Welcome to Nailsea Little Theatre

Nailsea Theatre Club was formed in 1963 by a few dedicated enthusiasts. Since then it has had a continuous programme of successful productions and currently presents three plays a year. Some years ago the club became a registered charity and as a consequence was able to obtain a National Lottery grant to extend the premises - an old Methodist Chapel which is used for rehearsals, scenery building, social events and productions. The new extensions were opened by our past president, Tom Williams, in June 1996. Since the start of the 2011 season the premises at Union Street have become known as Nailsea Little Theatre.



Our doors are open

July 1963, a warm sunny Sunday afternoon, the place - Westway, Nailsea, and two young men are talking over their garden walls and taking a rest from cutting the grass. Only a year before, they had moved to the village - one from London and the other from Newcastle. This conversation wasn't much different from many the two had enjoyed over the past 12 months until one magic word was mentioned - THEATRE. This became common ground for both of them and a basis for much eager discussion in the months ahead.

The Odd Couple (Female Version)

16th - 21st October 2017

NLT’s first Show of the 2017/2018 Season is the Odd Couple (Female Version) by Neil Simon, directed by Graham Tyson. Florence Unger and Olive Madison take over the personae in Neil Simon’s hilarious female version of The Odd Couple. Substituted for the poker party that begins the original, the girls are invited over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit. The Pidgeon sisters are replaced by the Constanzuela brothers but the pace and comic genius of the original is preserved. Tickets for our first Show are now available and can be ordered from the Box Office telephone 0777 298 1037, opening times Monday to Friday 09.00 - 17.00 and Saturday 09.00 - 12.00 noon.
