What We Do
Our performances are just the beginning!
When is a theatre more than a theatre?
When it’s a way of life! For over 70 years, we’ve been Highland Perthshire’s artistic heart and soul, sitting perched on the edge of the River Tummel and looking out to Ben-y-Vrackie, the spectacular ‘Speckled Mountain’.
Now attracting over 100,000 visitors each year, we’re not just a venue. We’re famous for producing large-scale plays and musicals that delight theatregoers of all ages. International-standard performances featuring award winning artists, writers and directors, and outstanding set and costume designs all combine to bring audiences to their feet.
Create your own festival
An evening or afternoon attending a show at Pitlochry Festival Theatre is a special event. But why stop there? Our summer seasons are renowned, a series of six quite different shows played in rotation, so that you can take in a new show each day – and two on Wednesdays and Saturdays! It makes for a wonderful holiday opportunity, a mini festival of theatre interspersed with sightseeing in the spectacular surrounding countryside (not to mention the other delights of Pitlochry, such as walking, shopping, fishing, golf, dining…).
Autumnal colours, festive fun
After the bustle of summer, autumn is time to take in the magical colours that Perthshire is well known for. Our year-round programme of tours, workshops, concerts, talks and other events continues, and culminates in our hugely popular festive musical in November and December – previous audience favourites include White Christmas, Scrooge!, Miracle On 34th Street and Singin’ In The Rain.
New year, new performance space!
2022 sees the introduction of our new Studio space, and the opportunity to showcase innovative works from up and coming playwrights in an intimate setting. It’s a long-awaited and sure to be much loved addition to our event spaces.
We love our theatrical home – if you’ve not visited yet, drop by and say hello, and you’ll see why.
