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.

“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.

Sat 30 March


Johnny Campbell has a fast, ruthless, uncompromising sound which lends its influences from far and wide. Johnny is also a humorous storyteller and recalls stories of touring from twenty countries and counting where he's plied his trade. Embracing traditional music from Europe and sometimes frantic Bluegrass style picking, Johnny performs mostly self-penned inspiring songs of protest, migration and debauchery.
After 90 gigs in 2018 in the UK, Netherlands, Germany, France, Austria, Slovenia, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Finland, Norway and The Faroe Islands, Johnny just can’t wait to get back to the Boro and Toft House.

The Woven Project are a lo-fi, acoustic and experimental outfit with elements of a folk influence.

Frank and Eddie’s repertoire draws from the earlier years of the 20th Century covering many different vocal and instrumental styles that the guys have adapted for two acoustic guitars, from Irvine Berlin to Django Reinhardt, Ragtime to Bluegrass, Country Blues to Western Swing and Hillbilly Folk, novelty tunes and Eddie’s own songs and instrumental pieces. Deadly serious about music for sure they find it hard to be anything other but humorous and entertaining with their presentation.

Special guest: DAN WALKER. Talent and a love of good music clearly runs in the Walker family. Dan is a professional musician, guitar tutor and promoter who studied music to masters’ level at the University of West London.
