Arkle Theatre Company is an amateur theatre company based in Edinburgh.

We are not a club, and have no members! We hold (fairly) open auditions for each show and cast the very best performers. Our actors past and present include many who have been professionally trained or have accumulated vast experience of acting. We are also proud that we have cast members who have gone on to train as professional actors after being cast in one of our shows.

Typically we produce 3 shows each year, with one towards the end of April each year and two in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

If you are interested in getting involved in our shows, whether as an actor, backstage, front of house or anything else please contact us via the contact page. We will also be delighted to take ticket reservations or availability enquiries!
