Why We Are Here

Our goal is to form a core group of actors, directors, & artists to firmly establish an English speaking theatre company in Guangzhou. In the future we would like to produce works of varying types & sizes, including Broadway musicals, and weekly improv shows.

Guangzhou English Theatre is being founded by John Epperson, an actor & director from the United States. John has over 20 years of experience in theatre, as an actor, director, combat choreographer, sound designer, set designer, and lighting designer. A graduate of the esteemed MFA program at American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco, John was the artistic and managing director of Darkroom Productions for 3 years before moving to Guangzhou in 2007.

Hello, would be good to see this group opening again. I teach theatre at GDUFS and run workshops at other venues.  There seems to be enough interest in GZ for group like this and if it would be good to get something going.

Thanks Doctor, is it better to start a new group to find who may be active?

hi, folks,

this is doc martin, i'm a british, new york, experimental collaborative performance director who has made gz. my home.  in discovering this site, i'm hoping that we can soon get a working group together; i am hoping to speak to john epperson soon and get a better sense of how i might best contribute.

looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible.

Hi there. Is the Guangzhou English Theatre still active and how can I contact it? My company is looking forward to hiring one or two actors for work. Grateful if someone could get back to me. Thanks.
