Middlesbrough Youth Theatre are looking for new leaders to deliver workshops on a Saturday. We are a voluntary group who meet with our students on a Saturday morning 10.30 till 12.30. If you have experience in any of the three disciplines in performing arts and could spare 2 hours on a Saturday morning we would be very grateful. We would also consider students who are working towards teaching qualifications as this would be a good chance to work with students who are passionate about performing arts. Please email if you are interested. Thank you!

Auditions for Suburb of Babylon

The first MLT production next year is 'Suburb of Babylon', a play in three inter-linking parts by Hugh Leonard and directed by Julia Armstrong. They include 'A Time of Wolves and Tigers' with the awkward attempts of an alcoholic to persuade his wife to return, 'Nothing Personal' - a rather sinister slice of political drama and 'The Last of the Mohicans' - an hilarious farce about attempted adultery.

The production will take place in the Studio in Toft House (Please note that will not be performed in Middlesbrough Theatre) from 25-30 January 2016 with rehearsals starting in late November.

All parts are in 30s/40s and will require Irish accents as they plays are set in Dublin.
A Time of Wolves - Jumbo - late 40s, half-drunk
Nothing Personal - Betty - 30s but seems older
Pat - 30s, working-class, self-educated (male)
Phil - 40s - gregarious, well-meaning
The Last of the Mohicans - Dom - early middle age, having an affair
Finbar - early middle age, nervous
Grace - 30s. 90% panther, but 'you can't take the girl out of convent school'
Ita - early middle ages. Forthright, but nice

Seamus - 30s/40s. Angry and jealous


Audition dates
There will be a reading of the play in the upstairs Meeting Room in Toft House (the white building next to Middlesbrough Theatre) on Tuesday 6th October at 7pm, with auditions on Friday 9th October from 7pm. These will also be in Toft House. Please meet in the bar for this.
