Sunderland Lions Community Theatre

About the company

We are proud and grateful that the Sunderland Lions Community Theatre is now in our 6th season of outstanding musical productions.​​ The Sunderland Lions Community Theatre (SLCT), which currently showcases youth from ages 9 to 18, began with a retirement ‘dream’ and a proposal to the Sunderland Lions Club by Deborah De Jong in October of 2014. By January of 2015 preparations were well underway for our first production of Annie Jr. in November of 2015. 

Following two and a half months of rehearsing up to 3 times a week, our productions take place over the course of 2 weeks in mid to late November each year at the Sunderland Town Hall and have included Annie Jr. (2015), Beauty and the Beast Jr. (2016), Anne of Green Gables (2017), Mary Poppins Jr. (2018) and most recently, The Sound of Music Jr. (2019). 

Appreciation and support of our high calibre productions are expressed by our community with avid interest and sell-out performances as our amazing casts share their wonderful talents against the backdrop of elaborate sets to the outstanding accompaniment of live music. With the committed endeavours of SCLT Production Teams, many volunteers in combination with the support of the Sunderland Lions Club, the Sunderland Lions Community Theatre provides enriching opportunities for the development and growth of the ‘performing arts’ for our town of Sunderland and the surrounding area.
