Entertainment at Adam Smith Theatre

In a time of so much uncertainty, we have made the difficult but important decision to postpone our theatre programme in all venues until spring 2021. We made this decision with heavy hearts but resolute in our commitment to reopen in 2021 safe, sound and strong.

The drama, music, laughter and tears of theatre are a huge part of who we are and why our customers come to us. However, while our doors remain closed, we are still saying let us entertain you! We have a stageful of virtual entertainment online – find out more here.

Since lockdown began in March, our Box Office team has been undertaking an enormous customer engagement programme which has seen us contact thousands of ticket-holders. As we move to reschedule the programme further, we would ask that you please bear with us while we get in touch by the dates of shows. If you are a customer whose event had already been rescheduled to before the end of the year we will be contacting you again to discuss options including credits, donations and refunds.

We can’t say enough how much we genuinely appreciate your continued support as we work through this difficult time together.

The latest information on the status of shows and events can be found here.

About Adam Smith Theatre

Located in Kirkcaldy's town centre, the Adam Smith Theatre is a popular venue in a traditional setting, well-loved for its high-quality shows, full-scale cinema and long history as the heart of the local arts scene. 

Opened in 1899 as a memorial to social philosopher Adam Smith - now widely regarded as the father of modern economics -.this stunning theatre has an impressive facade and overlooks the Memorial Gardens and another OnFife venue, Kirkcaldy Galleries.

Enjoy a fantastically diverse and popular programme of events at this 475-seat venue, including comedy, dance, drama, music, and children's theatre. The theatre also supports and hosts local arts organisations, such as Kirkcaldy Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Societies, as well as classes and workshops.  The popular Adam Smith pantomime is much loved by all ages and a highlight of the calendar, offering a magical festive introduction to theatre for our younger audience members.

When not in use for live performances, the main auditorium becomes a cinema, showing recently released blockbusters and classic films as well as hosting mini film festivals.

The Café Bar serves a selection of soup, sandwiches and cakes as well as our own blend of coffee, Lang Spoon Coffee, with all profits from sales reinvested into ONFife, which is a charity. The cafe bar is open: Mon-Sat 10am-3pm, Fri and Sat 6pm-11pm and from one hour before performances.
