Car Wash 2017

TCS will hold our annual summer Car Wash on Saturday 29 July 2017 from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM.  The location is the Saugus Senior Center, 466 Central Street, near Hurd Avenue.

Only $5 to wash your car, or $7 for SUVs, trucks or vans.  Extra to clean inside windows.

It is going to be a hot day.  If you would like us to spray you with the hose, there is only a small charge.

You will be attended by the waterfowl that recently appeared in our production of Honk! Jr., including ducks, geese, swans, as well as a turkey, a cat, and a bullfrog.

Come help us out and have some good clean fun!  If you are interested in assisting, email us at tcsaugus@gmail.com.

But even if you can’t come down and help wash, bring your car down so we can clean it up for you.  Your car is dirty and needs washing.

Proceeds will benefit our summer Youth Theatre Workshop 2017.

Fundraising for New Dimmers

The Theatre Company of Saugus (TCS) is a local non-profit community theatre in its 49th season of entertaining theater goers in and around the North Shore.  We produce four to five shows a year ranging from covering the spectrum from comedy to tragedy in classic and more modern portrayals.  We do our best to keep our ticket prices affordable and theatre welcoming to families with the help of local sponsors, advertisers & friends, such as yourself.

People come from all around Boston and the North Shore to both audition for as well as attend our productions. Our membership is diverse, with actors, stage crew, and production staff of all ages; some of whom have been with the company since its conception and others who haven’t entered preschool yet. We welcome all to join our theatre family.

We have an urgent need right now.  For the past several years we have been renting the lighting dimmers that we use for each show.  This was a necessity due to the uncertainty of where we would be housed.  Unfortunately, it is not cost-effective in the long run.  The time has come to purchase our own dimmers, and have them available to us whenever needed.   These dimmers work with the modern lighting control board that we purchased a few years ago.

Each dimmer has six control channels, which is adequate for some plays with just a few scenes. We can use one dimmer for a play such as Lost in Yonkers.  But for a more complex show, such as Nunsense 2 (which is coming up later this season) we will need all twelve channels provided by two dimmers.  We have purchased one dimmer for Lost in Yonkers.  Each dimmer costs around $962.  In addition to that figure, there is also the cost for the necessary connecting cables.  Our current goal is to raise $2000 to cover some of the cost for two lighting dimmers and the connecting cables.

Won’t you help us achieve our goal, to be able to continue to provide quality and enriching entertainment for the community, by sponsoring the purchase of our needed new lighting equipment?  We are a certified 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, and your donations are tax-deductible.  All donators are credited in the playbill programs for our show.  Sponsor benefits include ads in the programs, tickets to shows, and inclusion in our publicity.

We are using a crowdfunding service to make donations easy.  To donate please click here.  Thank you for your support!

Out of the Darkness

Thank you for supporting TCS as we walk to fight suicide in the Out of the Darkness North Shore Walk.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is the leader in the fight against suicide. They fund research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss. AFSP has local chapters in all 50 states.

They held a sponsored walk on the North Shore, and TCS participated.  The walk was on Saturday 24 September 2016, starting at 10:00 AM at the Common on Lake Quannapowitt in Wakefield.

The TCS team raised $625 in sponsored donations, exceeding their fundraising goal.

Thanks to Walkers and Donors like you, AFSP has been able to set a goal to reduce the annual suicide rate 20% by 2025.

Theatre Company of Saugus and the cast and crew of Heathers: the Musical walked as a team this year.  Heathers, although set in the 1980s, deals with many relevant difficult issues, which we as a company plan to use our production and community platform to help “Shine a Light” on.  Suicide, mental illness, bullying, gun violence, to name a few, are issues that darkened our society then, and sadly still do today.  We want to “Shine” our light, as we walk “Out of the Darkness”. 

We joined the community of nearly 250 thousand people walking in hundreds of cities across the country in support of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s mission to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide.

Now that the walk is done, come see our production of Heathers the Musical, and see how it deals with the issues created by mean kids in high school.
