Lofty Heights

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 (Charity No 1134863), receiving no regular funding from any external source and supporting itself through subscriptions and ticket sales.

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.

Anyone can come and see Loft shows.  Generous discounts are available for concession tickets and season tickets.  You do not have to be a member of the Loft to attend or be involved in shows.

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.

interesting background you've provided about this structure

i'm puzzled over the entrance. is this the back, or is there a walkway along the water?
Bill Phillips: I think it is the back

It sounds like an intimate venue which I like very much. You feel more involved with the performance rather than in a much larger venue.
Bill Phillips: I quite agree. Our little theatre in Droiters has that intimacy too

Showing this in b&w allows us to study the forms without the added complication of colour.
Bill Phillips: Richard Trim likes studying forms
It has wet feet, I suppose.
Bill Phillips: I don't even know if it had feet
Would love attend a performance in the 50 seat Douglas Ford studio theatre, Bill. It would have a nice intimate feel, almost like being in someone's living room.
Bill Phillips: I know what you mean. Our local theatre in Droitwich sits about 140 and has a lovely atmosphere
A very worthy endeavour!
Bill Phillips: I would think so Tom
It might well be an interetsing place to go and see one of their productions, there are several amateur companies who present shows at Loughborough Town Hall and the quality of their shows is amazing, there is a heck of hidden talent about these days.
Bill Phillips: There is a lot of good amateur theatre. Our local theatre has put on some splendid, and varied, productions
there is a lot to look at in this picture besides the theater Bill... it's great in b&w....petersmile
Bill Phillips: Thanks Peter.
