Studio Theatre

MIDDLESBROUGH Little Theatre Company has a space for the performing arts - The Studio Theatre.

 

The Studio is a rehearsal room and performance space which can be used by both MLT itself and other theatre companies, directors and performers.

Middlesbrough Little Theatre hopes The Studio will help support and encourage even more live theatre in the region.

 

For details of booking the Studio Theatre, please see our Room Booking page.

 

“The gig last night reminded me of why I do what I do. An attentive audience who is up for a laugh. It has re-affirmed my faith in performing. I've done three gigs in Boro now and all three have been ace. I therefore crown Boro as the best place to gig in the UK.” Johnny Campbell post on Facebook after his last gig in the Studio.

 

Singing for Pleasure.

Singing for Pleasure has been cancelled until futher notice

We are running a Group for those who want to sing without the pressure of concerts or shows. We’ll be trying a bit of everything: Showstoppers, Gospel, Folk, World, Rock and Pop.
Our singing adventures are on Wednesdays at 7.30pm in The Studio or Rehearsal Room. We cover a broad range of styles, as above and aim to please the majority of tastes. Above all, we just want to enjoy using our voices, and blending them with others.
These events are open to MLT/None MLT Members.
This is a Free Event, so please come along and have a go.

14 Nov - JOHNNY CAMPBELL plus THE SALS

Johnny Campbell
JOHNNY plays earthy northern folk music, including his own compositions, with the passion and energy of early punk bands. Harking back to an age when Folk musicians travelled to share songs, stories and tales from their land, Campbell has since 2013 plied his trade across over Europe, Scandinavia and faraway places like the Faroe Islands, and has been smothered with love and enthusiasm by people who really appreciate honest song writing and singing. Johnny is the genuine article. That is why he gets a regular gig at Toft House! Writing self-penned material and delving deep into Northern English folk song, Campbell's material and performance is authentically English. Or Northern English.

THE SALS comprise Darren Reay (Harmonium, Guitar & Vocals), Andy Jones (Double bass, Piano & vocals) and Timothy Oxnard (Guitar & vocals). The Sals are musical opium for a troubled soul, soothing songs that refresh and enchant. Expect a little eastern improvisation too, and a whole bunch of heartfelt goodness of honest music making. They play beautiful, melodic and reflective songs.

£8 (door)

21 Nov - NICK HALL & PETE DAVIES & LISA MARIE GLOVER

Lisa Marie Glover

NICK HALL is half of PLUMHALL and half of THE HALL BROTHERS and a third of this power trio.
PETE DAVIES is a well-known songwriter in these parts and regular at Toft House, since the early days. A naturalised Teessider (he was the original Beast of Bolsover but fled to Eston to avoid being hunted down), Pete rose to fame as the ever-dependable support act at Vin Garbutt’s Christmas concerts. His song writing skills have blossomed in his mature years since retirement.
LISA MARIE GLOVER is a delightful song writer from Leeds.
