Auditions are July 27 & 28, 2016.  We have added an additional Audition date, on Sunday 31 July, because of extraordinary demand.  Appointments are required.  The performance dates are October 21-30.

There are roles for all ages.  There are roles for nine females and eight males.  Most characters appear to be of high-school age, with a few middle-aged grownups.

Hey, Look What I Can Do! A Youth Talent Showcase

We are putting together a talent show for any youth who would like to showcase a talent of theirs.  The performance dates are Friday & Saturday 14 & 15 June 2013.  Performers are kids ages 18 and under.  We are looking for talents of all kinds, including but not limited to singing, dancing, improvisation, martial arts, story telling, etc.  Rehearsals will occur during May and June, in one hour increments on a schedule to be determined.  Rehearsals will be during our usual time slots:  Sundays 6-9 PM, Tuesdays 7-10 PM, Thursdays 7-10 PM.  The facilitator will be Jessica Stockton, with help from other TCS members and parents.  Tickets for the performances will cost $10. 

We are pleased to announce our musical director / accompanist for the show:  Suzi Jalbert!  She just musically directed our spectacular hit A Year With Frog and Toad.

The audition dates for the talent show are Tuesday & Thursday 14 & 16 May 2013, starting at 6:30 PM.  The location is the East Saugus United Methodist Church at 85 Chestnut Street / Saugus, MA.  (See our Directions page.)

Here are some guidelines to consider when thinking of your talent:

  1. Individuals, duos, or groups are all allowed to audition their act.
  2. Acts are to fit into a 5–10 minute slot. No longer than 10 minutes with reasonable exception.
  3. Acts must be appropriate for all ages. Nothing crude or offensive.
  4. You may audition without a specific talent to be part of a separate skit group.
  5. Those auditioning for specific talents may also apply to be in the skit crew.
  6. Pianist will be provided, but any other accompaniment will need to be provided by performer.
  7. Performers must provide all materials for their talent (sheet music, costumes, recordings etc.  But if TCS has a costume or prop that a performer would like to use they may request to use it.)
