Announcing the 2024 SLT season

20 Sep 23

Here is the line-up of the productions coming to SLT in 2024. This is our first raft of confirmed shows and takes us up to the end of July. Work to put everything together for these shows is underway and auditions for the early shows will be starting soon!


Where we have applied for show rights but they’re not yet confirmed, we’ve omitted the title for now and stated TBC. We’ll update the list as and when rights are approved. Our thanks go to all directors for their submissions, and to Lisa Thomas, who works tirelessly to obtain rights for us from publishers and agents.


Please contact directors if you’re interested in helping out backstage or assistant directing. Audition notices for each show will go up at least two weeks before the event.


All dates shown are week commencing (as you’ll need to be available for Sunday onwards to be involved!). Shows will run Tuesday – Saturday as usual, with the exception of the summer and Christmas family shows.
