In the next few, months, we will reveal a new website for Temple Civic Theatre, and with that, a new name: www.TempleCivicTheatre.org
We will be retiring www.ArtsTemple.com. Watch for more details.
Temple Civic Theatre will present Aesop's Fable-ous Christmas Tree as our Christmas Youth Production. The show is directed by Betsi Chamlee. Performance dates are Friday, December 11, at 7:30 p.m. with Saturday (Dec. 12) and Sunday (Dec. 13) performances at 2:30 p.m.. Tickets are $8 for children (14 and under) and $15 for adults.
When Aesop's fables are given a holiday spin, you'll get a mash-up of The Twelve Days of Christmas and The Tortoise and the Hare, where the six birds of Christmas compete in a comical race — with the turtle dove winning, of course; a tiny snow mouse teaches the abominable snowman that little friends may prove great friends; Ebenezer Scrooge realizes that wealth unused might as well not exist; Santa's elves dream of a life outside the workshop as they sing a "patter poem" about their ideal careers; and even though the eight reindeer panic when Rudolph gets a cold in the nose, they learn that necessity is the mother of invention. A dozen vignettes illuminate important life lessons by reinventing the classic fables, blending humor, rhythmic elements, rapping, puppetry, poetry, song and storytelling to create a fast-paced, fun-filled show that's filled with Christmas spirit.
Auditions for our next main-series show, Circle Mirror Transformation, will be Sunday and Monday, December 13 and 14, at 7 p.m. at the theatre. Betsi Chamlee will direct the show.
We need actors who can "hula-hoop". During auditions, there will be cold readings from the script and some movement exercises.
In an artsy small town, an unlikely collection of strangers sign up for Marty's "Adult Creative Drama" class. Unfolding like a charmingly funny indie film, the group plays Marty's imaginative (and sometimes awkward) theatre games. But as their relationships develop over the course of the summer, the seemingly silly games generate some real-life drama.
This delightful comedy from new playwright Annie Baker landed on Top Ten lists of The New York Times and The New Yorker for 2010.
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!
Open auditions are typically held on Sunday and Mondays at 7 p.m. at the theatre. You do not have to be a member of Temple Civic Theatre to audition or appear in a show. Auditions are normally cold readings from the script. For musicals, there will also be a singing audition and a movement audition.

The internationally popular game is now a fun filled musical which brings the world's best known suspects to life and invites the audience to help solve the mystery: Who killed Mr. Boddy, in what room and with what weapon. The audience receives forms to help them deduce the solution from clues given throughout the fun filled evening. Three audience members choose from cards representing the potential murderers, weapons and rooms; there are 216 possible solutions! Only one hard nosed female detective is qualified to unravel the merry mayhem. Comic antics, witty lyrics and a beguiling score carry the investigation from room to room. Even after the culprit confesses, a surprise twist delights the audience.
