Lung Ha Across Scotland

Are you interested in being part of Scotland’s award-winning theatre company for actors with a learning disability, but live too far away from Edinburgh? You now have a chance to join the Lung Ha Theatre Company ensemble online: Lung Ha Across Scotland.

Lung Ha Theatre Company (LHTC) is launching a new pilot programme of FREE weekly online drama workshops for people with learning disabilities who live in Scotland and outside the Edinburgh area. The programme will run throughout autumn 2021 and we have places for eight participants. If you answer YES to the questions below, then we would love to hear from you!

  • Are you aged 18 or over and identify as having a learning disability, or as learning disabled?
  • Do have an interest in drama and would like to learn acting skills?
  • Do you live in Scotland, but live too far away from Edinburgh to attend weekly sessions?
  • Do you have access to the internet and are able to use an online video platform, such as Zoom?

You do not need to have any previous drama experience to join Lung Ha Theatre Company. All we ask is that you have a real interest and commitment to joining, an interest in learning about theatre and acting skills and enjoy working with other people.

(Please note that Lung Ha Theatre Company intends to hold in-person auditions for actors who live within close travelling distance of Edinburgh when it is safe to do so. If you wish to be notified about future auditions, please email info@lungha.com)
