The Railway Children

Monday, 11 February 2019

The Railway Children, by E. Nesbit
Youth Company Production
28th February – 2nd March 2019

Set in and around a country railway station at the turn of the twentieth century, the plight of the railway children grappling with their new environment is imaginatively brought to life for a modern audience while losing nothing of the original spirit of humour, adventure and the final triumph of good over evil.

A Murder Is Announced

Thurdsay, December 25, 2018

A Murder Is Announced by Agatha Christie, adapted by Leslie Darbon
24th January – 2nd February
Doors 7pm

Medway Little Theatre is pleased to welcome Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple to the stage in their next production, A Murder is Announced.

An announcement in the local paper states the time and place when a murder is to occur in Miss Blacklock's Victorian house. The victim is not one of the house's several occupants, but an unexpected and unknown visitor. A classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives and concealed identities follows. Luckily, Miss Marple is on hand to provide the final solution at no uncertain risk to herself.

Relatively Speaking

Tuesday, October 23, 2018

Relatively Speaking by Alan Ayckbourn
6th – 15th December 2018
Doors 7pm

When Greg becomes somewhat suspicious that he is not the only man in his girlfriend Ginny’s life. He wonders about Ginny's plan 'to visit her parents' and decides to follow her. Ginny is really going to see a considerably older lover, but only in order to break with him. Greg mistakes the ex-lover and his wife for Ginny's parents. Ginny's arrival further compounds an already wildly hilarious situation!

Gibraltar Drama Festival 2016

Sunday, April 3, 2016

Medway Little Theatre Youth Company returned from an exciting visit to participate in the Gibraltar Drama Festival with two lovely shiny trophies, new friends and a tan!

The group left on the Thursday 17th at 3am in the bitter cold, arrived at 11 am into warm sunshine. We dropped off our luggage at the Emile Hostel and headed out to Inces Hall to meet Tanya Santini of the cultural office for a whistle stop tour and a rehearsal on the stage.

Luke, Celia, Kairn and Derek went to work sorting out our set pieces (with thanks to Christian Santos from GAMPA for the loan of their set pieces!) and technical bits whilst Rosie and Kerrie got on with the rehearsal. We went to watch the evening’s performances, some great theatre from Bayside and Westside Drama group and Dramatis Personae before heading back for some well-deserved sleep! On Friday 18th , after a dress technical during the day, our team did a sterling job entertaining the audience at Inces Hall with ‘A Point of Law’, and received a positive adjudication from Paul Mills who commented that ‘Young actors played mature characters well’ and ‘crisp, efficient delivery of the story’.

On Saturday the team participated in a Drama workshop with Gibraltarian students facilitated by Julian Felice at the Bayside school on Saturday morning, then followed up with some sight seeing on a Rock Tour.

The Gala night saw Lana Ballantyne win Best Young Actress Award and Rosie Stannard winning Best Supporting Actress.

Set Design and Set Builders wanted!

Friday, October 16, 2015

If you can wield a screwdriver, a paintbrush or even make a good cup of tea please volunteer to help with our set building.

Each show needs one created and taken down again after – so we need a few hands to assist.

If you are interested in being part of the team that make this all possible then please get in touch.
