SCTG response to COVID-19 situation

To comply with the statewide order to stay at home, and in light of the fact that we can’t produce any live theatre until the COVID-19 situation is resolved or at least normalized, all activities of the St. Clair Theatre Guild, including monthly board meetings, have been canceled or postponed until April 30, 2020.

Check the SCTG website for updates as the situation changes.

The priority is taking care of ourselves, our families and friends, and our community. Take care, and we’ll see you all when we get back to normal!

Annual Christmas Caroling on Monday, Dec. 9

Christmas wreath

Each year, members of the St. Clair Theatre Guild head out to share the holiday spirit with some special members of our community. This year’s Christmas Caroling will Monday, December 9, and everyone – current, former, and prospective guild members and friends – is invited!

We’ll start at MediLodge (located behind Ascension River District Hospital on M-29 in East China) at 6:30 p.m. We’ll move on to Mallard’s Landing around 7:30 p.m.

After the caroling visits, an afterglow will take place. Details will be available to those who attend at either or both locations.

Come out and be part of the holiday spirit! This is a fun night and a chance to spread Holiday cheer to our senior friends. You don’t need to rehearse and as far as that goes you don’t have to sing! Bring a friend or a dozen. All are welcome. Kim LaDuke will be playing the piano. She might even get you to solo….
