Following in the footsteps of our professionals, the GSC Young Company is a weekly course for 12-18 yr olds. Members devise and rehearse a brand new play inspired by our professional season. Each show is staged in a local Guildford venue, emulating our company's site-responsive philosophy.

Building on the success of 2020's Measure The Merry Night, members have been greatly involved in the writing process. The play has been writtenwith GSC’s Associate Playwright, Ant Stones (Robin HoodAlice in WonderlandGrimms' Fairy Tales), through a combination of devising, improvisation and written text.
