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.

JON STRONG BAND + Pete Davies

THE JON STRONG BAND played Toft House in December 2017 and they provided a mind-blowing evening for all in attendance. The incredible musicianship, masterful song writing skills, passionate performance and perfect sound left the audience wanting more. The only reasonable thing to do was to book them once again at the earliest opportunity.
PETE DAVIES was an integral part of that gig last year and has never failed to please in all his appearances at Toft House. His intelligent and heart felt songs are bound to kick off the evening in fine style.

MATT ABBOTT + MATT NICHOLSON + JULIE EASLEY & KEV HOWARD

"The Two Little Ducks" tour

Matt Abbott was volunteering at the Calais Jungle refugee camp when his native Wakefield voted 66% Leave. Why did so many working-class communities like his support Brexit so strongly? How can the UK ignore a humanitarian crisis just 22 miles from Dover? And does anything ever actually change for people like Maria?

This is a powerful, personal and political spoken word show from one of UK poetry’s rising stars. He channels the human side of politics to look at national identity, preconceptions, class and anti-establishment anger. Poetic flair and storytelling, with a unique insight into the summer that changed everything.

£8 (adv) £10 (door)

Tickets can be reserved by contacting  our admin address or purchased through Eventbrite (Eventbrite booking opens in July)

 

Saturday 20 October

SAM SLATCHERa song writer and lovely bloke from Durham, was one of the reasons that the WERBENIUK gig, back in March, was such a memorable event.  His songs are highly melodic, full of warmth and beautifully played.
