Play Selection Group

We now have our plays for 2018 decided, so we are looking for new members for our play selection group. MLT members are invited to consider helping with this crucial part of our work.

The Group have a brief to choose four plays for a season: three for performance in the theatre and one suitable for production in the Toft House Studio Theatre. The plays chosen should cover a variety of genres and are likely to appeal to a wide range of the public.

Members will normally serve for a period of two years. By this practice the group has, over time, been regularly refreshed with new ideas. Members need to have experience in, or enthusiasm for the theatre, both on and off stage.

If you wish to become part of this team and feel able to make a contribution to the work please contact
