Current Production

Would you like to take part in a brand new piece of community theatre? We are really excited about this year’s open air production at Gatton Park and do hope you would like to get involved either as actor, helper, set builder or painter, graphics design, chaperone or front of house.

The production is to be directed by Libby Egwuba and will be a newly commissioned piece of theatre written by Anna Thompson. This will once again be a promenade theatre production within the beautiful grounds of Gatton Park. Rehearsals will start after Easter.

The play will follow Legion, a homeless ex-serviceman, his dog and a sparrow on a journey of self-discovery. During his search for an acceptance of who he is and a cure for his sickness, Legion meets a number of animals - the sparrow, a cat, a magpie, a mouse, and others - who tell him stories of a miracle healer, and so he begins his search until finally he encounters The Lamb. Familiar stories from the Bible are the inspiration for the animals’ own original stories; at times funny and at others poignant it will be the story of a journey of discovery, friendship and love and suitable for all ages of audience, both adults and children.

We are hoping that once again we will have a large cast of people of all ages and from all walks of life who would like to be involved. We welcome anyone of any age (8+), experience or ability who wishes to take part, There are no membership fees.

If you would like to join us on this adventurous journey either as an actor or backstage helper, or just to find out more, come along to our drama workshops being held in the Royal Alexandra & Albert School Chapel, Gatton Park, Reigate, Surrey, RH2 0TW, on Sunday 26th February and/or Saturday 4th March both from 2.30-4.30pm. You are welcome to attend both sessions.
