Overview

Leamington Spa's Outstanding Live Theatre Company. The Loft Theatre Company has been producing live theatre in Leamington Spa since 1922. Professional standards are our goal as we work to bring variety and the very best in community-based theatre to Leamington Spa, to Warwickshire and to our wider audience beyond. The company has earned a strong reputation nationally for the professional quality of productions. It is run almost entirely by volunteers, many of whom have theatrical or academic drama qualifications and experience, who devote their talent, time and energy to the theatre simply because they find it fulfilling. Each year we produce around nine shows in the main 200 seat auditorium and a smaller number in the 50 seat Douglas Ford studio theatre. Our work covers the range of theatrical styles from classical to modern, tragedy to comedy, farce and musical theatre. Whether you like to be shocked, enlightened or simply entertained, you will find something for you here.

When visiting Leamington Spa be sure to check if the Loft Theatre has a production running. This amateur theatre produces plays to a very high standard. Many of their productions have been, in my opinion, up to the standard seen in the West.

I've been going for thirty years. They have an excellent repertoire, covering classics, contemporary plays, light entertainment and comedy. They get the cream of local acting talent and sometimes do plays with large casts that the pros can't afford to do. The volunteer foh staff...More
