HELLO

Welcome to Hebden Bridge Little Theatre

Hebden Bridge Little Theatre was formed in 1924 and has been producing plays almost continuously ever since, in places as various as the Co-operative Hall, the Picture House, the Band Rooms on the park, and for a prolonged period (1937–1977) in the Ground Floor of the Trades Club.

This came to an end when we decided to create our own premises by converting a coach garage on the present Holme Street site – a seventy seat, ‘little theatre’ in the truest sense.

For more than a decade audiences warmed to its intimate atmosphere, but it eventually became so dilapidated we had to embark on a major fund-raising and building project, that culminated in the opening of the present 120 seat theatre in 1993.

The society’s logo, devised in the thirties, depicts art rising out of industry. The chimneys may have disappeared, but Hebden Bridge Little Theatre, in its latest, permanent home, is here to stay.

Because we are a small theatre doing five plays a year there are great opportunities to get actively involved. We are always on the look-out for new talent, on-stage and back-stage. Every production needs a director, set builders, stage manager, light and sound operatives, prompter, props and wardrobe, not to mention all the front of house staff.

We have open casting auditions for our plays, generally in the form of a read-through of the play. These are advertised in the local press, at the theatre, and in ‘Prompt’.

If you would like to get involved let us know, or better still, come along to a read-through. It’s a great way to get to know us!
