    Directed by David Dayler

    Apr. 28, 29, May 4, 5, 6*, 11, 12, 13*, 2017

    Sometimes hilarious, sometimes touching, this song cycle is a nonstop exploration of everyday struggles in the modern world, particularly those surrounding love. Each song is a unique story told by a new character in the Maltby and Shire songbook. The audience is invited to laugh with delight or pause for self reflection.

Welcome to The Players' Guild


A murder in 1876... ...the killer's hanging two months later.

Rumours of a ghost in the costume room... A gray Victorian house with a bright red door.

Historical facts? An incredible backdrop for great theatre? How about both! The Players' Guild of Hamilton, the oldest community theatre in North America, is proud to announce that this coming season, patrons will get both: four great plays held at the historic Guild House - one of Hamilton's oldest and most unique theatre spaces.
