New At The Guild!

“Everything I ever did, I did across a barrier of fear.”  --Eleanor Roosevelt 

Across a Barrier of Fear: The Life of Eleanor Roosevelt is a one-woman performance written by Sharon Whitney and starring Jane VanBoskirk. The play’s title is born of a quote by the former First Lady who comes alive in Whitney’s script.  The play traces her life from her childhood as an orphan and her schooling in London, to her marriage to Franklin Delano Roosevelt and beyond.  It takes the audience through political campaigns, four terms as First Lady and, finally, to Eleanor’s place on the world stage after her husband’s death.  

Refreshments will be served in the courtyard before the performance.  This event is sponsored by the Vero Beach American Association of University Women, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.  All proceeds support scholarships, grants and programs for women and girls in Indian River County....

The rain may never fall till after sundown,

By eight the morning fog must disappear.

In short there’s simply not

A more congenial spot

Than here in Camelot!

Who can forget the lush musical sounds of Lerner & Loewe’s beloved score from Camelot? Those unforgettable melodies from the legendary Broadway hit will fill the Vero Beach Theatre Guild’s cozy auditorium when the show opens on November 13 at 2020 San Juan Avenue, Vero Beach just in time to celebrate the coming holidays.

October 4-6, 2019 The Guild will feature a Reader's Theatre production of Arthur Miller's "The Crucible," directed by Tevin Brown. 

Set in Massachusetts during the 1692 Salem Witch Trials, the story captures a time when paranoia, hysteria and deceit gripped the Puritan towns of New England.  Now considered modern classic theater, Miller’s play was written during the “Red Scare,” using the witch trials as a metaphor for the “witch hunts” for communists in America. 

Miller wrote the play as an allegory for McCarthyism, when the United States government persecuted people accused of being communists. Miller was questioned by the House of Representatives' Committee on Un-American Activities in 1956 and convicted of contempt of Congress for refusing to identify others present at meetings he had attended.

The play was first performed at the Martin Beck Theatre on Broadway on January 2...

“A Bench in the Sun” made its debut in 1999 at the Westport Playhouse starring comedic icon Tim Conway along with Paxton Whitehead and Betsy Palmer.   Clark’s script is full of clever one liners, musings about the seasons of life, tender moments- including a dance lesson, and reflections upon world changes that affect old folks. 

Clark began his career writing for TV during the '60s, including such shows as The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour and The Danny Kaye Show. He wrote plays in the '70s with fellow writer Sam Bobrick. Their first play, “Norman, Is That You?,” premiered on Broadway at the Lyceum Theatre on February 19, 1970. The two men went on to write several more plays together, including “No Hard Feelings” (1973), “Murder at the Howard Johnson's” (1979), and “Wally's Café” (1981). Clark remained active in writing for television and film up through the early 1990s. His many television credits inclu...
