A unique, theatrical phenomenon in the heart of Perthshire

Attracting over 100,000 people each year, Pitlochry Festival Theatre (PFT) is a unique, theatrical phenomenon in the heart of Perthshire.

Each Summer Season, we produce and perform 6 excellent shows, all of which are played in daily rotation. That means you can see a different show every day, two on Wednesdays and Saturdays, as well as Thursdays, from September – October!

PFT is famous for large scale productions, delivered to international standards, with multitudes of sumptuous costumes and exquisitely detailed sets that quite often get their own round of applause!

Our location plays its own starring role in the PFT experience. We sit right on the bank of the Tummel; the views of the river and the ‘Speckled Mountain’, Ben-y-Vrackie, are spectacular.

A trip to Pitlochry Festival Theatre makes a perfect day or night’s entertainment or as many of those who already attend know, a superb short break. Many of our patrons stay for 6 days and see 6 plays. Or see 3 plays in 2 days, plus walking, golfing, shopping…

There’s more. Every Christmas (late Nov to Dec) we produce and perform productions that we hope both surprise and delight audiences. Previous Christmas musicals have included White Christmas, Scrooge!, Miracle On 34th Street and Singin’ In The Rain.

And finally, we also have a year round programme of tours, talks, concerts, events, music and workshops.

From contemporary comedies to period drama, to musicals and concerts, tours and talks, there is certainly something to suit every taste.
