We have 2 set-up nights the week before the show, along with the Saturday morning and Sunday before the show.  We need as much help on these nights as possible with setting up the stage, putting scenery together or painting.  We also build some of our set ourselves and we need help with this in the weeks leading up to the show.  At the end of the week we need help to remove everything from the school to leave it as we found it.

You will be notified by e-mail as soon as possible after the auditions.  On some occasions it may be necessary to wait until the whole show has been cast prior to informing members if they have been successful.  You must then confirm your acceptance of the part to the secretary.

Audition dates will be given out once rehearsals have started.  It is necessary to attend 3 rehearsals prior to auditioning.  Audition parts will be handed out by our production team prior to the auditions.

Children’s theatre costumes will be provided by the individual.  Notification of costumes will be given by our producer and a costume night will be arranged in order for all costumes to be brought along.  Our adult company hires costumes from a professional costumier.  The cost of this is offset with our costume levy (see above).  On some occasions it may be necessary for members of the company to provide some costumes themselves.  We will endeavour to give as much notice of this as possible.

Company rehearsals take place on a Tuesday night at Linlithgow Rugby Club from 7.30-9.30.  Principal rehearsals take place on a Thursday night at Linlithgow Academy from 7.30-9.45 (9.30 for children’s theatre).  Our Sunday rehearsals start approximately 6 weeks prior to the show and take place in the Masonic Hall, Linlithgow from 2-5. If we are unable to book any of these venues we will endeavour to give as much notification of this change as possible.

What costs are involved?

All fees are set annually at our AGM.  For the adult company fees must be paid prior to auditioning for a part – if not auditioning by the end of June prior to the production.  Costume levy is decided by our Management Committee and must be paid in-full by the end of September prior to the production.  Children’s theatre fees should be paid as soon as possible after the commencement of rehearsals.

For the childrens company your child will need to prepare a short reading/passage from a book, a short song, unaccompanied, and our choreographer will take small groups in and teach them a short piece of movement.  For the adult company you need to prepare a short reading and an unaccompanied song.

For both our adult and childrens company please e-mail your name and, for children, their date of birth.  Your name will be added to the waiting list and further details will be sent advising of auditions nearer the time.

This well deserved award is due to the inspiration of our production teams, the leadership of the LAMP Committee, the enthusiasm of the many parents and LAMP helpers and mainly the talents of the youngsters on stage. The popularity of this group is evident in the numbers of children eager to join and all agree that rehearsals are fun as well as giving the youngsters a sound introduction to the world of the stage.  The success of LAMP Children’s Theatre is also due in no short part to the contribution of the various talented production teams over the years they have been in existence.  The support of the parents is also invaluable and greatly appreciated.  Helping in many ways - with costumes, set building, ticket sales, and during show week working front of house as well as backstage – all who are involved certainly enjoy themselves.

Formed in 1995, LAMP Children’s Theatre’s first show, The Wizard of Oz, was the start of a phenomenally successful list of shows including the Scottish premiere of Billy Elliot The Musical.  Now, 21 years after the first production of The Wizard of Oz, the children have once again performed a fabulously successful show, Seussical The Musical during April in Linlithgow Academy Theatre.  Aged 9 – 16, young people leaving Children’s Theatre then have the opportunity to join the adult company, and many have.  “Bitten by the bug” some youngsters have also gone on to perform at the Edinburgh Festival, taking part in Captivate Drama’s production – “Les Miserables”. 

It is easily seen why LAMP Children’s Theatre- the youngsters – the actors, singers and dancers; the hard working production team; the LAMP adults giving their support and the parents who are always ready to do what is needed – all deserve this award.




The 2016 LAMP production in October is "The Witches of Eastwick".

The story is based around three female protagonists, the 'Witches' Alexandra Spofford, Jane Smart, and Sukie Rougemont. Frustrated and bored by their mundane lives in the town of Eastwick, a shared longing and desire for "all manner of man in one man" comes to life in the form of a charismatic stranger, a devil-like character, Darryl Van Horne. Seducing each of the women in turn Darryl teaches them how to further expand the powers locked within, though their new unorthodox lifestyle scandalizes the town. As these powers become more sinister and events spiral out of control, the women come to realise that Darryl's influence is corrupting everyone he comes into contact with and resolve to use their new-found strength to exile him from their lives.
