2019 Panto
Dec 2019
Booked for the family again and was not disappointed with this year's Panto, Sleeping Beauty with Anne Hegerty of the Chase, a right nasty piece of work she was as Carabosse,
Philip Green of BGT fame as the Jester,
Not the biggest Theatre in the North East but every seat has a good view,
Well done to all,
alan

A Classic of its time
May 2019
I have to say to this type of theatre must be supported to keep enriching the lives of the local and wider community. It is a little outside of Middlesbrough central but worth a visit if nothing else than to meet the people who work to bring character to the place. Not the most beautiful to look at but full of warming spirit.

This is one of Middlesbrough little gems. The staff are helpful and the theatre is spotless. Snake and drinks are very resnable and they always put on a lot of traveling shows as long as some of the best amateurs too. Alway love visiting

Pantomime fun!

The Little Theatre now renamed Middlesbrough Theatre is a great little venue. Just unfortunate since the refurb the huge sign outside reads "MT Middlesbrough Theatre"!

This year's Dick Whittington panto was fantastic, we really enjoyed it. The sets and costumes were superb....infact everything was - the jokes, the characters, the banter, choreography. Hadn't seen a panto for years but we've realised that it's a great thing to go to between Xmas and New Year and it's walking distance to my mum's so we should, and will, go more often. Highly recommended!

Little but big

Originally named The Little Theatre.
What it lacks in capacity, it more than makes up for in atmosphere and comfort. Lovely place to see a show or play

Great venue
May 2018 • Friends
Staff very friendly and helpful. We had one person in a wheel chair in our party & they provided wheel blocks and ensured they were comfortable/secure before leaving us. Two of us sat upstairs in the stalls and the usher was excellent. He kept us entertained and engaged with everyone showing them to their seats. The theatre is very well decorated and the seats all have a good view of the stage. The sound was excellent and the toilets had easy access & were very clean. A great night with good parking facilitates.
