Next show now in rehearsal!

Our next play will be Alan Ayckbourn's zany, imaginative comedy Improbable Fiction. A group of six aspiring writers meet on a winter's night to discuss their work ... or lack of it. What unfolds next  is a wild and whacky fantasy of the story which might unfold if they were to collaborate – hold on to your hats!  Fast and furious, Improbable Fiction is Guildonian’s entry into the Havering Drama Festival.

June 6-9 (Wednesday to Saturday) 8pm nightly plus 2.30pm Saturday matinee

The Happiest Days of Your Life is coming!

No, the title is not a grammatical error - The Happiest Days of Your Life by John Dighton, is our main play this season. Many of our audience will be familiar with the story as it was famously made as a film in 1950 starring Margaret Rutherford and Alastair Sim, with a young Joyce Grenfell - in several respects it was a precursor of the more anarchic St. Trinian's films.

Set after World War II, this delightful farce is about what happens when a boys' school receives the news that they are to billet another school … which turns out to be all female … and events are complicated by the arrival of the parents. A charming, whimsical show to perk up a November evening. Performances are from Wednesday 8 November to Saturday 11 November at 8pm nightly, with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.

Tickets are £8 on the door and can be reserved by calling 01708 782118

It's panto time - come early!

A chance to see us performing Emma Stacey's short potted panto 'The Frog Prince' on Saturday 23 September at Brentwood Theatre! This is our entry in the 2017 Brentwood Catholic Theatre Club Festival and it would be great to have some of our regular Harold Wood audience with us. The festival has been running for several decades, starting life in Ilford, then Romford and has been held at the Brentwood Theatre since 2009. This year there are 14 different performances from Wednesday to Saturday by a variety of local groups - the full timetable can be viewed here.  Guildonians are performing at approximately 3.50pm, but the matinee begins at 2pm and a £10 ticket admits you to all the afternoon's performances. We do hope that some of you are able to come and enjoy a varied afternoon's entertainment, and in true panto spirit, hissing and booing the villain, and cheering us on!
