TCS will be hosting a Foley Workshop on Sunday, October 28 at 10:30AM at the American Legion in Saugus.

LIZZIE Review & Closing Weekend

The Saugus Advertiser freelance reviewer Neil Zolot attended Saturday, October 13th’s full house performance of LIZZIE.

“Although it continues the company’s run of horror and mystery shows in October, the production is as much a rock concert as a musical, maybe more so, with a cast of four women backed by an onstage five piece rock band that sounded like a heavy metal band at times and a new wave/punk band at others.”

He also had the opportunity to speak cast members as well as artistic staff. “’I love it,’” Sliby (Lizzie) said of the show. “’It’s definitely different but that’s what I love about it. You let go and feel the music. I got into it.’”

Dine-Out and Support Community Theatre – Oct 17 & 21

Dine and Fundraise!

Join our “Dough-Raiser”

TCS is partnering with California Pizza Kitchen of Lynnfield to raise some “dough” to help support our operating expenses throughout the season. TCS is a Massachusetts registered non-profit local community theatre company run completely by volunteers. Ticket sales help to cover most of the the costs involved in putting on a production, but don’t begin to pay for the day to day expenses (rental space, equipment, supplies, etc.). By doing something so simple as eating with friends and family you’ll be helping support a local arts organization.
We hope to see you on Wednesday or Sunday!
TCS Board Members will be there Wednesday evening and on Sunday,
a number of LIZZIE cast and crew will be there after strike is over.
Come and say hello!

When:
Wednesday, October 17 – 11AM to 10PM
Sunday, October 21 – 11AM to 10PM

Where:
California Pizza Kitchen
1150 Market Street
Lynnfield, MA 01940

How does it work?
You dine at CPK and 20% of all your food and beverage sales will be donated to TCS! (excluding tax, gratuity, gift card and retail purchases)

What do you need to do?
When you are ordering, make sure to mention that you are there to support Theatre Company of Saugus and use your mobile device to show the official flyer to your server or you can print it out at home and bring it with you. (It is also posted on our Facebook page and if you are on our email list – you received it on Wed, Oct 17.)

You can support TCS for dine-in, take-out, and catering purchases on both days.
