We hope all our followers are keeping safe during this crisis.  

As a Club, we're all staying in touch through social media and with online video pub nights, play readings and rehearsal evenings. We'll update our show plans here as soon as we can.

Like many other organisations and clubs, we won't be having our regular face-to-face meetings for the immediate future. 

However, we are still planning for future plays. If you want to be kept in the loop, please do EMAIL us, so we can let you know what's happening and how you can get involved.

We take social distancing VERY seriously!


We are, of course, at the mercy both of the coronavirus and the government restrictions put in place to control it. Our future planning is naturally subject to factors outside our control.

We have to plan on the basis that we will all return to something like 'normal life' at some point and currrently we are holding online rehearsals with a view to staging Mary Stuart on 22 to 25 July. We do recognise that this date is looking unlikely when viewed in conjunction with the Covid-19 Recovery Strategy. We will, of course, keep you updated on social media and on this website about any changes to these plans.

Beyond Mary Stuart, we had planned to stage  Terry Pratchett: Murder in Ankh-Morpork on 18 to 21 November (with a casting read-through on 27 July). Again, we don't know how life will be working at the end of July, and our plans for the November production will be decided on the basis of that end-July position. There will be a video meeting on 27 July to decide the plan. More news here as it happens.

If you want to become involved, do email us so we can keep you in the loop.


The Covid-19 lockdown means that the Studio Theatre Club is having to meet, and rehearse, online -- and also that we don't get to perform for you at the Unicorn Theatre in Abingdon.

So - while we, and you, are all obliged to stay at home, we thought we'd record some well-known Shakespeare soliloquies so we can still virtually meet up :-).

See what we've been getting up to in lockdown! You can find our mini videos HERE.

The Studio Theatre Club is a very friendly amateur drama club based in Oxford. We enjoy staging a wide range of plays and we want our audiences to see the best shows possible.

We also meet socially outside rehearsals - for informal parties, meals, pub nights, girls' nights, lads' nights, sitting around the TV watching DVDs, cinema & theatre visits and other stuff.

We rehearse on Monday and Thursday evenings (19:30 til 21:00ish) at the Blackbird Leys Community Centre. Feel free to email first to check we'll be there. 

COVID-19 - Please note - we have been forced to take on the current government advice, and we won't be holding our regular meetings for the immediate future. We will update this web page as soon as anything changes. Feel free to email us to check on current planning.

Feel free to just turn up and chat to people. Once a play's been cast and is well underway, there may be fewer opportunities to be actively involved in the show, but you'll still be very welcome to come along and socialise.  There's always another play in planning, and you'll have the chance to hear more about it that way.

If you do decide to give us a go, don't forget we'll be asking you to pay your Club Subscription - £30. This helps towards our overheads, including rehearsal/meeting space, insurance - and this web site.
