About the 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.

The company is a member of the Little Theatre Guild of Great Britain and a registered charity, receiving no regular funding from any external source and supporting itself through subscriptions and ticket sales. It is a company limited by guarantee; you can read the company’s formal Memorandum and Articles here.

The theatre has been at its current site since 1944, although the building dates from the 1960s when an earlier building was destroyed by fire. For further detail, read A Brief History of The Loft Theatre.

Anyone can come and see Loft shows. Generous discounts are available for concessions at most performances, but the best value is obtained by becoming a member. Members enjoy special discount privileges on tickets. Membership is open to everyone.

Participation is open to anyone with a contribution to make. There is a wealth of opportunity for talents of all kind. Casting is by audition and a warm welcome is extended to anyone who wishes to join the company to help in other aspects of our work – providing high quality theatre which is affordable by all.

And have a drink after the show...

At all evening performances, the theatre bar is open from 7pm and remains open after the curtain comes down. Audience members will find a warm and friendly welcome and will almost certainly discover members of the cast enjoying a drink after their work on stage.

We look forward to seeing you at the Loft soon.
