designed by architects Blonski-Heard with Kut Nadiadi and Robert Doe, and built using some of the most advanced and cutting edge techniques at the time. 

Milton Keynes Theatre sees a wide range of events each year and is home to a successful youth theatre that regularly performs on the vast, modern stage. The venue’s most notable feature is its fully retracting ceiling. The ceiling can be lowered or raised depending on the scale of an incoming production, and has allowed the theatre to host popular, large-scale West End musicals such as Sister Act, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Dirty Dancing on tour.
