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.

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.

Sessions taken by Helen Speed & Steve McNichol.





All events 7pm (doors) 7.30pm (start)

Saturday 17 November


Pete Morton is a dynamic and compelling performer and folk singer-songwriter with a wealth of great songs and an interesting take on world events and social injustice.  His songs have been described as an unruly mix of humour, politics, love and social comment wrapping their way around the folk tradition and all delivered with feeling and warmth. Songs like ‘Another Train’ and ‘When we sing together’ have become folk club standards and his performances are a joy which is why we have invited him back for his fourth gig at Toft House.
“Not only impressive but a revelation” – The Guardian
“A writer who manages to express everything, from the highly personal to the truly international” – R2 magazine
Avril McCall is predominantly from a folk/traditional background but with an ear for all genres of music. She is a lover of words and the sentiment of a song which she aspires to convey in her delivery. Dennis Firman is a blues player extraordinaire, being a member of two-piece band Easy Street. They team up tonight to combine both of their styles of music.

£7 door.
