We are a theatre group located in Letchworth Garden City Hertfordshire. Founded in 1923, we perform at The Little Theatre at the Settlement adult education centre.
We have been entertaining with amateur theatre productions in Letchworth and North Herts for 96 years and are looking forward to our centenary in 2023.
We have a fully equipped Proscenium Arch with stage extension, scenery docks, Props storage, dressing rooms and excellent lighting and sound facilities. For productions we have our own ‘Little Theatre Little Bar’ and we can seat audiences of up to 130.
We currently stage three main productions a year in February, June and November. We also produce one act plays for the festival season in the spring and for our theatre club members in September. All auditions are open to non members. If you are cast, the subscription of £21 (£16 if you are over 60), is required, which includes membership of the Settlement and insurance for everything that we do.
Social events and workshops also occur throughout the year. An informal play reading, where you just turn up and read through a play, occurs on the first Wednesday of every month.
Rehearsals for shows are usually for two hours , up to three times a week. Monday 8pm, Wednesday 8pm and a slot on Sunday.
Leading up to productions, set building occurs at 10.15 on Sunday Morning for around two hours.
Everyone is welcome, whether your interest is acting, stage managing, producing, directing, sound production, lighting design, set and props construction, show design, rehearsal prompting, properties, costume and wardrobe, front of house, box office, running the bar, programme and poster design, website design, publicity, facilities and electrics maintenance; or even just coming to watch an excellent show with friends.
There is plenty of experienced help and advice to call upon within the players, so no previous experience needed, just lots of enthusiasm. Get in touch today by Contacting Us Now
