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 plus an annual Pantomime. We are an active group who have members from the multicutural background we inhabit however, we do perform our productions in English.

Currently we perform our shows at the Lagoa Auditorium, which seats up to 300 for each performance, but occasionally we perform shows at the beautiful Teatro Gregorio Mascarenhas in Silves along with theatres in Portimao and Lagos.

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.

Our next production is Kindertransport by Diane Samuels

Workshops to be held on May 25 and June 1 with auditions on June 8
