What We Do


“I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.” 

 Oscar Wilde

The Geoffrey Whitworth is a public theatre with over 1700 members, founded in 1948.

We produce ten or eleven productions annually, each usually lasting for 8 nights, including a Youth Group Production.

We at the Geoffrey Whitworth are proud of our reputation for presenting high quality drama. Our Mission Statements is
