About Us

When?

Edinburgh Music Theatre Company, or EMT, was formed in 1982, to perform large-scale musicals in major theatres. Our aim was to produce shows that none of the other companies in the capital would attempt, achieving the highest possible standard in performance, while appealing to as broad a range of audience as possible.

Who?

Whilst company members are all amateur, the shows are all professionally directed both dramatically and musically. Testament to this policy are our rave reviews, and the fact that several members of the company have moved onto the professional scene, performing on the West End stage, and internationally.

Where?

Historically, the Company has performed in many theatre venues, throughout Edinburgh. Over the last 10 years we have performed annually at the prestigious Kings Theatre. Our contribution to theatre in the Lothians has been, and hopefully will continue to be, significant.

What?

The company annually performs one principal large-scale musical in the spring of the year. Past productions have included West Side Story, Sweeney Todd, Fiddler on the Roof, Pirates of Penzance (Broadway version) and the World Premier of the Robert Louis Stevenson musical Teller of Tales. From time to time we stage Revues or small shows and have been invited to stage our productions in the excellent Adam Smith Theatre in Kirkcaldy.

Why?

We are one of the youngest musical theatre companies in Edinburgh, we do, of course, cater for a wide spectrum of ages – indeed, many members have been with the company since inception. In rehearsal, and on stage, we adopt a completely professional approach, while off-stage we are very sociable. Our members have the opportunity to contribute, whether on- or off-stage, to the success of a performance on one of the largest stages in Edinburgh. Our rehearsal period whilst intense leading up to the show is relatively short (5 months or less).
