Looing forward to our final performance this evening.

We were so sorry and disappointed we had to cancel yesterday; because of the heavy rain all day some parts of the site were very slippery and the safety of our audience and cast was considered at risk.

However we hope to see you tonight!  If you were a Friday ticketholder these tickets will be honoured this evening.

GCT’s Summer Production  July 2015

Pippa's Progress:  A Pilgrim’s Journey to Heaven

“Saw "Pippa" last night and it was a magical evening, we enjoyed the performance immensely.”

 

“We had a fantastic time at Gatton yesterday. Go and enjoy! We did.”

 

“Congratulations on a marvellous piece of work - truly community theatre at its best.”

 

“One of the most enjoyable evening’s entertainment  that I have seen for many a year”

 

“This is a very good show - really very good - with so much in it to applaud”

 

“It's been an honour for me to see my story given new life and fresh vigour by yourself and your very talented theatre company.”

 

“Congratulations to everyone who has played their part in this production. It deserves an audience of thousands...”

 

We are delighted that author Simon Parke has given his blessing to the prospect of the "wonderful Gatton Community Theatre"  adapting his inspirational book, Pippa's Progress, for our next large community theatre project. 

 

What if John Bunyan were to write Pilgrim’s Progress today?

Times have changed since John Bunyan wrote his classic Pilgrim’s Progress, telling of Pilgrim’s journey up Hill Difficult and through the Slough of Despond to the Celestial City. Yet people in their millions still seek meaning in their lives and speak of journeying towards a goal.  Everyone on earth seeks a heaven.

 

Adapted into a contemporary new play by GCT’s artistic director, Anna Thompson, Pippa’s Progress follows the journey of Pippa, a 21st-century Pilgrim.  This moving and modern-day story will follow the original’s premise of a pilgrim’s journey to heaven, but this time through the trials and temptations of our secularised, multi-cultural society.  It is a riveting story of spiritual journeying in the 21st century, full of modern monsters, comedy and grace - all brought to life by Gatton Community Theatre in the dramatic setting of Gatton Park, Reigate. 

Featuring musical accompaniment by Libby Egwuba and Merstham's PATH Gospel Choir
