Formed in 2015, at the root theatre is a theatre company working across West Lothian with children, young people and adults. We want to create opportunities for local people to access creative, affordable and social activities in their local area. We believe in amplifying and empower the voices of different communities, people and places through theatre, music and film.

We run popular weekly drama workshops for children, young people and adults throughout West Lothian. Our weekly workshops aim to build confidence, develop social skills and enable participants to embrace their creativity. Alongside our weekly drama workshops, we run a series of outreach project, educational programmes with schools and holiday workshops.

Our Vision

  • To empower children, young people and adults through participatory arts.

  • To nurture and support young artists at the early stages of their career.

  • To collaborate with groups, organisations and artists to widen access to the arts in West Lothian.

Our Mission

Our mission is to create and facilitate positive opportunities for children, young people and adults living in West Lothian through theatre, music and film.
