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 our 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.

Check out our Summer Musical page for more info on Evita!
