Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre opened its doors in 1965 as a proud memorial to the much loved French actress who had made her home in Effingham Common, and whose warmth, humour and talent gave her an unrivalled position on the English stage for nearly fifty years.

“How wonderful that Guildford’s special Theatre is celebrating its fiftieth Birthday!  The Yvonne Arnaud was built by local enthusiastic theatregoers and has served its community brilliantly for half a Century. 

“The fact that it is alive and flourishing is a real testament to the determination of its audience, local businesses, those who support it through donations, however large or small, those who work there and, of course, Guildford Borough Council, who have invested so much in it over the years and continue to do so.  The Council should be proud of its support, as should everyone involved.  

Happy Birthday to Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre!”  

Dame Judi Dench DBE

 

“Guildford without its Yvonne Arnaud Theatre would be unthinkable.  It has bought so much pleasure to hundreds of thousands of people over the years and its terrific Youth Theatre is a wonderful asset, not only for the young people of the town but from all around.  Here’s to the next fifty years!”

Dame Penelope Keith DBE

November 15 - November 16

£17.50

Set at a private British grammar school, this powerfully compelling play explores adolescence, anxiety and all the pressures the lead up to A-Level Mock Examinations can bring. Friendships are tested and allegiances shift as increasing tensions within a group of affluent and articulate students is brutally laid bare.

Funny and shocking, Punk Rock was a major hit for the Lyric Hammersmith in London, and has also enjoyed a sell-out season on Broadway.

Presented by Mis-Shapen Chaos Theatre Company
