Temple Civic Theatre's 5th Annual Mother & Son Dance will be Saturday, May 6, 2017, at the Bell County Expo Center. Tickets are now available by CLICKING HERE or contacting the TCT Box Office, 254-778-4751. Box office hours are Tuesday-Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
When ordering tickets online, you will receive a receipt for your purchase. You will not receive an actual ticket. We will have a list of names to be checked at the door. Your emailed receipt serves as your proof of purchase. There is a no refund policy.
Tickets are $15 per person. Last year, the event was SOLD OUT, so please order your tickets early. If not sold out, tickets at the door will be $20 per person. If ordering online, we are offering a set of two tickets. This saves $1 on the convenience charges.
DJ Johnny Bravo will be providing music. A photographer will be available if you want to purchase photos to capture the memories. Light snacks and beverages are included. There will be a silent auction with items geared to both moms and sons. Sponsorship opportunities are also available by contacting the theatre business office.
Our next main-series production, The 39 Steps, is a comedic spoof of the classic 1935 Alfred Hitchcock film. Performances are May 19, 20, 26, 27 (8 p.m.), May 25 (7 p.m.) and May 21 and 28 (2:30 p.m.)
The brilliantly madcap story follows our dashing hero, Richard Hannay (Scott Searles), as he races to solve the mystery of The 39 Steps. Kayla Stewart plays the part of three different women with three different accents. Darren Walker and Jonathan Spear play every other character in the show (heroes, villains, men, women, children and even the occasional inanimate object). In the script, they are referred to as the two clowns.
Reserved seat tickets are $20 for adults and $12 for students and children. They are available online 24/7. The box office, staffed by a live person, opens on Tuesday, May 9. Box office hours are Tuesday-Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and one hour before each performance.
Production staff includes Natasha Tolleson, director; Leon Perkins, stage manager; Ryan Beimer, interim technical director; Tim Locke, costume designer; Tanya McMillan, hair and make-up designer; Jesse Wyman, lighting designer; and Jody Donaldson, sound designer.
The film's serious spy story is played mainly for laughs, and the script is full of allusions to (and puns on the titles of) other Alfred Hitchcock films, including Strangers on a Train, Rear Window, Psycho, Vertigo and North by Northwest.
The 2008 Roundabout Broadway production won the 2008 Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience. It also won two Tony Awards and was nominated for four other Tonys.
Each year, Temple Civic Theatre presents a scholarship to a graduating high school senior from a Bell County school who will be pursuing a theatre-related field of study.

Open auditions for our summer musical, Hairspray, will be Sunday & Monday, June 4 & 5, at 7 p.m. at the theatre. There are many roles for men, women and students (high school age and older). We especially need African-American actors and actresses. A younger African-American girl is needed to portray Little Inez.
Auditioners are asked to prepare a brief song (32 bars or less) that shows off their voice. We'll have an audition pianist (bring your sheet music) and a CD player (with auxiliary cord) on hand, but you may also bring your own electronic playback device. We will use cold readings from the script and there will also be a movement exercise — so wear comfortable clothes.
Choreographer will be JoAnna Langthorn. Musical Director will be Benjamin Irom. Applications to work on the crews will also be taken during auditions.

You do not have to be a member of Temple Civic Theatre to audition. There is no audition fee. Rehearsals are typically Sunday through Thursday evenings except the weekend before opening night. Performance dates are July 14-16, 20-23, 28-29.
A section of 13th Street in front of the theatre is under construction, but you can still get to the theatre parking lot. The portion of 13th Street (from the Loop access road toward the theatre) that was previously closed is now open again.
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".
Thanks for your support!
