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.
Presented by TGS in conjunction with the 350th Anniversary Celebration of Simsbury, CT.
Performances: April 30, May 1, 2, 3, 2020 (Eno Memorial Hall)
June 18, 2020 (Simsbury Meadows Performing Arts Center)
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!!

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
