  • Richard IIIAugust 2013
    Guild's Richard a royal success ... an outstanding production The Advertiser
    Think that Shakespeare is too wordy, too dusty, too mouldy to be worth sitting through?  Think again!  The UATG's staging of 'Richard III' is a thrilling triumph Adelaide Theatre Guide
    The University of Adelaide Theatre Guild's brilliant and unconventional take on Shakespeare's 'Richard III' is riveting in its intensity ... this is a memorable production, dominated by Bart Csorba's brilliant performance. Stage Whispers
  • AwayMay 2013
    It is always a privilege to see a student production sponsored by an established theatre company such as the Guild.  Such a production not only gives experience to aspiring thespians, but also shows us what (and who) might be waiting in the wings as the future of theatre in a community.  This production of Australian playwright Michael Gow's 'Away', well known and oft studied by high school students, is a fine example of such a student production Australian Stage Online

    ... an absolute cracker of a production ... this production has everything going for it Adelaide Theatre Guide

  • The Merchant of VeniceAugust 2012
    ... one of the best casts on an amateur stage in years The Advertiser

It might just turn you into an addict. Don't wait too long to get your tickets though as word is spreading fast that this is a real winner! Glam Adelaide
