GSC YOUNG COMPANY
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.
THE 2020 COMPANY
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 Hood, Alice in Wonderland, Grimms' Fairy Tales), through a combination of devising, improvisation and written text.
The Company gain an even greater insight into professional theatre though GSC's mentoring programme. Members gain feedback on their acting skills and take on creative and backstage roles, through a variety of masterclasses, production meetings and guided tasks.
GSC Young Company meet every Thursday, 5.30pm - 7.30pm, at GSC HQ
