Gatton Community Theatre

"Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies?

And not one of them is forgotten before God."

Would you like to join in a new piece of community theatre?

Gatton Community Theatre is inviting adults and children (aged 8+) to be involved either as actors or backstage helpers in their next summer production at Gatton Park.  To express and interest in the project, or to find out more you are invited to come along to a second drama workshops being held at Gatton Park, Rocky Lane, Reigate, on Saturday 4th March 2.30-4.30pm. (Meeting in the Royal Alexandra & Albert School Chapel)

The production itself will be a newly commissioned piece of theatre, If a Sparrow Should Fall, and will take the form of an open air promenade theatre production within the beautiful grounds of Gatton Park, Reigate, with eight performances taking place over two weeks in July 2017.   Rehearsals will start after Easter.  The production will be directed by Libby Egwuba.

The play will follow Legion, a homeless ex-serviceman, his dog and a sparrow on a journey of self-discovery. During his search for an acceptance of who he is and a cure for his sickness, Legion meets a number of animals who tell him stories of a miracle healer - the sparrow, a cat, a magpie, a mouse, and others, and so he begins his search until finally he encounters The Lamb. Familiar stories from the bible are the inspiration for the animal's own original stories; at times funny and at others poignant it will be the story of a journey of discovery, friendship and love and suitable for all ages of audience, both adults and children aged 8+.

We are hoping that once again we will have a large cast of people of all ages and from all walks of life who would like to be involved. We welcome anyone of any age, experience or ability who wishes to take part, as either actors or backstage help, and the production will appeal to audiences of all ages. There are no membership fees.

Inspiration for the play was from Luke 12:6 and Matthew 6:25-34.
