A note from the Theatre Guild of Simsbury
Never in our wildest dreams would this be our spring 2020. But here we all are, social distancing and TGS, like other organizations, is making alternative plans amid this wait and see health crisis. Our original plan to produce “Our Town: Simsbury” with early May show dates is no longer feasible due to safety of our audience, cast and crew. We’re looking at all options and will let you know as soon as plans are finalized. The best laid plans…
In the meantime, if you’re looking to take a stroll down memory lane, take this time to access our archive site of all past shows at http://tgssimsburyarchives.weebly.com/ This site is painstakingly updated after every show by board member Doreen Cohn. Feel free to click on the “More” link and add memories to this site!
Because of all of you and your support of our past programs, we will be financially able to weather the storm, meeting our obligations in the months to come.
Missing all the times we could have had together but oh so grateful for the times we have had. Thank you for your patience as the board works through these uncertain times. Stay well.
-Donna Sennott and the Theatre Guild of Simsbury Board

A fictional play, similar in style and structure to Thornton Wilder’s iconic 1938 play, Our Town.
Our Town: Simsbury celebrates the small town of Simsbury, Connecticut, with familiar locales and a varied cast of characters, including two ten-year-old children, a spirited group of “Simsbury Neighbors” and a mama bear and her cub. The heart of the play reveals itself in interwoven stores of small-town life, human struggle and, ultimately, human connection.

The Staged Reading Series
The Theatre Guild of Simsbury’s Staged Reading Series at McLean is the perfect opportunity for actors of all ages and experience levels. Each staged reading will provide actors with the opportunity to take part in a short-term production that is ideal for those who are unable to commit to a full play or musical, those who are new to the stage and seasoned actors looking for their next production. Each show will have a total of six rehearsals (including an open dress rehearsal for McLean residents) and one performance open to the public.. More
As a non-profit we depend on your support. Would you help make it possible for TGS to continue performing in the years ahead?
Preparing a show is Tricky business. TGS build's their sets and gathers props, costumes etc. at a warehouse on Herman Drive in Simsbury. Then on the Saturday of the week prior to opening, the cast and crew gather to move in costumes, sets, props and furnishings to Simsbury High School. Take a look at the videos below to get a glimpse at how this all works!!
