From September 2017 Guildburys will be bringing a production of Hans Christian Andersen’s much loved fairy tale, The Princess and the Pea, to primary schools in Surrey and Hampshire. The play is a wonderful opportunity to introduce primary school children to live theatre as they join Columbine, Arlequin, Punchin and Rosetta on a journey of discovery and problem solving ! Why not arrange a visit to discuss bringing the show to your school and to answer all your questions?
The Princess and the Pea will be available for performance from the beginning of the autumn term 2017 onwards. Simply staged with minimum fuss, the running time of the performance will be approximately 45 minutes. All we need is a performance area of about 7 x 5 metres with an adjacent area for changing. The cost of the production will be £2.00 – £3.00 per pupil (subject to minimum numbers).

Guildburys are delighted to announce that they have been awarded the NODA South East region Drama Accolade of Excellence for their production of ‘The Royal Baccarat Scandal”. This was a production that showcased the high production values that Guildburys are renowned for – an imaginatively detailed set, sumptuous costumes and superb performances from an excellent cast. The director, Gilly Fick, the cast and the whole Guildbury production team worked hard to make the show a success and the award is a reflection of that hard work and the icing on the cake !

“Fantastic – a truly captivating plot brought to life by charismatic performances. The pace moved at a lick to cover the extensive scope and full dialogue of the complex main and sub-plots , then softened at the thoughtful, tense and emotional moments to draw the audience in. The scenes are each recollections from Sir William Gordon Cumming as he explains his past tribulations to his daughter in answer to her question as to why the room fell silent when she had revealed her maiden name in a society party. This is a sensitive treatment of an old man confiding for the first time and the story flowed seamlessly as one memory evoked another episode while the scandal unfolded. The audience’s perspective was moved on a see-saw journey seen alternately through the eyes of an offender and a victim. I felt truly privileged to have been in the audience for intimate and powerful and moving drama. The characters were real, the situations captivating and the conflicting emotions were expressed with dexterity.”
We are thrilled that the recent charity performance of The Royal Baccarat Scandal organised by the Rotary Club of Guildford district raised the record sum of £1,800 in aid of Disability Challengers. Guildburys were delighted to be able to assist the Rotary club with raising such a splendid amount of money for such a deserving charity.
Disability Challengers is an independent charity that, for more than 30 years, has developed and delivered inclusive play and leisure for disabled children and young people across Surrey, Hampshire and increasingly the surrounding areas. The charity is based in Guildford (at ‘Challengers Guildford Playcentre’, our headquarters and one of our full time playcentres).
In 2011 they delivered more than 25,500 visits (or 124,292 hours) to 1,240 disabled children. These services were delivered at the Challengers’ Guildford and Farnham Centres as well as schemes based at schools and community youth centres all through the year.

Ian Nichols must be congratulated for his wonderful design, complemented by simple and effective lighting and evocative music.This attention to detail came through everywhere in this production and the director, Laura Sheppard should be very proud, the direction was excellent in every respect throughout this excellent, funny and poignant play.’
The director, Laura Sheppard, received the award on behalf of the company.
