MIDDLESBROUGH Little Theatre Company has a 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.
For details of booking the Studio Theatre, please see our Room Booking page.
“The gig last night reminded me of why I do what I do. An attentive audience who is up for a laugh. It has re-affirmed my faith in performing. I've done three gigs in Boro now and all three have been ace. I therefore crown Boro as the best place to gig in the UK.” Johnny Campbell post on Facebook after his last gig in the Studio.
Singing for Pleasure.
We are running a Group for those who want to sing without the pressure of concerts or shows. We’ll be trying a bit of everything: Showstoppers, Gospel, Folk, World, Rock and Pop.
Our singing adventures are on Wednesdays at 7.30pm in The Studio. We cover a broad range of styles, as above and aim to please the majority of tastes. Above all, we just want to enjoy using our voices, and blending them with others.
These events are open to MLT/None MLT Members.
This is a Free Event, so please come along and have a go.
Sessions taken by Helen Speed & Steve McNichol.

The “Joe Duo” plays the songs that Joe & Rebekah have performed together on Joe’s many albums.
The is the second in the series of “We Shall Overcome” gigs in The Studio for 2016.
Joe Solo is a musician, writer, poet, activist, broadcaster and washing machine engineer from Scarborough. His musical odyssey began in 1987 fronting a bash-em-out band at school, and has seen him play seven countries either as lynchpin of pop-punk upstarts Lithium Joe or hammering out his unique brand of Folk, Punk and Blues in his own right.
On top of releasing fourteen albums since 2004, Solo has written books and had them written about him; runs a research project on the Hull Pals Battalions in the First World War which he updates daily online; has worked with underprivileged children to help them write their lives in song; and still found time to open for the likes of Chris Wood, Attila the Stockbroker, Otis Gibbs, Robb Johnson, Edgar Broughton, TV Smith, Paul Simmonds, Justin Sullivan, Emily Portman, Pete Wylie, and The Blockheads; whilst his songs have been played by both John Peel on Radio One and Mike Harding on Radio Two.
In late 2014 he began fronting The Joe Solo Show, a weekly broadcast on Radio Scarborough from 10pm on a Monday night. The shows quickly gained some notoriety for not only their genre-hopping journeys through a century of recorded music, but for Solo’s commentary on current affairs which held nothing back.
In May 2015 Joe helped create WE SHALL OVERCOME, a movement pushing for a positive response to the poverty and hardship inflicted on ordinary people by the government’s austerity program. The first event took place over the weekend of October 2/3/4 2015 and comprised 250 gigs in 123 towns across 8 countries on 3 continents raising an estimated £125,000 in cash, food, clothing and bedding for those hardest hit. WSO scooped the People’s Choice gong at the annual Yorkshire Grassroots Music Awards on 16th October 2015, and on the back of his efforts The Morning Star named Solo ‘Human Being of the Year’.
REBEKAH FINDLAY is a folk singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist & artist based in North Yorkshire.
Her repertoire of music includes self-penned & traditional songs & tunes plus carefully selected covers in the folk and acoustic style. Lead member of her band, The Rebekah Findlay Trio, she has released two fabulous albums “Northern Skies” and “Improvising Around the Sun”, the latter being awarded 5 stars in R2 magazine who said: "It is, quite simply, magnificent, placing Findlay amongst the most impressive singer-songwriters orbiting the nebulous sphere of ‘contemporary folk’...".
