A message from the President - Jan King

"This season I am very proud to be President of the oldest Little Theatre in the Country.When I walked through the Garrick doors back in 1976, I was very nervous and apprehensive.There was no need: I was made very welcome and that was me “hooked”!The warm welcome continues today.Tours round our wonderful theatre are available every Tuesday, except when a play is running.
Last year I sat on The Plays & Casting Committee, and we have planned a superb season for you. Please take time to explore our website and if you wish to contact me, my address is – I look forward to hearing from you. Enjoy!"
