Welcome to Limelight Performers
The new local theatre group in Suffolk.
Welcome to Limelight Performers! We are an amateur musical theatre group based in Ipswich, Suffolk. We produce up to 6 high quality productions throughout the year, across a mix of different age groups (9+), performing in various wonderful local venues, and are always aiming to make theatre accessible to as many people as possible. To do this, we keep our ticket prices and membership fees as low as we can - and hold open auditions for all productions which anyone can sign up for. We create a variety of opportunities year round, and hope you'll join us to see what we do or have your chance to be 'in the limelight' too!

With the continuing circumstances and restrictions around Covid-19, and the latest roadmap details recently revealed, we've made the tough call to cancel our planned production of A Grand Night for Singing this summer. Taking into consideration the length of time it takes to rehearse, and the costs involved - we just can't put the show on at the moment. We're hoping to be able to still do the show at some point, but have taken it off our schedule for now, with the hope that the rest of our productions might be able to go ahead as per our latest revision of dates (see below).
Miscast Musicals | 18th September 2021
Legally Blonde Jr | 19th-21st November 2021
The Limelight Ensemble | 29th January 2022
The Wedding Singer | Summer 2022 (Details TBC)
We're working on also creating some different opportunities, and will be adding lots more to this schedule - but of course with things constantly changing we have to work to restrictions at the time so will update as soon as there's more information.
There's some more details across our website (see below), and we already have registration open for auditions for a couple of these shows. You can also join us as a 'Friend' for just £5 a year to be the first to hear about updates and new opportunities, and gain access to a range of benefits (with more being added soon!)
Thank you so much for your continued support and we can't wait to get back on stage and see you all in person as soon as we can.
