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.

JOHNNY CAMPBELL with support from The Alice Charmers and Cult Figure
JOHNNY CAMPBELL, the Huddersfield-based celtic folk/punk song writer and wandering minstrel returns for his second Building Bridges gig. Johnny loved his last visit to The Studio and he wrote some fine words about the experience that we have been delighted to reproduce on MLT’s website ever since! Over the past year, he has toured extensively around Scandinavia and Europe as well as taking time to play at Middlesbrough’s Westgarth Club, singing his own brand of folk songs at punk rock gigs. Of course, we couldn’t wait to invite him back.

David Rovics and Joe Solo - "A concert for Peter Smith"
This is a special concert in memory of Peter Smith who died in early January this year.
There will also be tickets available for sale at the Johnny Campbell gig on 25th March.
Peter Smith was a much loved local socialist and peace campaigner. He was well known and respected at the various Universities where he lectured over the years, including Teesside University and the Open University. He was also a versatile and energetic sportsman right up to his final days, particularly on the squash court and golf course, and an enthusiastic supporter of rugby and football. Peter also loved live music and although his main passion was jazz he was also very enthusiastic about the socialist folk singers that we tried to bring to perform in Teesside.
