Foyer Gets New Artwork

The makeover of the Old Fire Station continues with new artwork going up in the Foyer on two walls. The first piece to go up last Monday, 24 May, was the 1:1 scale image of horses charging out of the Fire Station c.1900 pulling behind it the ‘fire escape’ used to rescue people from tall, burning buildings. The artwork sits on the wall opposite the entrance so visitors will get a real sense of what the building looked like as […]

Toad of Toad Hall – Casting Announcement

Tom Melly, director of the much-loved classic Toad of Toad Hall announces his cast: “Well, it was an almost impossible task selecting a final cast from such an enthusiastic and talented turnout, and if it had come down to those two attributes alone, I don’t think I could ever have made a final choice. However, I wanted a good mix of both established members and newcomers, as well as a nice mix of ages, temperaments, and sexes, and I couldn’t be happier […]

The Misanthrope – Casting Announcement

Naomi Liddle, director of the Molière classic The Misanthrope announces her cast: “This will be my second SLT foray into Molière, after The Hypochondriac way back in 2013, and I’m raring to get started again on the silly rhymes and witty backbiting (and that’s just the rehearsals). I feel spoiled to have amassed a cast of experienced old hands and brand new talent and am really looking forward to working with them all on this funny, satirical, misanthropic comedy of manners. I […]

No Exit – Casting Announcement

Guy Jones, director of Jean-Paul Sartre’s No Exit (Huis Clos) announces his cast: “This show is intense, character-driven and depends on a very specific dynamic being created between the three lead characters, so casting it was never going to be easy. We had such talent turn up at auditions, then put the best through a rigorous callback, in a fittingly stuffy and claustrophobic room and after a lot of infernal, tortuous angst and deliberation, I’m absolutely thrilled to be able to announce […]
