Posted

After 6 years and many productions, Silver City Community Theatre’s mission continues: to enrich, educate and entertain the Silver City and Grant County communities by providing a broad range of live theater experiences on a recurring, seasonal basis. On March 12,13 and 14, various events are open and part of their annual fund drive  in 2022.

Sat 3/12 @ 2:00 Live radio show taping of "My Favorite Husband" at Starlight Theatre, 1915 N. Gold St. (Corner of 20th and Gold), Silver City. 
 
Be the community in community theatre! Come be part of a live studio audience taping for Silver City Community Theatre Radio Hour, and watch our SCCT Radio Players take on a classic radio comedy script from 1950: My Favorite Husband.  The original radio show, starring Lucille Ball, evolved into the groundbreaking television sitcom, I Love Lucy.  Our local cast includes Sarah Thrasher, Billy Dominguez, Joe Navan, Carol Gadda, and Mel Gelb.  We need your audience laughter and applause in the radio show recording, to be aired on KURU 89.1 FM.  The show is open by invitation, a donation is appreciated.  To be added to the audience, RSVP to marlarbond@gmail.com
Also this is a great opportunity to subscribe or renew your SCCT membership!
 
 
Sun 3/13 @ 2:00 Finally we get to "Exit Laughing" at our Annual Business Meeting! Oasis Tea and Cofee, 714 N. Bullard St., Silver City.
 
Two years ago, the SCCT cast of Neil Simon's, "Exit Laughing" was days from opening a two week run at the El Sol Theatre, but the stay at home orders brought production to a halt.  This year our Annual Meeting will be hybrid (zoom and in person), and to honor the time and talent of the leading ladies (Phyllis McQuaide, Theresa Murphy, Linda Bluestone), and their director (Griffin Campbell), we invited them to revive one of their favorite scenes from "Exit Laughing" for our Annual Meeting entertainment!  We hope you can join us in-person or on zoom for this very special event. Subscribe or renew your SCCT membership and register for the Annual Meeting at silvercitycommunitytheater.com.

Starlight Theatre Players Joe Navan, Wendy Spurgeon, and Mia Riley offer up a powerful staged reading in support of SCCT Membership.  “What the Constitution Means to Me” is a 2017 American play by Heidi Schreck.  The play premiered on Broadway on March 31, 2019 at the Hayes Theater, with Schreck herself in the leading role. Over the course of the play, Schreck addresses themes such as women's rights, immigration, domestic abuse, and the history of the United States.  Schreck varies the time period in which the play takes place, performing some scenes as her modern self and others as her fifteen-year-old self-participating in Constitutional debate contests. “What the Constitution Means to Me” has received accolades including nomination for Best Play in the 73rd Tony Awards and a finalist spot for the 2019 Pulitzer Prize in Drama.
