The board would like to thank Tom, Sharon, Mike and Aaron for their leadership in making SCTG a success this past year. Tom has been instrumental advertising, Sharon with her organizational skills, Mike with his “let’s get moving” attitude and Aaron with the optimism of youth, and all have brought laughter and focus to this year’s board.

Sharon and Tom have elected to step down and join the ranks of members at large. Mike and Aaron at large if the membership chooses. We wish them luck as they move on to new adventures and we look forward to their participation in other capacities. Thank you and you will be missed!

Move in day is Monday for “Fiddler on the Roof”

Time to move into the theatre! Monday morning at 9:00 a.m. we’ll be at the Guild Building in St. Clair to load up the sets, props and costumes for this week’s production of Fiddler on the Roof. From there, we’ll head to the East China Performing Arts Center to load-in and hang the backdrops.

At 4:00 p.m., we’ll be removing the orchestra pit flooring so the musicians can get settled in for our technical rehearsal Monday evening.

Volunteers are welcome for all of this fun and adventure! If you can help move or help with the pit floor (or both), please stop by! The more the merrier!
