The BTG produces one MAINSTAGE production each year. Annual Dinner Theatres provide a great “taste” of our talents in a smaller venue. We often encourage new members to direct one-act plays for these dinner theatres — it’s also a fabulous opportunity for our actors to get “up close and personal” with their audiences in a friendly and enjoyable setting.
In 1933, Dr. J. L. (Jack) Carroll decided it was time that the “St. Peter’s Players” should become The Theatre Guild of Brockville. Back in those days, we were the only show in town! Membership was $2.00 a year! Membership today isn’t that much more! Check out our “membership” link for more information. Back in the day, we spent our time performing readings and productions and attending seminars conducted by local historians and travellers at Commonwealth Public School and The Collegiate (now known as Brockville Collegiate Institute).
When the city of Brockville acquired The Civic Auditorium (now known as The Brockville Arts Centre, King Street West), the Brockville Theatre Guild had a larger stage on which to produce their presentations.
Thanks to a devoted team of volunteers and fund raisers, 1983 saw the opening of the Musi-Theatre Building – a facility attached to the BAC which now houses all of our costumes, props and sets. It also has provided the BTG members with a venue for rehearsal.
We thank all of our devoted members – past and present – for their support. If you are new to town, or interested in becoming a member of the BTG, we would WELCOME you with open arms! Contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be in touch!
