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.
