Foley Workshop – Sun, Oct 28

sound-speaker-radio-microphone

In this workshop attendees will be learning about the art of foley work. It has emerged as a topic given the radio theme of our December production of It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play. Sound-effects played a huge part in live radio broadcasts and were not generally pre-recorded.

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

TCS Lighting Workshops – Aug 13 & 14

Have you ever wanted to know more about the art of lighting? How are lighting equipment locations and angles chosen? How many lights are two many lights to wire together? How simple or complicated is a light board? How did they do all of it before computers?

TCS will be hosting two Lighting Workshops on Monday and Tuesday, August 13 and 14 at 7:00PM at the American Legion in Saugus. Monday’s session will be hands on and you will actually hang lights. Tuesday’s session will be more the designer side of the experience.

Crafting with CreAtive CreAtions

With the holiday season upon us, we start to wrack our brains to figure out a perfect gift for that special someone.  As Sister Hubert said last year in Nuncrackers “It’s better to give than it is to receive!”  So what’s a better gift than something you made with your own two hands?!  Amanda Allen the creAtor of CreAtive CreAtions will be providing a class to do just that!!

On Sunday 29 November 2015 at 5 PM.  At 85 Chestnut Street  /  Saugus, Massachusetts.  We will be hosting a class where we will be creating our own ornaments out of our favorite recycled papers!  Music, books, comic books, scrap book paper, etc you name it!!

For $12 we will provide the materials to make two ornaments, and some light refreshments.  Email  tcsaugus@gmail.com to RSVP by November 22, 2015 and only pay $10!

We will provide some paper items like sheet music, funny pages, comic books, etc.  However, if you have certain paper that you want turned into an ornament please feel free to do so!  Also if you own your own glue gun bring that as well!!

All proceeds to benefit our upcoming production of Nunsense: The Mega Musical.
