The Theatre Guild of Guyana is a volunteer, not-for-profit, non-governmental organization, committed to the nurturing and training of artistic talents in Guyana
The Theatre Guild of Guyana's Playhouse is the oldest Theatrical and Performance facility in Guyana and the second oldest in the Caribbean. The Theatre Guild (TG) was founded in 1957, the Playhouse was opened in 1960 and the organization incorporated on 9th September 1961.

A volunteer not-for-profit, non-governmental organization the Theatre Guild of Guyana has, from its inception been committed to the nurturing, training of artists across the spectrum of the performing arts in Guyana and the region. Beginning in the 1960's and up to the mid-1990's when the Playhouse and membership fell into disrepair; these commitments were realized in a variety of theatrical production, training and educational workshops, and playwriting competitions

The 2007 restoration of the Playhouse made possible through the generosity of many private and public local and oversees donors has renewed the energy of the organization and the membership is determined to ensure that the younger generations of Guyanese from all spheres of the community will have the opportunity to learn about and appreciate the magic of engagement in all areas of creative arts.
