The show’s director is Rob Wilds, who has a master’s and bachelor’s degree in communications. At TCT, Rob previously directed The Exact Center of the Universe and That Championship Season. Rob lives in Tennessee where he serves as host and producer of the “Tennessee Crossroads” television series on PBS stations across the state. He has appeared in over 50 drama, comedy and musical stage productions, including TCT’s 1970 production of Camelot.
Sweet-natured Alice Sycamore (Alexzandria Siprian) falls for a rich businessman’s son Tony Kirby (Herbert Clardy). She invites her snooty prospective in-laws to dinner to give their blessing to the marriage. The Kirbys are a wealthy, stuffy family of great self-importance, while the Sycamores are a collection of good-hearted lunatics where everyone does just what he or she pleases. When the two families come together, lifestyle and philosophy collide head-on with great fun.
The movie version of the play was directed by Frank Capra and included Jimmy Stewart, Lionel Barrymore and Ann Miller.

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!

Did you know that curtain time for our Thursday night main-series productions is an hour earlier than usual — beginning at 7 p.m. instead of the normal time. This was designed for audience members who might want to get home a little earlier than usual. It was also thought that families with children might benefit from the earlier time.
