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 five productions (including the 2014 Festival Fringe which was our 57th 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
Hello. I’m Anne Mackenzie and I’m delighted to be President of Edinburgh People’s Theatre for the year 2014 – 2015.
EPT has a rich history from its inception in 1943, and an excellent reputation in Edinburgh. We’re proud to be the longest performing theatre group at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and this year (2014) sees our 50th pantomime at the Church Hill Theatre, and there were others performed elsewhere before this one.
When I joined EPT in 2006, I was immediately aware that here was a really friendly, welcoming group of people; I was impressed that EPT productions were taken very seriously in terms of the professionalism of the members involved, the club was committed to producing shows of the highest quality possible; and that the team work involved was paramount to achieving the former.
We’re successful because of our members and their talent and commitment to the club. We’re a diverse bunch, we have young members and older members and lots of folk in-between, but we all work together to produce high quality theatre and we have a lot of fun doing it. Every member of EPT, whatever they do, is fundamental to making a production work.
