All the world's a stage ...

Whilst we have been unable to bring you our scheduled June production we have been meeting virtually every week since lockdown began, reading plays and poems. We have also recorded - from multi locations (including Texas!) - Shakespeare's much loved 'seven ages of man' speech from As you like it. It has been compiled and edited by our own Genevieve Allen and is now on our new YouTube Channel for you to enjoy!

Wishing all our lovely audiences well and looking forward to seeing you again at The Little Theatre, once the situation allows.

Thank you to our lovely audiences

Thank you to our lovely audiences who came to Dead Ringer last week - just before the dramatic changes to movement policy regarding the virus.

Meanwhile, Guildonians wish you and your families very good health.

Dead Ringer - our next show is in rehearsal

We are now in rehearsal for our Spring production - Dead Ringer, by Charles Ross. The play takes place in the Prime Minister's Study in the 1980s. Imagine the consternation when the PM drops dead the night before the election! The party need his charisma to win - could they bring in a 'dead ringer' to impersonate him until after the election? What if the ringer likes playing the role and won't let go? Then what if he finds out that the PM was murdered?! This initially amusing fantasy turns into a tangled web of intrigue, so put the dates in your diaries now!

March 11 - 14 at 8pm plus Saturday matinee at 2.30pm

Happy New Year to our audiences!

We would like to thank you for your support over the past year, in which we performed Lord Arthur Savile's Crime, Jane Eyre, Perfect Wedding and our Christmas show featuring The Peer and the Peri.

Our line up for 2020 begins with popular drama Dead Ringer, by Charles Ross, on March 11 - 14, and our summer play will be Oliver Goldsmith's classic She Stoops to Conquer on June 10-13. This will be our entry into the 2020 Havering Drama Festival of full length plays. So, if you had a diary in your Christmas Stocking, perhaps you would like to fill in these dates!

We look forward to weloming you to The Little Theatre in 2020. Meantime, here's wishing you all a very Happy New Year.
