About Us

Since 1901

We have been entertaining audiences for over 100 years…

Amazing Productions

Local theatre is such an important part of local community and the attendance at recent productions just shows how loved KATS is.

Fantastic Casts

Talented people make fun friends! KATS is a fantastic way of letting your inner drama out and a great way to meet new friends… we are equally as social as we are passionate about performing.

Community Benefits

KATS is a hub for many of the local volunteer groups, charities, museum and other community based initiatives., who are always looking for willing helpers!

Lots Of Opportunities

Younger members particularly benefit from KATS – building social confidence, learning new skills that have real future career benefits and helping to develop maturity and communication abilities.

Awards & Recognition

KATS has received awards from NODA South West for Oliver, Fiddler on the Roof and Blood Brothers in recent years.

We have been fortunate to receive financial grants from Kingsbridge Town Council, Kingsbridge Estuary Round Table and the Luscombe Trust – the latter in recognition of KATS support to KCC (Kingsbridge Community College) students.


100 years young

KATS has been entertaining local audiences for over 100 years, with Trial by Jury as the first production in 1901. Initially an operatic company, by the 21st century it had evolved into a multi talented theatrical company producing a musical each March and a play in September.

All performers and crew are members of the Society and as well as being part of the productions enjoy social get togethers during the year, usually a summer party, an autumn fundraising evening and mulled wine and mince pies in December.



I can quite truthfully say that Oliver! was probably the best KATS show I have seen…
Iain Douglas
Quite simply, this was the best amateur play I have seen in years, anywhere.

I moved to Kingsbridge in 2010 and knew absolutely nobody until I joined KATS.
