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 to be built. Managed by ATG, the expansive theatre and entertainment centre has a fully retracting ceiling, customer lifts, bars and facilities, with a seating capacity of over 1,400. As well as hosting top touring productions from across the UK, Milton Keynes Theatre is home to a successful Youth Theatre that regularly performs on the vast stage.

With large West End musicals such as Sister Act, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Dirty Dancing coming to the stage, the venue boasts a modern auditorium that comfortably seats an equally large audience. Built across three levels, seating is split between the Stalls, Circle and Upper Circle, with Slips located just behind the Upper Circle. The Stalls and Circle are the largest sections of the theatre, with over 500 seats in both sections. The Upper Circle is more intimate, with just under 300 seats and further seats in the Slips. Due to the modernity of the venue, seats are comfortable and padded, with exceptional views and roomy legroom guaranteed throughout.
