In line with the government’s easing of restrictions, we once again are running our classes, clubs and workshops in person. In the event that government advice changes we will revert back to online teaching via Zoom.

Update 7 January 2022: In line with recent government guidelines, all members of GSC clubs and classes must wear your masks at all times whilst indoors (unless exempt). Teachers may either wear a mask or ensure they are always at least two metres from students.

The Guildford Shakespeare Company reserves the right to ask any members to leave the premises who do not adhere to the above temporary measures.


Every Saturday we ignite the imagination of young actors in small friendly groups. Working with professional actors and stage combat instructors, they play fun games, rehearse plays, strengthen their confidence and learn more about the exciting world of theatre.


Each term, the AM group tackle a different play and a different performance venue, in keeping with our professional productions. In recent years, we've performed:

  • At the Sonnet Walk Weekend
  • As You Like It at Guildford Castle
  • New plays at Guildford Innovate Festival
  • Henry V at GSC's 10th Anniversary Gala
  • Twelfth Night at Rack’s Close
  • All’s Well That Ends Well on the professional stage
  • Recorded audio-plays with Eagle Radio!

NB: The PM group takes the pressure of performing and focus on drama games, exercises and plenty of theatre fun.

“GSC has had such a positive impact over the years on both their confidence on stage and also their love of Shakespeare.” Club Member’s Mum
