Festive Sing Along

3pm Sunday December 22, 2020 At our last Sunday Social before Christmas Member Gerard Johnson will be leading an afternoon of festive song in the foyer to welcome in the yuletide. We invite members and their friends to pop down to exercise their lungs and larynxes. We’re hoping to have some festive treats available in the bar and we hope to see as many of you as possible. A great chance to celebrate with friends old and new perhaps for […]

Introducing the SLT Visual Story

To ensure everyone feels comfortable when visiting our theatre, we’ve created an SLT Visual Story.

Our visual story includes photographs and descriptions which talk you through the spaces you will be visiting and what to expect from the different types of shows we put on, how ticketing works and what facilities you may use.

Membership Figures Update November 2019

Back in early September in our last Membership Update, we reported that there was a levelling off of numbers with paid up subscriptions. Well, we’re pleased to report that things are back on the up again after a good quarter. We had a good few shows with large casts, which attracted newbies as well as other members back into the fold, and that trend seems to be continuing. Maybe there is an upside to the evenings drawing in! It’s likely […]

Casting Announcement: Consent

Andy Webb announces his cast for Consent by Nina Raine, which is our second show in the new year. “Consent is about sex, rape, infidelity, betrayal, justice and revenge; it’s a terrific script with some wonderful combative dialogue. There was no shortage of actors prepared to take on its challenging themes, and as ever there was more acting talent auditioning than parts to share out. But I think we’ve arrived at a perfect blend of actors who can get the measure […]

Casting Announcement: Vampir

Creator and director Bryon Fear announces his cast for Vampir, a physical theatre piece which will be staged in October 2020. “Directors always say what a tough decision it was to choose their cast, and it was never so true for me this time round. Every actor who walked through the SLT doors brought something different and with a level of commitment that was humbling, particularly to such unusual audition process which involved lots of sweat, climbing over each other […]
