Open auditions for our next main series production, Our Town, will be Sunday and Monday, February 15 and 16 at 7 p.m. at the theatre. Leon Perkins is directing the show. (Please note that because of Valentine's Day being on Sunday, auditions have been scheduled for Monday and Tuesday.)
Our Town, by American playwright Thornton Wilder, tells the story of the fictional American small town of Grover’s Corners between 1901 and 1913 through the everyday lives of its citizens. It was first performed at McCarter Theatre in Princeton, New Jersey in 1938. It later went on to success on Broadway and won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
You do not have to be a member of Temple Civic Theatre to audition or work on a crew. Auditions will utilize cold readings from the script. Performances are April 1-3 and 7-10.

Installation of a new roof for the Temple Civic Theatre building began February 9, 2016. The new roof was made possible by a generous grant from the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation. We've had severe roof leak problems for years, but this new white, energy-efficient Dura-Last roof will help solve the problem. Water leaks destroyed the wooden floor in the Saulsbury Room, which will now need to be refurbished. The Saulsbury Room serves as a reception area, art display area and rehearsal hall.
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.

On December 29, Temple High School Thespians gave a fresh coat of paint to the Temple Civic Theatre auditorium. This was a community service project of the local Thespian Troupe. The group was selected as one of only seven All-Star Troupes (out of 229 troupes) at the recent Texas Thespian convention and competition.
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!
