We hold open auditions for our Spring and Autumn shows performed at the Electric theatre, and for Summer shows. Auditions for Festival productions are for members only. All auditions are held with the director and at least one other reader together with members of the production team, at a pre-arranged time. We rehearse on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday evenings. Our rehearsals are held at Compton Village Club on the outskirts of Guildford – see the Guildbury map for locations.

We look for people who share our values and we cast the person we consider best for the part; all those in a show company must join by paying a membership fee.


We have an outstanding team which includes many high calibre ex-professionals. However, there are a wide range of opportunities for anyone wishing to gain experience or become involved. These include:

Stage Management
Set Building and painting
Front of House

As with our actors we aim for high standards but we are willing to recruit those with little or no experience but great enthusiasm. Get in touch and get involved !


We have a wonderful group of experienced and talented directors.


The committee is charged with running the society on behalf of the membership and elections are held annually at the Annual General Meeting. There is a maximum of 9 committee members  and once elected, they vote to appoint the office holders; these are –

Chairman, Vice Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary


The committee co-ordinate social activities for the group. Our social programme is an important part of our activity and we hold monthly pub nights at various local venues.
