Who we are - what we do!

We present plays, musical performances and pantomimes for the people of Otley and Wharfedale at Otley Civic Centre four times a year, and hold numerous social events for our members and patrons to enjoy. Please have a look round this web site to find out what we're currently up to! If you would like to know more about OLT, our shows, membership, or would like to receive our quarterly e-mail newsletter, please get in touch via the address given on the Contact OLT page. We hope we have something to entertain you!

About OLT...
(for more info see our Archive pages!))

Otley Little Theatre Club was formed in 1939 and ever since has been providing theatrical entertainment to the people of Otley and beyond. In the early days we were one of several dramatic societies in the town, and concentrated on ‘straight’ plays, but in recent years our Pantomimes and Musicals have become famous. Several of our members have gone on to professional acting careers (for example Bea Kelley, now a regular on 'That Peter Kaye Thing'). And in between productions we have an extensive programme of parties, play readings, treasure hunts, quizzes and special Patrons’ Evenings. Of course, we need audiences to make it all worthwhile! Why not come along, sit back and watch the rest of us make foo... sorry, provide first-class entertainment!

Become a Patron...

For £12.00 a year (£10.00 for the over-60s), you can join our expanding band of Patrons - entitling you to admission to three productions, a reduced rate for the April Show, a monthly newsletter and invitations to all our social events, including our famous post-production bashes. Or if you don’t fancy that sort of commitment, just turn up at any of the shows overleaf - we’ll be glad to see you!

...or even an actor!

Are you an actor? A singer? A dancer? Have you any other skills at all? Because whatever your interests and abilities, OLT will be pleased to see you! Inside this leaflet you can see the productions we’re putting on this year, and they need variously to be edited, copied, produced, cast, paid for, designed, choreographed, learned, directed, rehearsed, painted, set, costumed, advertised, acted, sung, danced, stage managed, lit, sounded, prompted, ushered, fed, watered, dismantled and drunk the health of!
