Get ready for a summer workshop like no other this year at Temple Civic Theatre! "ImProv The Woods" will teach students about the world of improvisation through fun games and workshops.

Performances from our two-week Summer Youth Camp will be August 14th through August 16th. Reserved seat tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for youth (14 and younger). The box office opens Tuesday, August 11. Box office hours are Tuesday through Friday from 9:30 to 1:30, and one hour before each performance.
The camp sessions for the students will be Monday-Friday, August 3-16. The camp is broken down into two age groups, based on the student's grade level in Fall 2015. The younger group is grades 2 through 5. The older group is grades 6 through 12. This year's camp will split the days from August 3rd through the 7th and August 10th with two workshops. The younger student workshop will meet from 10 am to 12:30 pm and the older student workshop will meet from 1 pm to 5 pm. The entire cast will come together beginning August 11th and go through to the last performance on August 16th.

Amazon is offering a program called "Amazon Smile" where they will donate 0.5% of your purchases to Temple Civic Theatre. It won't cost you a thing because Amazon is donating all the money, and it's a great way to help the theatre.
The only catch is you have to start your online shopping at smile.amazon.com instead of the normal www.amazon.com.
The first time you go to smile.amazon.com, you'll select the organization you want Amazon to support. By the way, they have our name spelled "Temple Civic Theater".
If you are a Google Chrome user, you can also download the Smile Always plug-in that will make sure you are always redirected to smile.amazon.com without having to think about it!

What is the best bargain in arts organization program advertising? The answer is easy: Temple Civic Theatre. That's because main series productions at Temple Civic Theatre perform SEVEN DIFFERENT TIMES for each show.
We're beginning to sell ads for the 2014-15 Main Series season. Ads begin as low as $9.29 per performance when you buy the entire season of 42 performances. You also receive a substantial discount for purchasing an ad for the entire season instead of for just one show. Please click the PDF file below for more information.
ONLINE TICKET RESERVATIONS AND SALES -- Beginning September 2, 2014, tickets for ALL six main-series shows in the 2014-15 season will be available. This is online only. Season members may reserve seats using their coupon code or tickets may be purchased with a credit card. By choosing to use the online system, you will no longer have to wait for the box office to open before each show.
BOX OFFICE (with a live person assisting customers) will open 10 days before each main-series show begins and continue through the final performance of that show. Box office hours will continue to be Tuesday-Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and one hour before each performance. Box office personnel will be able to help you with tickets for any of the six main-series shows.
SAME SEAT / SAME DAY PATRONS -- You will be the only members able to make your seat reservations prior to September 2 each year, and have the exact same seats for all six main-series shows. In Summer 2015, when the new season goes on sale, we will protect your current seats until September 1 and give you the opportunity to renew those seats before anyone else can take them.
