Entertainment at Adam Smith Theatre
When we made the decision to postpone last year, we did so fully expecting the uncertainty about indoor performances to have ended by spring. However, as this pandemic has shown us many times, there are factors that we can’t control. This is why we are planning for September but reviewing this again in June in line with Scottish Government guidance and its impact on capacity.
There is still lots going ON! For our Summer programme, alongside ShineOn Digital, we will be working with Fife Council, Fife Sports & Leisure and Fife Coast and Countryside to deliver a fun packed package of activities and experiences. More details coming soon.
Our Autumn Season focus from September will be ‘local’ – with a planned local return, by locals, for locals and with locals – and we are going to be working closely with all our amateur companies, who have been hit so badly during the pandemic, to try to achieve this.
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.

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.
