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...
Breezeblock Park27th February - 4th March 2017
Although still to be confirmed NLT’s second production of the 2016/17 Season is destined to be Breezeblock Park by Willy Russell, to be directed by Vicki Hyde. Originally commissioned in 1975, Willy Russell’s Breezeblock Park is at once painfully funny and sharply moving. The play is set on a Liverpool housing estate at Christmas when a close-knit Liverpool family gather for the festivities. However, beneath the glitzy gift wrap, tinsel and fairy lights lie concealed jealousies, a secret and petty squabbles and the festivities slowly start to unravel! Also this play promises a great opportunity for budding young actors to have a chance to take to the stage in Nailsea. The play is both funny and moving and the roles we need to fill are a wonderful opportunity for young people wanting a chance to act. We need three people in the 17 to 27 age bracket, two male and one female. Those interested should contact Vicki on 07826 537397 Tickets for our second Show are not yet available but in due course can be ordered from the Box Office telephone 0777 298 1037, opening times Monday to Friday 09.00 - 17.00 and Saturday 09.00 - 12.00 noon.
