Lung Ha Theatre Company proudly making fabulous theatre.
Our work is long-term with a big impact for learning-disabled adults in Edinburgh and across Scotland. We rely on a generous network of individuals, friends, and partners to empower us to make magical theatre which platforms marginalised voices – could you be one of our supporters?
The next 5 years will see Lung Ha Theatre Company deliver an ambitious and exciting Artistic Plan which will see us grow, expand our audiences and offer an exceptional range of creative opportunities for our learning-disabled actors.
There are many ways you can become part of the Lung Ha Theatre Company family and support us to achieve our ambitions.
We are hugely grateful for any support you can give us – as a registered charity we rely on the support of individuals and organisations to continue our work.

Learning-disabled adults ages 18+ can audition to join the company. No previous acting experience is necessary, just a good attitude and a passion for theatre. Auditions for new company members are held annually, usually in the spring. If you would like to join Lung Ha Theatre Company, please fill in the below form stating that you would like to join the Company in the message box, and you will be added to the list. We will then contact you prior to the auditions with more information.
At the heart of our work is the fantastic Volunteer Support Team. Our volunteers support and encourage actors to work to the best of their abilities, while participating fully in workshops and rehearsals (including warm up exercises, movement and improvisations). There are sometimes opportunities for volunteers to participate in performances and provide extra support backstage. Our volunteers do not provide personal care. Experience of working with people who have a learning disability would be an advantage but is by no means essential. We welcome interest from potential new volunteers all year round but normally recruit and induct new volunteers once or twice a year. The recruitment process involves an informal interview and taking part in a workshop or rehearsal. If you would like to find out more about volunteering, please fill in the below form stating that you would like to join the support team in the message box. All volunteers are required to have PVG membership for doing regulated work with protected adults. We support our volunteers to apply for membership if they do not already have it, or for a scheme record update if they do. This is completely free.
