The Cornish Playhouse is a vibrant theatrical and educational facility comprising main auditorium and a flexible black-box theater.

The Cornish Playhouse is a landmark of modern architecture. Built for the World’s Fair of 1962 and now operated by Cornish College of the Arts as its highest-profile venue, the Playhouse presents a full range of performing arts events open to the public. Between the work created by Cornish students and the visiting professional productions from a wide range of community partners, the Cornish Playhouse offers rich experiences not only in theater but also in dance, music and the visual arts. As part of its public benefits, the Cornish Playhouse’s Artist Incubator Residencies offer free space for artists to create and test new work.
