Welcome to Nailsea Little Theatre

Nailsea Theatre Club was formed in 1963 by a few dedicated enthusiasts. Since then it has had a continuous programme of successful productions and currently presents three plays a year. Some years ago the club became a registered charity and as a consequence was able to obtain a National Lottery grant to extend the premises - an old Methodist Chapel which is used for rehearsals, scenery building, social events and productions. The new extensions were opened by our past president, Tom Williams, in June 1996. Since the start of the 2011 season the premises at Union Street have become known as Nailsea Little Theatre.



Our doors are open

July 1963, a warm sunny Sunday afternoon, the place - Westway, Nailsea, and two young men are talking over their garden walls and taking a rest from cutting the grass. Only a year before, they had moved to the village - one from London and the other from Newcastle. This conversation wasn't much different from many the two had enjoyed over the past 12 months until one magic word was mentioned - THEATRE. This became common ground for both of them and a basis for much eager discussion in the months ahead.


This Seasons Productions...

You and Amateur Girl

5th - 10th February 2018

NLT’s February Show is being directed by Vicki Hyde and for the director's insight into the production please see the "What's On" page. The plays will be staged simply with black curtains and a minimalist set one of which will be a short play called “You” by Mark Wilson (recently released for non-professional production) which centres on a woman recalling memories of a significant (and life changing) decision she made as a young adult. The remainder of the evening comprises a performance of “Amateur Girl” by Amanda Whittington relating the life of Julie an auxiliary nurse, working long hours for a low wage in a Nottingham hospital. She cares for the elderly and feels her own life is passing her by but clubbing with the girls breaks the routine. However, Julie longs for some real excitement and a bit of spare cash. This promises to be a great evening of theatre and tickets for the Show are now on sale with details on the "Ticket Availability" page. As usual they can be purchased from the Box Office. For the Box Office telephone 0777 298 1037, opening times Monday to Friday 09.00 - 17.00 and Saturday 09.00 - 12.00 noon. Full details of our Season can be found on the "What's On" page and finally for all non Box Office enquiries about NLT please also call 0777 298 1037.
