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
The next production is our pantomime 'Mother Goose'. The performance dates are Thursday 12th to Saturday 14th January 2017. Put the dates in your diary! Never to late to help out behind scenes in a supporting role, we would be more than happy to hear from you. Please contact us. Please find a copy of the rehearsal schedule here.
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 8pm each evening. Auditions will be held on Sunday 22nd January at 7pm in Compton Village Hall and anyone interested in taking part, either performing or helping with the production, is very welcome to attend. 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 Ceylon, 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!
Tickets are £15 each, £12.50 concessions for Friends and Volunteers 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.
