In 2012 Majella was invited by Guildford Borough Council to direct and co-produce ‘Jubilation’ a celebration of both The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the 15th birthday of The Electric Theatre. The production combined the talents of local adult professional and amateur performers, students from Guildford School of Acting and children from The Man in the Moon Youth Theatre.
"Jubilation! […] featured a cast of 60 local performers who took us on a fantastic nostalgic musical and theatrical journey through the past 60 years."
