Studio Theatre

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

“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.

Here at Toft House we continue to build bridges with new and exciting musical talent that has not performed in the area before. Originally from Cambridgeshire, Somerset-based song writer Steve Pledger is definitely one not to be missed!

Steve Pledger has an enviable reputation as a talented and dynamic performer. BBC Introducing have called his music “beautiful, authentic, unblemished and wonderful”. His songs are sensitive, honest, touching, thought-provoking and politically astute. He is an artist with his finger on the political pulse and the sensitivity and creativity to write meaningful and moving songs.

Look at what some of the critics have been saying about his most recent album “Striking Matches in the Wind”.

"Authentically expressed in a voice with genuine appeal... a direct route to the heart." (R2 Magazine, 4****)
"It’s absolutely wonderful from gritty start to resigned end. Despite these 12 songs' unflinching elements of truth and honesty, ‘Striking Matches in the Wind’ is still imbued with an air of possibility and positivity among the hardships. The faith that love, community and friendship will see us all right in the end. Pledger has crafted a set of truly wonderful songs here; poetic, knowing, clever, thoughtful and melodic; the world would be a far better place with more of this stuff." (8/10 - Americana-UK)
"Rarely does an artist resonate with me on such a personal level. 'Striking Matches In The Wind' is an intense, emotional experience of the most inspired kind. A Frank Turner for the common man, perhaps!" (Andy Barnes, Sonic Bandwagon)

"The songs are so well-defined, emotional, evocative, with a clarity of purpose that remains consistent throughout. Steve Pledger has emerged as a songwriter of real talent and whilst it's a crowded marketplace, he has a light shine above his head that should make him easy to pick out." (Neil King, FATEA)
"An album that I think will resonate with many out there. Songwriting at the highest level, delivered by a man who understands his craft and voice. A wonderful album!" (Gary Hazlehurst, The Folk Show)

(Of the song, ' Friends & Fathers') "An achingly sad and beautiful song. Every song on the album is a little gem." (Roger Williams, Trent Sound)
