Little Theatre Company

Live theatre in the heart of Burton upon Trent

COVID-19 Postponement Update

After much deliberation, we have taken the decision (not lightly) to postpone all 2020 LTC productions until 2021.

We feel this is the positive thing to do for the sake of the comfort, security and safety of our audiences, members and the Brewhouse staff and stewards upon whom we rely so heavily.

Please, rest assured, that any existing ticket bookings for RENT will be offered a full refund or a credit towards a future LTC production.

We strongly believe that live theatre should be a shared experience and, in the current climate, we have come to the conclusion that this is not realistically possible for the foreseeable future. We hope you will understand and we look forward to welcoming you once again in 2021. There is a little theatre in all of us. Our revised programme of events for next year is:-

  • March 9th to 13th 2021 – The 39 Steps
  • April 6th to 10th 2021 – RENT
  • June 22nd to 26th 2021 – Private Peaceful (by Michael Morpurgo and Simon Reade)
  • November 23rd to 27th 2021 – The Wind in the Willows

Please stay safe and well. We will meet again.

Our next production:

The 39 Steps by Patrick Barlow, John Buchan

Next Production

The 39 Steps

by Patrick Barlow, John Buchan

Little Theatre Company are delighted to present Alfred Hitchcock's classic spy thriller, The 39 Steps, brilliantly and hilariously recreated for the stage in the smash hit Olivier award winning comedy.

Featuring a handful of actors playing no fewer than 139 roles. Gasp in astonishment at the breathtaking adventures of our dashing hero, Richard Hannay, as he grapples with dastardly murderers, double-crossing secret agents and devastatingly beautiful women. Whoop with delight as he narrowly escapes from a succession of hair-raising escapades. And hoot with laughter as he and his fellow characters deliver some of the funniest one-liners you'll hear on stage all year.

Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo & Simon Reade

Next Production

Private Peaceful

by Michael Morpurgo & Simon Reade

Divided by love. United by war.

“I’ve had nearly eighteen years of yesterdays and tomorrows, and tonight I must remember as many of them as I can. Tonight, more than any other night of my life, I want to feel alive!”

Private Peaceful relives the life of Private Tommo Peaceful, a young First World War soldier awaiting the firing squad at dawn. During the night, he looks back at his short but joyful past: his exciting first days at school; the accident in the forest that killed his father; his adventures with Molly, the love of his life; and the battles and injustices of war that brought him to the front line.
