Welcome to Compton Little Theatre
Established in 1982
Welcome to Compton Little Theatre, based in Compton Village, Surrey. We are a friendly, family based group with high standards in all aspects of our very professional productions. We were established in 1982 by a group of enthusiastic actors, many of whom are still involved in some shape or form.
We aim for three productions a year, a musical or panto in January, a Summer play and a comedy dinner/drama in the Autumn.
We are always looking for new talent in any area; acting, directing, costumes, make-up, back stage crew, front of house. So take a look around and contact us
A Collaboration with Watts Gallery- Freshwater by Virginia Woolf
As part of the Watts bicentenary celebrations, Compton Little Theatre will be collaborating with Watts Gallery to perform a play reading of the comedy Freshwater by Virginia Woolf. This will be in costume and held in Watts Gallery on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th March at 7.30pm each evening. The play is a skit on the lives of GF Watts, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Julia Margaret Cameron and her husband who are waiting for their coffins to be delivered before departing to India, a newly-married Ellen Terry, and a fictitious Mr Craig whom Ellen meets on the beach and plans to run off with. It is based on the Isle of Wight where both Watts and Tennyson had homes, and features a cameo appearance by Queen Victoria! The cast is made up of some long standing members of Compton Little Theatre. Andy Smith, Sue Leach, David Ford, Helen Turner, Colin Walkinshaw, Steven Webb, Jane Bryant and Margaret Davies. Directed by Mike Hough and Produced by Jane Turner.
Tickets are £15 each, £12.50 concessions for Friends and Patrons at Watts Gallery, available from Watts Gallery on www.wattsgallery.org.uk or phoning 01483 813593. Seating is limited and it is essential to book in advance.

CLT's Summer Production 2017
Our expected summer production has had to be cancelled due to a clash with a professional touring company who are performing the same play in our area in June. Therefore we have been unable to secure the necessary licences. With that in mind, the committee have decided not to try and rush through another production which may not meet our normal high standards, and we will next be performing between 5th - 7th October 2017 for our annual dinner drama. If you would like to be on our mailing list to receive notification of future events, please contact us with your e-mail address or postal address. Thank you for your support.
