Welcome to The Player's 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.

The meeting will be followed by a slide show presented by Scott Smith recapping this season’s shows and then a party featuring Shari Vandermolen and her jazz band Quarter 2 Nine. She will do two sets - 8:30 for some easy listening and entertainment and 9:30 for dancing and partying. After the formal part of the meeting, Dan Scruton, a local musician will perform in the Eastbourne Room to get us in the party mood while we set out the food and strike the slide show. We will open the doors to the general public around 8:15 and there will be a light buffet and our usual pay bar throughout the night. Members will pay $10 to cover the cost of food and if they wish to stay for the rest of the night an additional $5. Tickets for everyone else will be $20. Talk it up, bring your friends and let’s have a good time. See you there.
