Please help us to keep the magic of theatre alive in Plymouth by making a donation to TRP.
Without your support and your donation, we couldn’t continue the wonderful work that we do for our community through our regular workshops. These have been running throughout the pandemic and have been a real lifeline to many vulnerable people, especially during the lockdown period. Help us to keep running these workshops for our local community.

COVID’s lockdown period showed us how much we need the support of our Members and we wanted to give more people the opportunity to join as a Member by offering new levels.
