The Teddington Theatre Club and Hampton Hill Theatre Trustees are regularly monitoring advice and guidance from the UK Government and Public Health England, and we are complying with all directives received in response to coronavirus (COVID-19). We are also committed to safeguarding our members’ best interests.

Following the latest advice from the government on Friday 20th March, the Trustees have officially closed Hampton Hill Theatre with immediate effect until the end of May 2020.

Essential personnel will still be allowed within Hampton Hill Theatre to ensure that the building is safe and secure.  We would ask all others to stay away from the theatre, as you will not be allowed to enter.

The health and wellbeing of our members, volunteers and customers remains our first priority so we would urge you to follow the latest government advice at https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus.

Teechers by John Godber
Directed by Asha Gill 

Teechers is a play within a play, performed at Whitewall High School… which we will be performing in the Coward Room at Hampton Hill Theatre. It is a homage to the drama teacher, Mr Harrison, who is being portrayed as Mr Nixon.  Salty, Hobby and Gail play all the parts themselves, and sometimes within the same lines, switch characters to portray all the roles listed below. Mr Nixon is a new teacher, who changes and touches the lives of the three students but soon leaves for the much more attractive Saint George’s School next door.

Loot by Joe Orton
Directed by Nigel Cole

Two young lovers stash the proceeds of a bank robbery in an occupied coffin, attempting to hide their spoils from the attentions of a psychopathic policeman, a serial-killer nurse and a grieving widower. In the ensuing comic carnage, Joe Orton creates a world gone mad, wielding a satirical sledgehammer to conventional English morality.

This glorious, frenetic black farce from one of Britain’s finest (and arguably) filthiest playwrights is an actor’s dream. Farce always requires huge physicality and energy but in Loot, Orton’s signature rapid-fire wordplay will also demand great verbal dexterity and accuracy.
