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 […]

Chorus of Disapproval – Casting Announcement

Lisa Thomas, director of Alan Ayckbourn’s A Chorus of Disapproval announces her cast: “I’m delighted to announce the cast for A Chorus of Disapproval, Alan Ayckbourn’s brilliant comedy about an amateur operatic society rehearsing for their production of The Beggar’s Opera. A seemingly shy newcomer, Guy Jones, is welcomed into the company fold and makes the most of all the opportunities that he is offered.” – Lisa Thomas Guy Jones – Adam Crook Dafydd ap Llewellyn – Jason Salmon Hannah Llewellyn – […]

The Old Fire Station Needs You. Pt 2 – April 2018

Many of you will have attended our Youth Show, His Dark Materials, during March and will have had a preview of our wonderful new theatre space. Hurrah! You’ll also have seen that much of the building remains unfinished and although next time you visit it shouldn’t look quite so incomplete; nevertheless because of budget limitations, we need to continue fundraising and much of the outstanding work needs to be done by us. The shortfall in funding needed to complete the […]
