Welcome to Theatre Paradok’s website. We are so glad you have found us.
Theatre Paradok is a performing arts society. Our goal is to facilitate theatre that is experimental and innovative without being exclusive. We thrive off the challenging and exciting. We like theatre that’s engaging, energetic and immersive. Above all, we value enthusiasm, collaboration and pure joy. We are the only society in Edinburgh that allows practitioners to make the work they want, how they want. We’d love to have you!
There are plenty of ways to get involved. Whether you want to get into acting, directing, writing, costume design, set design, stage management or tech: we want to hear from you, and we have opportunities for you. Whether it is working on a show, or taking part in one of our courses. Just send us a message, follow us on social media using the buttons at the bottom, or sign up for our newsletter!
Usually, we put on multiple shows per year. At least one each semester, and one that we take to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. We take proposals from our members for all of our shows, which are then voted on by our members.
In semester 1, we are organising an Intro to Acting course and a Movement Course throughout the semester. Unfortunately, signups for these are now closed. Additionally, we have our big production of A Streetcar Named Desire at the end of the semester, but we are also looking for projects throughout the semester, so get in touch with your ideas! We are also offering our writers group sessions and open mic nights, making sure everyone has a way of getting involved.
Currently the best way to get involved, is to meet us during Welcome Week for one of our 5 incredible workshops, check out the events page for all the details, watch a recording of our Fringe show, or have a nice picnic with us on Sunday to relax after a hopefully busy week. You can find all theatre Welcome Week events here.
