We have a lot to be proud of!
LGP is a notably happy team - there are no stars - and the door is always open to new members. Once a year (usually in November) we stage our "big production". We've found our audiences enjoy the play more if we feed them too, so these plays are generally dinner theatres.
These dinner theatres are generally performed to an audience of around 100 per night. This can be quite daunting for new new joiners who think they can’t act, but we usually manage to surprise them.
