Behind the Scenes

The South London Theatre is one of the most friendly amateur/ repertory theatres in London. More than twenty shows a year says it all! We are currently not in our usual venue in West Norwood, but have been re housed in Stanley Halls, South Norwood, for at least the next couple of years. It’s an amazing historically interesting venue. Two excellent theatre spaces. However, we have a bit of a dilemma, many new comers who visit our site, are only […]

Security at the Old Fire Station

  Those of you based in West Norwood will have seen that the Old Fire Station is now currently being protected by Camelot Security Services. SLT decided to use Camelot’s services after an incident when the theatre was broken into last year. The break-in was discovered by Bryon Fear & Charlotte Benstead on the morning of December 1st, when Bryon realised he could not gain access to the building. They alerted the police immediately who responded swiftly and arrested the intruders within […]

Call for New Writing

No one doubts that SLT’s temporary move to the Stanley Halls is an exciting time of change. While those of us helping to run the company endeavour to offer the opportunities that the Old Fire Station gave us – not least, a varied programme of productions and social events – we appreciate that many members are keen to embrace the new. As we get used to our new home, SLT is launching an initiative to establish fertile ground for new […]

East

8pm, February 23-27 East is an elegy for the ‘energetic waste’ of youth. Set in the East End in the late 1960s – the London of Berkoff’s own adolescence – this verse play is at once a celebration and critique of the performance of masculinity. Les and Mike are perpetually on the hunt for a fight or a woman. Arrogant and amoral, they live for the spilling of bodily fluids. Dad simmers in a constant brew of suppressed rage and nostalgia […]

Oliver!

This Christmas, SLT brings Lionel Bart’s much loved musical to Stanley Halls. Dickens’ novel comes to life as we take audiences on a wild adventure through Victorian England, as Orphaned Oliver navigates London’s underworld of theft and violence, searching for a home, a family, and – most importantly – love. With spirited, timeless songs like ‘As Long as He Needs Me’, ‘Food Glorious Food’ and ‘Where is Love?’, Oliver! is a musical classic! Director: Lee Ridgeway Assistant Director: Kay George […]
