Artistic Team

        The Realistic Theatre Company of Edinburgh is a youth music theatre company dedicated to performing new and exciting music theatre work.  Over 60 local young people, ranging in age from 8 - 21 years old, have performed every year for the last 5 years at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, as well as at other times of the year.  Realistic holds drama workshops, charity concerts and has produced five highly successful original productions at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The Company  also outreaches its work to communities throughout Scotland.
          Unlike some Youth Theatre companies, we do not charge a fee to take part in the shows as we believe that exclusion by lack of money is wrong.  We believe this makes us unique in the area.  Nearly 60 young people are involved in Realistic, either acting, singing, as musicians or learning technical skills.There is no doubt that being part of the Company is contributing to the education and advancement in life for the young people. The Company operates an equal, multiracial opportunities programme. Realistic is now currently seeking funds and sponsorship partnerships so that the good work of the company can continue into the next century.
