Oficina Municipal do Teatro

The Oficina Municipal de Teatro (OMT) consists of two different spaces — The Sala Grande (Main Stage) and the Tabacaria, with different possible configurations — a Multifunctional Room (the antechamber), a rehearsal space, a workshop, a prop room, costume storage and two office spaces. It is a municipal space run by Teatrão through a protocol celebrated with The City of Coimbra. In the last few years Teatrão has launched a project making OMT a space of regular activity not only with its own productions but also with guest productions and productions of different artistic “languages” aside from theatre. There are also activities of artistic education.

Entry to the Main Stage is generally done through the Tabacaria where there is also an accessible WC.
On show days the box office opens one hour before showtime and can be found on the ground floor of OMT. From Monday to Friday the box office is on the first floor. It is recommended that you reserve and pay for tickets through bank transfers.

Accessible Shows

Since 2018 Teatrão maintains a partnership with the Portuguese Sign Language Course at the Escola Superior da Educação de Coimbra. The majority of the company’s productions are interpreted by students and professionals of the course, usually on Saturdays. Shows can be organized to accommodate the necessities of organized groups.
