Annual Meeting and Picnic on September 15

The Annual Meeting of the St. Clair Theatre Guild will take place, as required by our by-laws, on the third Sunday of September at 4:00 p.m. This year that’s September 15, and we’re going to have a picnic before so current members and interested future members can discuss our future plans for 2019-2020.

The picnic will begin at 2:00 p.m. at the Guild Building, located in Klecha Park on Goffe St. in St. Clair, near the intersection with Palmer St. Bring a dish to pass and your own beverages.

At 4:00 p.m., the Annual Meeting will begin. Reports will be given to the membership and an election for the board of directors will be conducted. If you are interested in standing for election to the SCTG board for a two-year term (September 2019 to August 2021), please use our Contact form to let President Tom Kephart know.

In order to participate in the Annual Meeting part of the afternoon, you will need to join the Guild or renew your membership for 2019-20. Membership forms will be available at the picnic, or you can download one here in advance. Dues are $15.00 for adults and $5.00 for children 17 or younger.

Building cleanup on August 27

With auditions for our fall show coming up, it’s time to clean up our rehearsal and storage building on Goffe Street! Help us clean out the cobwebs and put things back where they belong on Tuesday, August 27, starting at 5:00 p.m.

Owen McIntyre will be leading the crew and everyone is welcome to come help… there will be jobs big and small. Bring gloves, brooms, and other cleaning supplies if you have them. We want to leave a good impression on anyone who’s never been to our building before!

Audition notice – September 4 and 5

The Guild will hold auditions for an upcoming musical production on Wednesday and Thursday, September 4 and 5, 2019. The musical has been selected but we are unable to name it on the website until a venue has been secured and the rights are obtained.

Auditions will begin at 6:30 p.m. each evening at the SCTG Building in Klecha Park on Goffe Street in St. Clair (at the corner with Palmer St.). No pre-registration is necessary. Auditioners should prepare a short song from a stage musical. Readings from the scripts and other improvisational exercises will also be used as part of the audition.

There are nine major characters, four women and five men, plus several minor characters that might be doubled by the other actors or could be cast as small roles. The age range is 16 and older. The musical is a comedy, and the songs range from easy to sing to challenging.

Tom Kephart is the director and vocal director. We will also be looking for a pianist for the rehearsals and performances. If interested, use the Contact form to let us know.

Production dates are in late October, and are pending the finalization of the venue. More details will be made available here once the rights are secured.

If you have questions, use our Contact form and the director will contact you.
