We pride ourselves in helping everyone to find the MAGIC OF THEATRE in a safe and fun environment.

That magic could be found at one of our workshops or even watching one of our shows. The magic can even be found at one of our special bingo events or online in our new cyber plays! Now things are starting to get back to normal we're proud to restart our weekly session in Northamptonshire.

So now it's your chance to take CENTRE STAGE and perform on stage! 

We're one of the fastest growing local theatre companies around! Since opening our doors in 2015 GLJ THEATRE has grown from strength to strength opening new youth theatre sessions in Northamptonshire, relaunching the Wellingborough Community Show, taking to the road for school workshops and even to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.


Are you ready to feel the magic of theatre?

GLJ Theatre belives that everyone should have the chance to take to the stage and feel the magic of theatre. With the continued support of Glamis Hall we're able to host a number of community productions throughout the year.

We're proud to present the WELLINGBOROUGH COMMUNITY SHOW on behalf of the town after funding stopped the project taking place at the local theatre. 

GLJ Theatre have now presented six community theatre productions and has worked with over 200 people on stage and backstage. 

The GLJ Community Theatre Show are FREE to take part in BUT all members must audition to take part in the show. Successful members are then invited to rehearsals on a Monday evening.

Community productions coming up in 2022



a little more info

Gary L Johnson opened GLJ THEATRE in September 2015 and the company has grown ever since. GLJ THEATRE loves to discover and create theatre through a fun and relaxed environment where everyone is welcome to become creative!


Gary himself was a member of his local youth theatre and theatre company (at The Castle, Theatre) before moving on to train professionally.

Gary said “The best way to learn the key skills of acting / theatre is by taking part in group exercises and playing lots and lots of fun games! It just makes everyone relax and get along very quickly… After the group has relaxed the young people pick up the important theatre techniques

very quickly."


Gary along with the help of GLAMIS HALL and

THE EARLS BARTON METHODIST CHURCH have made all sessions affordable for everyone (and we have plenty of packages to continue to support through your GLJ adventure)


So why not join "THE BEST... (so our members say) ...
