Welcome to Leitheatre

Thank you to everyone who came to see Blue Remembered Hills. We are now starting rehearsals for our Festival Fringe production of 'Stepping Out' by Richard Harris. Tickets are now on sale from the Fringe Box Office - Edinburgh Fringe

The play charts the lives of seven women and one man attempting to tap their troubles away at a weekly dancing class. Initially all thumbs and left feet, the group is just getting to grips with the basics when they are asked to take part in a charity gala. Over the course of several months we meet the group, and all of them have a story to tell. There’s troubled teacher Mavis, perfectionist Vera, mouthy Maxine, uptight Andy, bubbly Sylvia, shy Dorothy, eager Lynne, cheerful Rose, and, of course, Geoffrey. At the piano is the dour Mrs Fraser.

Leitheatre is an amateur theatre group based in Edinburgh. We usually produce three full length productions per year, including one in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. We also take part in the Scottish Community Drama Association (SCDA) One Act Play Festival. Our productions take place in the Church Hill Theatre, the Studio Theatre and Inverleith St Serf's Church Centre. We also produce a Burns Show in January to celebrate the birth of Scotland's Bard, Robert Burns. This show is performed for other organisations such as Golf Clubs, Care Homes and other social clubs. If you are interested in booking the Burns show, please get in touch via the 'Contact Us.' button above. 

On the Our History page, you will read how our roots are in Leith but we perform in venues and theatres all over Edinburgh. We are not connected to Leith Theatre, in Ferry Road.  You can find information about that organisation here Leith Theatre Trust .
