About Us

The Algarveans (or to give the group its official Portuguese name, Os Algarvios Teatro Experimental) is an amateur drama group based in the Algarve, Portugal.

We aim to produce two plays a year and an annual Pantomime. We are an active group who have members from the multicultural background we inhabit, however we do perform our productions in English.

Currently we perform our shows at the beautiful Lagoa Auditorium, which seats up to 300 for each performance, occasionally we perform shows at the equally impressive Lagos Cultural Centre.

The group benefits from having members of all ages, the youngest being aged 10 to others in their 80s, we are an inclusive group and do not audition for membership, although we do have informal auditions for shows, that said in the pantomimes we try and perform each year there is normally a part  for everyone.

There is also a great social side to the group and we try and organise as many events as our production schedule allows.

If you are interested in finding out more about our group, please feel free to contact us. We would love to hear from you!
