Plays
are our Business

Welcome to our new Website

After 13 years, the company that designed and managed our old website told us it had to be replaced at a cost of nearly £4,000.  This unexpected expenditure was not acceptable to our Treasurer, so he has built this new website using Wix, with no set up fee and significantly lower annual costs.   Our previous supplier were very helpful in getting our web and email addresses moved over on 12th January 2024.

We hope you like this new look and find it easy to navigate - please explore all the pages via the menu above.  All the details for forthcoming productions are now in one place on the Home page, with links to TicketSource for online booking.  The newly styled History pages have details of all past Shows by decade, with photos to scroll through under most of the Shows from 2020 onwards.  Photos from earlier Shows are on the new Gallery page.  Links to Facebook, where all our latest news is posted, can be found in the header and footer of each page.

Latest Forthcoming Production
The Actress by Peter Quilter
2nd - 8th June 2024

Connie Walker will be directing The Actress, a funny and poignant comedy dramatising the events backstage as a colourful, complicated actress makes her farewell performance. Drama and comedy collide as old acquaintances say their goodbyes, declare their love, roar with laughter, spit insults, grab a final embrace, and renew old battles.

 

The opening Sunday matinee will begin at 2:30pm, doors open at 1:45pm, and the following  week's performances at 7:45pm with the Theatre opening at 7:00pm. Parking at the Theatre is limited and priority will be given to cast and crew. Vehicles blocked in will not be able to be moved until well after the performance finishes, so if you need to make a quick getaway please park elsewhere!

All seats are unreserved, priced at £12. Tickets for this Show are now available and can be ordered via TicketSource (booking fee of 50p payable) using one of the buttons below or at the top of the page.

Nu Works Australia
4th and 5th July 2024

A first for NLT, we are pleased to announce that the award-winning Australian Theatre Company, NUWORKS, are to make their debut visit to Nailsea Little Theatre as part of their 2024 UK Tour, presenting two uniquely different but equally fascinating shows, over two nights.

 

They are delighted we are having them, in fact they approached us, having seen our website and being inspired by our rich 60-year history, which they thought a proud achievement for such a tiny theatre in a small town in North Somerset.


THE SHOEMAKER OF HAVANA 

Thursday 4th and Friday 5th July at 7:45pm.

TREASURE ISLAND 

Friday 5th July at 6:00pm.

UK2024 Flier TI NAILSEA.jpeg

The Shoemaker of Havana is an absorbing drama told with compelling theatrically…


The principal players here are Fidel Castro and Che, John and Robert Kennedy, Nikita Khruschev, Alina Castro Fernandez and Barbara Walters. And then there’s Lisa Howard, the virtually invisible protagonist so pivotal to the story. There’s a huge sweep of history here…over 60 years distilled into under two hours traffic on the stage.   It’s an epic tale but the heroes are little people, the shoemaker Alvaro and his devoted wife Eva.

The classic tale of Treasure and treachery as Jim Hawkins sets sail in the Hispaniola. 

Unrivalled in literature with songs by Mark Howard. Faithful to the novel and appropriate viewing for 10 years old and above.
