BREAKING NEWS…..PLEASE READ
After today’s announcements from the government, The Little Theatre will be postponing The Thrill Of Love until later in the year. We tried our best to make it happen but the concerns for public health now outweigh our passion to keep the theatre running. The welfare of our audiences, cast and crew is of greater importance.
This is a heartbreaking decision for all involved and we really hope our audience will return later in the year to see the production.
We will be contacting ticket holders from tomorrow to sort out refunds/exchanges. Please bare with us if it takes a little longer, we promise to get round everyone in due course.
We will keep you updated and we hope everyone stays safe and well in this uncertain time.
The health and well-being of our patrons, supporters, customers and members is of the utmost importance to us. Our next production The Thrill Of Love will be going ahead as planned, but we thought it necessary to let you know how we are tackling the current situation with COVID-19.
Please be reassured that our theatre has elevated their already high standards of hygiene, incorporating disinfecting procedures. We have increased accessibility and visibility of hand sanitiser and hand washing facilities for everyone and there will be visible notices around the theatre reminding our visitors to wash their hands and avoid too much contact. We have also taken the decision to close the bar throughout the production week, as this will reduce contact and increase hygiene. There will be bottles of water available. We will also pre heat the theatre to the right temperature and refrain from using the air conditioning.
We will continue to work closely with Public Health England to ensure we navigate these challenging circumstances with everyone’s health and wellbeing in mind.
We look forward to seeing you all at The Thrill Of Love and we thank you for your continued support of our community theatre.

A hostess in the West End ‘gentlemen’s clubs’, Ruth Ellis works hard, plays hard and dreams of a movie-star life. Yet in 1955, the self-styled ‘blonde bombshell’ is convicted of murder and becomes the last woman to be hanged in Great Britain.
Ruth’s crime is re-examined in the light of the society she lived in and the experiences that led to her shooting her lover. Through the eyes of film noir Detective Inspector Gale – and the haunting voice of Billie Holiday – The Thrill of Love explores the enigma of Ruth Ellis: a woman whose short but explosive life still resonates.
