Donating to Support TCS

The company has not been able to do its usual season of shows over the past year, so we have had very little income.  But we do have ongoing fixed expenses, and thus financial losses.  So please donate as much as you can.  With your support we can maintain ourselves, until we can resume entertaining you in person.

Your donations are deductible on your federal income tax, as we are a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization. Thank you for your support!

There are three easy ways to send us monetary donations. Via PayPal, Venmo, or by Check.

With either PayPal or Venmo you can enter a Note with the payment. The note should include this information:

Your Name / Your Email Address / Reason and Amount.  For example:
Jane Doe  /  JDoe3@abc.com  /  Donation $30

Submit Your Play Reading Ideas

Greetings fellow playwrights and play readers! 

The play-reading committee of the Theater Company of Saugus would like to wish you well during these trying times and offer you a bit of escape. We had such an excellent time working on our recent virtual production of A Christmas Carol. Given the success of that project, we are currently beginning to search for plays for virtual reading sessions, or possibly a virtual springtime production. So, we need your help!

We are looking to you for new and interesting play submissions. Perhaps you are a playwright and would like to have your work read aloud by local artists. Or maybe you just love a particular play and would like the opportunity to take part in a reading or production of the piece. All people reading this are encouraged to submit plays! Whether you’re a longtime TCS member or just someone who happened to stumble upon this post. Either way, we anticipate your responses and look forward to looking through your submissions and working with each of you. 

Simply send us an email with your suggestions, questions, or comments. Use the subject line: Play Reading. Send to TCSaugus@gmail.com.

Thank you, and continue to stay healthy and safe, 

From: Matthew Garlin and Sean Perry, Co – Chair of TCS Play-Reading Committee 

A Virtual Staged Reading of A Christmas Carol is cast and in rehearsals!

Our Virtual Christmas Carol is in online rehearsals in a VERY QUICK casting/rehearsal process. TCS wanted to bring our supporters a holiday classic in this year of uncertainty. Based on the Dickens classic, it has been adapted by Matthew Garlin to work a little bit better with the Zoom world we all now live in.

We had so many interested actors that we have enough for TWO CASTS!

Take a look at our Christmas Carol Page, check out our cast, and performance dates.
The details about Donations for Tickets will be up on our Ticket Page by Monday night.
Please forgive us the delay as we acclimate to all the new ways of making theater happen in 2020.

We hope you enjoy this staged reading and the hard work our casts have put into these events in such a quick turn-around. We are excited about their enthusiasm as well as being able to bring you some comfort and joy during this holiday season.

Staged Reading – A Christmas Carol

Be part of our staged reading of A Christmas Carol – adapted and directed by Matthew Garlin, based on the book by Charles Dickens.

This perennial favorite will be presented as a staged reading due to the current restrictions in place regarding gatherings. Our preference is of course to be able to come together as a cast with a live audience – but our goal now is to keep our members, patrons, and performers safe.

If you are interested in being part of this performance – please visit the Auditions page for details.

Performances are slated to take place the weekend December 18-20 pending cast availability.
