A letter from the SCTG President regarding “The Music Man”

After making change after change in order to stage the production of The Music Man, we encountered a circumstance which could not be overcome in the time remaining. Our cast was informed and released as of January 21, 2015.

This was a decision not made easily or happily and may indicate a need to rethink our ability to produce large cast musicals. Our heartfelt thanks to all who came out for the auditions and committed to the several months it takes to build and perform a show of this magnitude.

We deeply regret having to make this decision and extend our thanks to all the cast and crew for your commitments.

The SCTG Board will have a special meeting this Sunday to determine what our next move will be. Please keep in touch with us as this is merely a setback. It will not deter us from future productions.

“Steel Magnolias” – December 11-13, 2014

The Guild is presenting Robert Harling‘s play Steel Magnolias on December 11, 12 and 13. Our venue will be the St. Clair Knights of Columbus Hall, 3501 Rattle Run Rd. in St. Clair Township. Curtain time each evening will be 7:30 p.m.

SCTG’s production is being directed by Lucie Gillespie and produced by Brian Moss and Ray Govaere.

Steel Magnolias is the enduring and humorous tale of six southern women who share the ups and downs of their lives at the local beauty salon. As the title suggests, the main female characters are both as delicate as the magnolia flower and as tough as steel.

Harling’s play described the experience of his family and friends following the death of his sister from diabetic complications after the birth of his namesake nephew and failure of a family member-donated kidney. A writer friend continuously encouraged Harling to write it down in order to come to terms with the experience. He did but originally as a short story for his nephew, which he later redeveloped into the play.

Tickets are $15.00 general admission, $12.00 for students and seniors, and will be available after Thanksgiving at the following locations:

  • St. Clair Art Association in St. Clair
  • Sue’s Coffee House in St. Clair
  • Riveria Family Restaruant in Marine City
  • and online on the SCTG website
