Artistic Staff needed for 2017-2018 season

At our Annual General Membership Meeting on 11 December 2016, we approved the plan for the shows that we will present for the next season in 2017-2018.  Now we need to find directors, choreographers, and musical directors for these shows.

  1. We intend to bring a show to the EMACT Festival in June 2017.  Probably with a prior public performance in Saugus.  We are working on the musical version of 13 Things about Ed Carpolatti.  (We have a director and musical director.)
  2. The next in our series of Youth Theatre Workshops, in July 2017.  A junior musical show, to be determined.  (We probably have the staff for this.)
  3. The Halloween 2017 season show.  This was going to be Bat Boy, the popular musical about a family that adopts a bat boy, by the same authors as Heathers.  But another nearby group is doing this show, so we need to find another, preferably a musical.  We are in need of a Director and a Choreographer.  We may already have a musical director.  (The alternate, if we decide to do a play rather than a musical, would be The Woman in Black, a mystery thriller play.)
  4. The holiday season 2017 show.  This will be A Charlie Brown Christmas, a one-act musical with a cast of children.  This might be paired with a one-act play The Gift of the Magi, with two adults.  We are in need of Directors, a Choreographer, and a Musical Director.  (The alternate would be The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, a one-act play with children and adults.)
  5. The winter season show, in early 2018.  The play Almost, Maine.  A popular comedy about characters in love in the neighboring stage of Maine.  We are in need of a Director.  (The alternate, if we need a second musical in the season, would be The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.)
  6. Another Nunsense show in spring 2018, continuing the series.  Nunsense Jamboree features the funny nuns and country music.  We are in need of a Musical Director and a Choreographer.  We probably have a director.

We are also at present still in need of a Choreographer for this season’s production of Nunsense 2 in spring 2017.  Honorariums are given for the artistic staff positions.

And of course we will need supporting staff for all of these shows:  producers, stage managers, set builders, and designers for sets, costumes, lighting, props, etc.

If you are interested in any of these positions, please contact us at TCSaugus@gmail.com.  Please attach a theatre resume, and a letter indicating which jobs and shows you are interested in.  We will arrange for an interview with our board of directors.  Thank you!

Car Wash 2014

TCS will hold our annual summer Car Wash on Saturday, July 19, 2014 from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM.  The location is the Saugus Senior Center, 466 Central Street.

Only $5 to wash your car, or $7 for SUVs, trucks or vans.  $1 to clean inside windows.

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.
