The 'Guild' was established in 1938 and is a not-for-profit community theatre company.
The Theatre Guild is based on the North Terrace campus of the University of Adelaide, with an office and other facilities in Union Hall, and is formally recognised as a society associated with the University. It is also a club within the Clubs Association of the Adelaide University Union.
The University part-funds an Administrator for the Theatre Guild, the Vice-Chancellor is its Patron, and the University has other formal links with the Guild's management and operations.
The Theatre Guild normally presents three to four major productions per year in its home base, the University's Little Theatre, along with shorter seasons of experimental work, playreadings, workshops and social events.
Membership of the Theatre Guild is not restricted to members of the University, and in this the Guild provides an interface between the University and the general community.
The Theatre Guild is officially registered as an Incorporated Association in South Australia. The University of Adelaide Theatre Guild Inc. Public Fund is approved for tax-deductibility purposes on the Commonwealth Government's Register of Cultural Organisations under SubSection 30-300(7) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997.
