"DID MY HEART LOVE TILL NOW?" An ancient feud spills out onto the streets and authorities strain to keep control. At a high society party, a young man and woman meet, igniting a passion that sets all Verona alight. To stay together, they must risk everything…

To celebrate our 18th Anniversary, we're planning one of our most ambitious projects to date. This summer we're swapping Verona for Guildford with a multi-venue town-centre open-air production of ROMEO & JULIET.

Featuring iconic Guildford landmarks including the High Street, the Guildhall, Tunsgate, Holy Trinity Church, the Castle Gardens, and more, Shakespeare’s great love-story will be brought to life, not only by our professional cast but also by a community chorus of young people and local performers.

...and you can be part of the action!

COMMUNITY CASTING CALL! As well as telling Shakespeare’s captivating romantic tragedy, our open-air season this summer is also about celebrating the community that surrounds us here in Guildford.

We want our Guildford residents to be centre-stage, so together with a youth ensemble, we’re casting a range of performers aged 18+ to help us bring to life a pivotal scene in Romeo & Juliet: the Capulet ball where Juliet and Romeo meet for the first time. This is a high society party where the movers and the shakers of Verona strut their stuff and where the Capulets are showing off the best they can.

Performing will involve some dancing/movement, possibly a little dialogue, and buckets of energy to bring this fun and beautiful scene to life.

So, do you enjoy:
