We're a group of volunteers who come together to put on plays. Help us to maintain quality theatre in Stockport by getting involved in what we do! Stockport Garrick Theatre is all about a group of people having a shared creative experience, as we aim to make theatre of the highest quality and tell amazing stories. Members pay a yearly fee (or a lifetime fee if you’re really committed) and then get involved in all the different activities it takes to keep our theatre going. There’s all the things you’ll see on our stage - but there’s also plenty of things off stage too - as well as loads of social events and other creative opportunities!

"Just back from seeing Dear Lupin at Stockport Garrick. Absolutely brilliant! Get your tickets-support your local theatre, see two brilliant performances and cheer yourselves up on a dark January night. What's not to love?!"

"Saw the opening night of Dear Lupin at Stockport Garrick tonight (yesterday now!) Didn’t disappoint - delivered on every aspect. Very, very funny, with quite soulful and poignant moments, all delivered expertly by two consummate performers. Beautifully and profoundly realised. Loved it!!"

"A timely tribute to the fallen. The piece captures the twin features of war: furious terror and human tragedy. The mostly young cast portray this with fervour and skill."
