Edinburgh People's Theatre (EPT) are well known for presenting a broad variety of productions ranging from straight drama through to the fun of the Christmas Pantomime. Our year is based around a schedule of up to seven productions (including the 2013 Festival Fringe which will be our 55th year of participation), so there's always plenty going on for people to join in with, whatever their level of interest and experience. Details of our next production are listed below.
Greetings from our President
My name is Irene Beaver and I am a Life Member and President of the club for the year 2012-2013.
One of the things I like about EPT is that we don't have 'stars'. You might be the lead in one play but in the next you might be helping with props. After all, where would the actors be without all the Technical Crew, Wardrobe or FoH? I'll tell you. They would be on a bare stage in the dark, with no costumes and no audience. In fact there would be no EPT.
There are plenty of us although we are always looking for more members, especially on the technical side. If you are interested in acting; working backstage; helping with the technical side; greeting our audiences front of house or all of the above then get in touch with us – visit the Join Us section of the site. Alternatively, you could come along and meet us at one of our regular open nights. So why not come and join us? We would be pleased to see you. Feel free to contact me if you would like to know anything more about the club.
EPT is lucky to have a loyal audience, with many regulars coming along to all our shows. If you don’t want to become a member but do want to be kept updated about our upcoming productions you can become a patron by filling out a simple form, just visit the Patrons section.
If you want any further information please feel free to contact me or any member of the committee – full details can be found in the Contact section. Please scroll down to find out about our next production.
