In case you didn't get the memo, our next production is now on sale.
The ever popular and well known 'The Importance of Being Earnest' by Oscar Wilde will grace the Sleaford Playhouse stage from Tuesday 6th September to Saturday 10th September 2016.
We were lucky enough to be asked to visit the Gravity FM studio for an interview about SLT and The Playhouse. On Tuesday 17th November, we sent our very own Mary Rudkin to the studio.
We have added a great selection of photos to our Facebook page from the rehearsals of 39 Steps. So if you can't wait to see the play and want a sneak peak pop over to facebook and have a look.
Some of you may be aware that we made a bid to the Lloyds Community Fund and the short listed applicants will be voted on by members of the public to determine if and indeed how much we might receive. This is now your opportunity to help by voting for us. There are various ways to vote from 9am on the 2nd September until the 10th of October:
Well, actually we have!
The National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) recently awarded Sleaford Little Theatre as winners of the 'Production Award for Best Pantomime in District 5' for our production of Aladdin in December 2013.
Although not so frequently performed or well-known as ‘An Inspector Calls’, this play, written in 1933 by J.B.Priestly, is a social commentary focussing on the attitudes of greed, dishonesty and criminality among the middle class residents of suburbia and their attempts to secrete them under a veneer of respectability.
SLT’s pantomime offering was Alan P Frayn’s version of “Aladdin” and my goodness what a slick and polished production they made of it.
SLT chose a play by Francis Durbridge for their Autumn production which proved to be a most fitting choice. Durbridge was a prolific and popular writer whose works included novels, television and radio plays and latterly plays for theatre. Many will recall listening to the adventures of Paul Temple on the radio.
This production was adapted for the stage from the popular Ealing comedy film of the same name but is now set in South Lincolnshire village in 1952, where a group of residents are endeavouring to purchase and operate their branch railway line which is to be axed.
The setting for this play is ‘Trudy’s Beauty Parlour’ in the small town of Chinquapin, Louisiana, U.S.A. and full marks must go to the designers and builders for creating such a realistic set which even featured running water to facilitate hair washing.
