About
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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I lived in Leamington for a long time and loved coming to The Loft. We moved away and really missed it. Thankfully we now live nearer again and have been to several Loft productions since moving back. A lot of other theatres seem to mainly have tribute acts on, but the Loft has an excellent mix to suit everyone. I mainly like to watch classic plays and there's something that we are eager to see multiple times a year. Lots of effort put into all the productions and well worth a visit if there's something you fancy as it is very reasonably priced.

Tonight saw a rendition of Around the Horn by a travelling troupe. The Loft provides excellent semi professional entertainment of exceptional quality. Smallish comfortable theatre. Good seating, excellent bar and interval snacks. Administration efficient and the whole place welcoming. Close to station and parking. Better than Stratford and better value. A good night out.

The Loft is a super little theatre run by volunteers and supporters of the arts. The volunteers are charming and run a small bar with tea and coffee on offer also. My daughter was acting in Dangerous Liaisons which was extremely entertaining and the dedication of these amateur dramatics is commendable.

One of the thrilling things about being mesmerized by excellence in the theatre is the total and immersive experience that elevates the mind and prods the soul. 
Leamington's Loft Theatre's production of "The Hangman" was such a production. Needless to say, we tend to categorize theatres and their work: The RSC should be excellent every time (it is not). West End Theatre, as well as Broadway's productions,  should be world-class. However, having seen a couple of hundred of them, I find commercial work 'hit or miss'. 

This small local rep company, when all is considered, should not have been so undeniably superb. However, what is clear from this production is that one was watching actors at the apex of their game. Sure, it helps to be working on a play by the brilliant, irreverent Martin McDonagh (whose "Pillowman" on Broadway was definitive). It helps that "Hangman" was directed by the gifted and visionary Tom O'Conner. It also helps that the Loft assembled what is arguably their very best artists: the inimitable Jeremy Heynes, the comedic and versatile Phil Reynolds (himself, an actor of a hundred or so credits) and the uber-funny Gus MacDonald, whose priceless cameo was worth the price of admission alone. However, to single out a performer would be trite. The strength of "Hangman", which I saw on its final performance, was down to the collaboration of a company whose status as one of the very best in the Midlands is confirmed. 

It will be tough to better this, however, I am enthused and excited about seeing the forthcoming "Les Liaisons Dangeruses", to be directed by Sue Moore (an actress of towering ability in her own right). For now, however, even though I saw this play nearly three weeks ago, somehow, I cannot forget it. I never shall.

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.
