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. Restarts 10th January in the Rehearsal Room

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 25 November

The Jack Dash plus The Squad

Tickets: £4

It may be a while since they were in short pants but they still know how to bang out a tune. The Jack Dash, our ever-popular, extremely local rock band will be rocking the Studio again in the way that only they know how – i.e. with the aid of several pints of the Theatre Club’s real ale.
The Jack Dash’s very own special guests for the evening will be Guisborough’s six-piece folk-rock group THE SQUAD. Bring your toe-tapping shoes. Also, if all that wasn’t enough, there will be support from THE BASS PLAYERS DAUGHTER.


Saturday 2nd December


£7 (door)
Jon Strong has toured with Ry Cooder, Van Morrison, Robert Palmer, Talk Talk, Danny Thompson, Clannad, He has done numerous major festivals including Cambridge, Cropredy and San Bernardino Folk Festival.
“If this came out with the name Peter Gabriel on the cover you can bet it would be hailed as a
major artistic renaissance for a world class songwriter. If it came out with an unknown band
name and a picture of a bunch of distrait-looking youths from Bristol on the sleeve, it'd probably
win the Mercury Prize. Listening to music as good as this on an Own Label CD-R makes me want to weep with frustration at the sheer idiocy of the business we're in”.
(Tom Robinson BBC Radio 6).
