SLT in the Community

Update on Spring 2021 Production Submissions

New submissions deadline: 21 February 2021 We’ve received a number of submissions for spring 2021 which we’re in the process of considering. Thanks to all of you who’ve submitted so far. Currently we still can’t be certain of what 2021 will bring in the way of restrictions which will determine the way we rehearse and stage our shows.

Happy Christmas

Hello everyone, I just wanted to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and thank all our members, volunteers, performers, makers, builders and organisers for everything they’ve done this year. It’s been a difficult one in so many ways, and it’s so sad for us to be dark at what is usually such a joyous time of the year. But we should also remember the good things that we managed to achieve against all the odds. […]

It’s with a heavy heart we close our Theatre doors once more, as London is placed in Tier 3. As difficult as this is, we understand the need to play our part in keeping our community safe.

We hope we’ve managed to bring some Christmas Cheer in an otherwise bleak year.  We’ve decided to move […]

Grimm Tales – The Director’s Preview

Jo Boniface introduces our Christmas show, Grimm Tales What drew you to directing this play?  I love the darkness of the original Grimm Tales. Fairy Tales should be a bit dark and twisted as well as being fun. The best stories are the ones that keep you guessing! I wanted something to be fun to rehearse and fun to watch. And something familiar in these odd times. Your ensemble cast plays a multitude of roles – can you tell us […]
