Come and see Windsor Theatre Guild summer outdoor performance of “Emma” from the novel by Jane Austen, adapted by Michael Bloom.

 

“Emma” is a comical and highly theatrical adaptation of one of Jane Austen's greatest novels. Pledging never to marry, the mischievous Emma Woodhouse is nevertheless the "matchmaker of Highbury." Her newest project, Harriet Smith, has already received a proposal, but Emma insists she marry the eligible vicar Mr. Elton, while, an older family friend, Mr. Knightly, warns her to give up matchmaking. When Emma discovers Mr. Elton is more interested in her, she is forced to fend him off and find another suitor for Harriet. Highbury welcomes two new guests, a mysterious Jane Fairfax and the charming Frank Churchill, and Emma finds herself falling just a little in love with him. Ultimately, she decides that Frank is better suited to Harriet, but when she suggests the match, Emma is astonished to discover that Harriet has fallen for Mr. Knightly. A horrified Emma suddenly realizes she has always been in love with Mr. Knightley. In the end, all is set right as Frank reveals his secret engagement to Jane, Harriet receives a second offer from her first beau, and Mr. Knightley proposes to the deliriously happy Emma.

Past Shows

Animal Farm Poster.jpg

“All Animals Are Equal

But Some Animals Are More Equal Than Others”

George Orwell’s world-famous and unsettling 'fairy story' was originally based on the Russian Revolution of 1917 and its aftermath.

 

With its themes of freedom, fake news and the corrupting nature of power, it is as relevant today as when it was written at the end of the Second World War.

Old Major, the prize boar, calls the animals of Manor Farm together. He has had a strange dream of a better future...

Animal Farm

Forever Yours, Casanova

WINDSOR THEATRE GUILD IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE OLD COURT (1).jpg

A humorous romp of mistaken identities, dastardly plots, revenge and a relentless cardinal bent on the destruction of the scandalous Casanova!

The year is 1770 and this chapter of the infamous lover’s story runs deep with deception, passion, betrayal and romance. Has the lover gone too far this time? Will his passion prove to be his undoing?

This world premiere of a brand new comedy directed by Karen Hanley was performed by the Windsor Theatre Guild at the Old Court, Windsor. 

Twelfth Night_edited.jpg

Twelfth Night

We returned to the 3-D world of face-to-face theatre in summer 2021 with the ageless Twelfth Night. 

 

Shakespeare's great comedy of love, mistaken identity, and mischievous tricks, was placed in an innovative new setting at a 1920's seaside hotel, with original music.

 

Director Adrian Tang staged the show in the round, which gave it an intimacy that matched the show's themes perfectly.

The Tyttesfield Manor Murders

When people were stuck for fabulous things to do in miserable lockdown January 2021, WTG Productions blasted them out of their malaise with “The Tyttesfield Manor Murders”.

 

Set in 1933, a huge scandal  exposed a tale of aristocratic debauchery, murderous lower orders, and niche underwear.

 

This scandal had people aghast with horror, gripped with suspense, and moist with anticipation…
