The Stevenage Lytton Players consist of a number of major sections covering different areas of activities.  Members can take part in any or all of these.  Details are given below.

Music
The Music Section aims to present two major musicals a year, often at the Stevenage 'Gordon Craig Theatre, supplemented by concerts and shows at our very own 'Lytton Theatre' at The Sishes in Stevenage.  Principal parts in our productions are always auditioned, but chorus parts usually only require a voice test to establish range.

Recent productions have included: Annie; Cabaret; Follies; South Pacific, Jesus Christ Superstar and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.

Rehearsal times can vary with the Production, but are typically Monday and Wednesday evenings.

Drama
The Drama Section traditionally presents two plays a year in our own theatre, and has built a reputation of producing high quality entertainment, enhanced by excellent sets, courtesy of our innovative technical department who regularly rise to the challenge of complex requirements. Rehearsals are held on Tuesdays and Fridays, and there are weekly Tuesday drama meetings and workshops organised between productions as well as informal in-house entertainments.

We have linked with schools to maximise their opportunities for students to see live theatre and to produce plays in the national curriculum when possible and appropriate. These have included plays by Shakespeare and Oscar Wilde. Please see the list of previous productions elsewhere on this site.

Lytton Youth Theatre
Our young members between the ages of 8 to 18 years meet every Sunday (Thursday for Advanced Group) for sessions covering all aspects of drama, theatre craft and production.  They are encouraged to take part in their own shows as well as being able to audition for parts in our regular productions.
