For Booking Information and Performance Times

The Theatre is currently Closed

18th March until to be advised 2020


When, acting on Government advice issued in late March, we cancelled the productions due to be staged in April, May and early June, we left open the position concerning our final production of the Season, The Scarlet Pimpernel, particularly as this show was due to transfer from Crayford to the Minack in Cornwall in the first week of August.

However, it is now clear that it will not be possible to stage The Scarlet Pimpernel this summer as planned, but we have made this decision in close liaison with the team at the Minack. Indeed we have had very constructive discussions with them about rescheduling the play for performance in Cornwall in August 2022 and further details of the new dates for that production will be announced in due course.

No final decision has been made about the possibility of staging the Youth Group production of The Railway Children in September and we will update you on this as soon as we can.

In the meantime we are pleased to announce that our 2020/21 Season Launch will be conducted online on the evening of Saturday 6 June starting at 7.00pm. The Launch will take place virtually via the GWT Facebook page, with links to audition pieces and further information being available on the website at the end of the evening. Whilst there remains a lot of uncertainty about when we will be able to open our doors, we have planned an exciting twelve month programme and, at the Launch, we will explain how we will deliver that when the time is right.

So put the date in your diary and join us for the Launch on Saturday 6 June!

A message for audience members who have booked for cancelled/postponed productions.

First of all, our sincere thanks to all of you who have so helpfully responded letting us know the options you are choosing. Additionally, we have really appreciated the many, many messages of goodwill we have received and we know that you can’t wait to get back to your GWT visits!

1. 'The Railway Children'. For all those members who have requested a ticket exchange for a date in September, as stated above, we will give you an update as soon as we can.

2. 'The Audience' 'Constellations' and ‘The Scarlet Pimpernel’. We have dealt with nearly all the requests for refunds. We have a record of all members who have requested vouchers for complimentary tickets for next season and we will be in touch about those in due course. Most importantly, we want to say a huge thank you to the overwhelming number of members who have most generously asked us to use their ticket payments as donations to the theatre.

There are now only a very few members who have not yet told us what they would like to do with their bookings. If you are one of those, please would you be kind enough to let our Box Office Manager, Lesley Robins, know what you would like to do.
