It has been three weeks since we have shuttered our incredible production of Jesus Christ Superstar. I do want to thank those who attended our Friends & Family performance on Monday evening, our opening night on Wednesday, as well as Thursday that first week. I apologize for the rough times we had those first 3 performances due to major sound issues. We were very fortunate, through your continued generosity, to have been able to purchase all new wireless body microphones for our entire cast of twenty-one, only to have them arrive the afternoon of Friends & Family! We never had time to fire them up, hold a sound check with the cast, or rehearse with them. Circumstances forced us to go out there on Monday night with only a wing and a prayer; and in my opinion, we failed in the sound department miserably.
With a cast of twenty-one on a revolving stage of various levels, it took our cast...

“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....

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...
