What our HOME would give us:

  • An exclusive rehearsal space providing essential privacy for artists to explore and invent in a safe and creative environment
  • Laying down stage mark ups on the floor to allow greater accuracy during rehearsals
  • Props and furniture can be kept in the room where they are needed so that rehearsals are more thorough
  • A workshop to make props and set
  • Costume fittings can take place alongside rehearsals
  • Costumes can be stored and maintained on-site, and easily accessed in advance of the production period
  • A production office for the stage management team
  • Space for more education classes, lectures, rehearsed readings and other events

Your support, however large or small, will go directly to making more inclusive and affordable theatre and education experiences for everyone.

New Beginnings Campaign

Our Vision is for GSC to be one of the most recognised theatre companies in the South East, a model for performance and production excellence...but to do this we need to find a PERMANENT HOME for the company, giving GSC a more holistic approach to making theatre for everyone.

The New Beginnings campaign will raise money to fund the procurement of such building.

Currently, all our rehearsal spaces are hired on a shared, ad-hoc basis, and our four storage units are scattered across Guildford. There is no laundry for costumes or workshop space to construct props or set. Our own home could solve these challenging logistic issues and provide us with the facilities listed opposite.

To have all this under one roof will ensure GSC can meet the strategic goal of being a valuable asset and resource for Guildford, of which its residents can be proud.

Our target is £75,000.

You can help us achieve these ambitions and take a leading role in our future by becoming a GSC Benefactor and sponsoring Matt's Bard-Walk Adventure...but who will you be?

  • Prospero £1000
  • Cleopatra £500
  • Hamlet £250
  • Titania £100
  • Bottom £50
  • Juliet £25
  • Viola £10

Last year 14,564 people saw our shows. If 1,500 of those people became a 'Bottom' we could reach our total!
