COMMUNITY THEATRE CLUB

What a great group of actors!!! This fall we have a cast of 18.  Right now, we are in the initial stages of “blocking” and “learning our lines”.  And, of course, actually becoming our Character for a couple hours every Tuesday night!   Our Script is brand new………NEW YORK OR BUST!!!!!   Ever been on a high school trip?   Well, this is the trip of a life time for an excited bunch of high schoolers from  Kennebeccasis,  New Brunswick.

Be sure you have Dress Rehearsal dates on your 2020 calendar. They are compulsory – no exceptions!   Saturday, February 22, 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.; Saturday, February 29, 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.;   Sunday, March 1, 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Our Performance date is Friday, March 6, 2020, at 7:30 p.m., at Trinity United Church.          

For any new readers who might be looking at my Blog, this paragraph is for you. Do you love being on stage; the thrill of a performance; turning your imagination loose; having fun???  You would enjoy Guelph United Performers! Just send me an e-mail and let me know you are interested – I will definitely put your name on my list so you receive updated information about us.  Come and see our Performance on March 6. See the kind of Show we produce!  If you are 11 to 17 years old, want to grow in drama skills, I encourage you to discover GUP – Community Theatre Club.

COMMUNITY CHILDREN’S CHOIR

Our fall session of Community Children’s Choir is over for 2019. This Choir of 20 boys and girls was wonderful!  We certainly had the opportunity to get into the Christmas Spirit by singing, as special guests, at Trinity United Church on Sunday, December 8.  First, at their Family Christmas Service at 10:00 a.m., and, then, in the evening at the Trinity United Church Choir’s annual Christmas Performance, at 7:00 p.m.   What a big day that was!!!! “CARROLING, CARROLING”, and “WE NEED A LITTLE CHRISTMAS” never sounded better!  We are so proud of our singers!

Our Community Children’s Choir is free for all boys and girls, ages 6 to 12, in our community. Just come and sing!!!!  No charge for music lessons – what a deal!  We will be offering another session in the Spring 2020.

COMMUNITY THEATRE CAMP:

I have been having quick little thoughts about Theatre Camp. So much fun to look forward to!  Theatre Camp always happens in July.  2020 camps will run July 6 to 10, and July 20 to 24.  Morning Camp for ages 6 to 10, 9:00 a.m. to noon;  Afternoon Camp for ages 11 to 16, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
