The independent reviewer said about our last show (Pieces of Chekhov):

“…filled with comical farce and absurdly exuberant characters”

“…just what the doctor ordered” “a light, fun and easy evening”

“you’d be mad to miss it!”

Interested in joining?

The director has now fully cast our production of Sense & Sensibility. It be difficult to become heavily involved at this stage, but you are welcome to come along, watch a rehearsal, chat to people and see what you think of us. 

We do have plans for the show after S&S - there are some brief details HERE.

How do we cast our shows? We don't have formal auditions; plays are cast on the basis of an informal round-the-table casting readthrough.

We meet at the Blackbird Leys Community Centre. Monday and Thursday evenings - drop us a message first to check we'll be there!

We are all now clear of formal Covid restrictions, but we do have a simple protocol to help to avoid spreading germs unnecessarily:


'LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST'

Like everyone else, we spent 2021 at the mercy both of the coronavirus and the government restrictions put in place to control it.  

We'd been rehearsing Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost.  When we started, we had planned to stage it 'normally' but those plans have had to be abandoned as restrictions tightened, or as relaxations were delayed. Eventually, we decided to video as much as we could. In a back garden. Competing with the weather and the environment!

There are links to the footage we shot HERE.


A BIT ABOUT US

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.  We are still maintaining some elements of Covid alertness, we need you to EMAIL us first if you are thinking of coming along. 

Once a play's been cast and is well underway, there may be fewer opportunities to be actively involved in the show, but you're still be very welcome to come along and see what you think of us.  There's always another play in planning, and you'll have the chance to hear more about it that way. Feel free to email us to check on current planning.

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.
