Eden Court audiences will be invited to step into a world of comedy, musicals and captivating entertainment with a string of spectacular new shows announced by the Inverness venue.
The new programme boasts dozens of cultural highlights in drama, dance, music, opera and comedy, bringing a thrilling range of acclaimed talent to the Highlands.
From West End hits including Sister Act, Pride and Prejudice* (*Sort Of) and The Mousetrap to dynamic new productions like National Theatre of Scotland’s Dracula: Mina’s Reckoning – Inverness audiences will have an abundance of choice for a great night out at the theatre.
The Stamping Ground – the 2022 co-production between Eden Court and Raw Material Arts – will also make a welcome return to the venue in May, giving Inverness fans another chance to see the successful show as part of its UK tour.
The venue will also continue to be a stop on the circuit for some of the UK’s biggest stand-up acts, including Stewart Lee, Frankie Boyle, Susie McCabe, Josie Long and Tim Vine.

Families also have a lot to look forward to, with Dinosaur World Live, David Walliams’ Demon Dentist and smash-hit circus musical CIRQUE: The Greatest Show arriving at Eden Court soon.
There’s an array of dynamic new productions from Scotland’s national companies, with Scottish Ballet’s A Streetcar Named Desire, Scottish Opera’s Bizet’s Carmen and National Theatre of Scotland’s exciting new takes on Kidnapped and Dracula: Mina’s Reckoning.

The next six months feature musicals, drama, classic plays, new-writing, murder mysteries, horror, circus, opera, ballet, contemporary dance, stand-up comedy, children’s shows, talks, traditional music, orchestral music and musical tributes.
“This spring and summer programme illustrates once again the commitment of the Eden Court team to bring work of the highest quality and diversity to the Highlands.
“We look forward to welcoming tens of thousands of people through the doors to enjoy what’s on offer.”
