About Us

The Theatre Company of Saugus (TCS) is the community theatre group serving Saugus, Massachusetts and surrounding communities. Founded in 1968 as the “Town-Criers”, we incorporated in 1990 as a not-for-profit corporation.

Our mission statement is “To foster and promote an appreciation of the theatre arts and to stimulate production of living theatre for the entertainment and cultural enrichment of the community.” We currently have about 100 members and do 3-5 productions each year.

TCS is a member of the Eastern Massachusetts Association of Community Theatres (EMACT).  TCS has at times been a member of the American Association of Community Theatre (AACT), and the New England Theatre Conference (NETC).  TCS is a member of StageSource.

We are a registered non-profit organization with tax-exempt 501 (c) (3) status.  Below is proof in the form of the search results from the IRS Exempt Organizations Select Check.  The “PC” means we are a Public Charity.


TCS has at times been supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, or our local cultural council.
