Allegro was formed in 1977 from the then Barclay Bruntsfield Drama Group. The intention of the company was to bring lesser known or rarely performed musicals to the attention of audiences for amateur theatre in Edinburgh.

The company has come a long way in that time, building up a reputation for producing highly polished performances with high standards of acting, singing and choreography.

However, as a consequence of performing these lesser known shows and the high costs involved in producing stage musicals, following our 2001 production Allegro found itself in the position of being unable to fund another full production.

Our concert production in 2004 raised sufficient funds to enable us to restart the company and present a full scale musical production of the same high standard as before.

Since then we've brought the likes of Copacabana, The Wedding Singer, Return to the Forbidden Planet and Our House to the Edinburgh scene to great acclaim, and in 2015 we're performing the East of Scotland Amateur Premiere of Loserville!

If you'd like to get involved with Allegro please email info@allegromusical.co.uk or contact us via our Facebook page www.facebook.com/allegromusical.

Auditions and rehearsals for Loserville will start in May/June 2015, with show week at the end of October 2015.
