40th Anniversary Season

Come join the Geneva Theatre Guild in our 40th Anniversary Season. It is always a good time to join us, whether it be onstage or backstage, the Geneva Theatre Guild is always looking for Actors, Directors, Backstage crew and Board Members.

Geneva Theatre Guild Presents…

The Geneva Theatre Guild is happy to announce it’s 40th Anniversary Summer Musical as Evita! When deciding on this particular show the board decided to go back to it’s roots and pick a show from the 70s, when the board was founded. We received many wonderful proposals from directors for this show and are glad to announce that this year’s summer musical will be directed by non other than Geneva native, Pamela Rapoza! We are very glad she could join us in our anniversary production after having worked with the guild many times in the past.

Fall Productions

The 40th Anniversary is also a time for turning over a new leaf in the Geneva Theatre Guild. As you may know we have undergone a major re-branding within the last year. From new logos, posters and even our website, we have made it our duty to reach out more to our community within the coming years. Unfortunately, due to the massive overhaul we will not be producing a fall show this year.

Winter/Spring Productions

The Geneva Theatre Guild is accepting proposals for its 40th season (January to December 2018).

While all proposals will be considered, Geneva Theatre Guild is especially interested in shows written during, premiered during, or set in the 1970s to celebrate the decade the group was established.

Show dates considered will be January to early June and September to December 2018. No summer productions will be considered as Evita has already been scheduled for August 2018. Directors are encouraged to suggest venues throughout Geneva for their productions.

Proposal packets can be found on the group’s website, http://genevatheatreguild.org/get-involved/forms/, and should include a vision statement, suggested budget and staff, as well as a resume. A copy of the script should also be included.

Email or mail the proposal to the Geneva Theatre Guild no later than October 1stgenevatheatreguild@gmail.com

39th Season

The 2016-2017 season has closed, and what a season it was! Below you’ll find some notes about what happened in the Geneva Theatre Guild (but visit group pages to see more about the shows from Geneva Theatre Guild Youth Theatre and the Nancy Curvin Playground Players).

We won’t be gone long! Keep your eyes and ears open for news about what’s coming next in our 40th season.

Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And then some!)

Thank you everyone for making Every Christmas Story Ever Told so enjoyable! Thanks to theatre fans who attended our Community Giving Matinee, we were able to donate $100 to the Geneva Community Center

Playwrights/Playreadings

Thanks to you all for an amazing Playwrights/Playreadings! Unfortunately, none of our playwrights (Robin Pond, Len Cuthbert, and Kat Meads) could join us this year, but “Roses for the Sweetheart,” “Posthumous Friends,” “Matched,” and “Missing” all proved to be food for thought, and even a little laughter.

 

Miracle on South Division Street

Unfortunately, we were unable to share “Miracle on South Division Street” with you this year. We were sad but pushed ahead to have a great, spectacular Young Frankenstein.

Nancy Curvin Playground Players presents… Country-Ella!   

Directed by Luis Figueroa and Nicolette Nault, “Country-Ella”, is the story of Cinderella with a bit of a country twist. The troupe traveled all around the Geneva and Finger Lakes area to bring this wonderful re-telling of the classic story to kids and adults everywhere.

The show was a fantastic success and we hope to see even more come out for next year!

The Summer Musical was “Young Frankenstein”

Directed by Steve Duprey, “Young Frankenstein”  was be presented at the Smith Opera House and a smashing success! (Several fans even wrote to us to tell us that they enjoyed the show.)

We had profound support from so many individuals and businesses in our community. We couldn’t have done it without you!
