This is similar to any light show usually done with fountains or the like. This is however in a woodland setting which is a nice twist. Its quite crowded however this is excellent for kids. I recommend booking well in advance and go for the later shows so that the crowds thin towards closing time.

Friday night - the "Privates" definitely were "on Parade"!!
Saturday afternoon - Trewlany of the Wells
Saturday evening - My Fair Lady

Lovely theatre! I'd be surprised if there was a bad seat in the house thanks to reasonable tiering. However, could do with a touch more leg room.

Staff friendly and welcoming and audiences engaged.

The company, 18 in total, are incredibly versatile performing diverse roles in six different plays this summer. This weekend was the end of season but the talented troupe were showing no signs of exhaustion or boredom with their parts.
Professional and polished. Thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Favourite part: comparing the imaginative use of sets and wondering how and where they store it all! Such attention to detail.

Watching the end of season speeches/awards was a treat too.

Least favourite part: crossing the shoogly suspension bridge. Although the crossing at the dam has stairs/is darker it's a much pleasanter route, IMO.

We stayed in Killiecrankie just outside of Pitlochry for a week in September. We saw two shows at the theatre: See How They Run; and My Fair Lady. Both were excellent and thoroughly enjoyable. The actors, although not all perhaps up to West End standards are quite amazing and multi-talented. They also perform in more than one production, sometimes on the same day if there is a matinee. I would heartily recommend a visit if you are in Pitlochry and try to combine with a meal at the theatre restaurant which is also excellent. Booking is a must though.

We have visited this theatre several times now and each time I am so impressed with the actors. This time we saw My Fair Lady and it was fantastic. The actors sing, dance, play musical instruments and act! And all done with such enthusiasm. What a great evening out. I could not recommend enough!
