About Arkle

Arkle Theatre Company is a community 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 in each show. 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!

We have registered with Amazon Smile for the festive season to try and raise funds to bring our rearranged shows to you next year. If you are shopping on Amazon for gifts this year please do so through our Amazon Smile link, and .5% of the cost of eligible purchases will be donated direct to Arkle Theatre Company. Just click the link or the banner below, sign in to your Amazon account and shop online as you normally would.
