The Miller Centre was opened in October 1977. The centre is a registered charity and was named after Dorothy Miller, the founder of the Caterham Players in 1945. The centre hosts Caterham’s very own theatre, which is very much a hidden gem within the community. It was originally a church, followed by a school and finally became a day centre as well as a theatre and cinema.
So if you fancy watching a play or viewing a classic or recent film, visit millercentretheatre.org to find out what’s on.
Want to get more involved? Productions are held through the year and auditions are open to everyone. There are also many opportunities available to those who would prefer not to be on stage, whether it is lighting, sound, wardrobe, box office sales, set design or stage management that you are interested in.
The stage has a much sought-after variable speed revolve, together with high standard technical equipment.
Other facilities within the centre include meeting rooms and a studio, as well as an incredible wardrobe and props department, with items and costumes dating back over 100 years! Many of these are available to hire, so with World Book Day just around the corner you may well want to drop by and see what they have.
The Miller Centre Club also hosts a wide array of social activities, including book groups, bridge, crafts, quilting, painting (oil and watercolour), scrabble, folk dancing, table tennis, pilates, Tai Chi and yoga. The lunch club offers home cooked meals, and community coffee mornings are held every Friday at 11:00.
The Miller Centre Young Players is the theatre’s own youth group and is for children age eight to 16. The group focus on various acting techniques and performs at the Miller Centre and other local theatres in the area.
