Studio Theatre

MIDDLESBROUGH Little Theatre Company has launched a new space for the performing arts - The Studio Theatre.


The Studio is a rehearsal room and performance space which can be used by both MLT itself and other theatre companies, directors and performers.

Middlesbrough Little Theatre hopes The Studio will help support and encourage even more live theatre in the region.

Dying as an Art by David Spark

Building Bridges presents:

Pipe Riot and Kev Howard/Tim Coyte and Dougie Verrill and Phil Cox

Friday 20th February

PIPE RIOT - Man of the cloth, Rev Chris Ormston, plays beautiful, lilting tunes on Northumbrian pipes while Ettrick Scott, author of “23 Manly Poems for Men, Women and Children”, gets things off his chest in a frankly outrageous, rhyming sort of way. PIPE RIOT describe themselves as “everybody’s favourite rhyming gobshite/piping vicar combo”.

On the same bill we have the north east’s finest didgeridoo player KEV HOWARD. Always seeking new ways to push the boundaries of his instrument, Kev is now working with guitarist TIM COYTE so we are in for a real treat. Also appearing is Teesside’s coolest cabbie DOUGIE VERRILL who makes his third “Building Bridges” appearance. And if all that wasn’t enough our special guest is Darlington singer songwriter PHIL COX. Phil covers many different styles - Contemporary Folk, Indie & Rock. You can hear many influences and he has been compared somewhere between Bob Dylan & Frank Turner. Phil has a new album ready to be released in 2015.

Bar opens at 6pm. Gig starts at 7.30pm. £5 on door (advance tickets only £2 from Dr Phil's Real Ale House)
