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.


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.


GSC Young Company meet every Thursday, 5.30pm - 7.30pm, at GSC HQ

The Different Phases

The course is split into two phases. Phase 1 begins in September and focuses on devising the script through practical exercises. Phase 2 begins in January with rehearsals of the completed script, before the final public performance at Easter.

The course is designed so children can join at the beginning of Phase 1 or Phase 2 (subject to availability).


The course for 2021-22 is no longer taking applications. Details of future courses will be placed here.


GSC is committed to making your time with us as enjoyable as possible. We aim to cater for every student’s needs and our rehearsal spaces are wheelchair friendly.
