Travelling Troupes

 

Clearview Community Theatre Travelling Troupes – Winter/Spring 2019

What The Travelling Troupes have three main functions: 1) to take musical theatre to people who otherwise may not be able to attend our large stage shows, 2) to provide an additional musical theatre experience for our members without the need to audition and 3) to prepare a program of entertainment for our spring fundraising dinner/concert. Our troupes will be available to perform in nursing homes, senior’s complexes, service clubs and other organizations requesting a short musical presentation.

There are some costs associated with the Troupes:

1)     Any person associated with the production of our travelling troupes must be a member of our theatre group. Current memberships are valid from July 1st, 2018 to June 30th, 2019. Membership costs are: single $25.00 and family $60.00. If you bought a membership for ‘Pirates of Penzance’ or the Ukulele Troupe last fall then you are covered.

2)     There will be an additional $30.00 production cost for each of the Youth, Children’s and Open Troupe. This will cover costs associated with the purchase of music and any photo-copying and hall use.

3)     There will be an additional $25.00 production cost for the Ukulele Troupe. This will cover costs associated with photo-copying, hall use and purchasing of gear such as music stands.

4)     Open, Ukulele & Youth Troupe members will be expected to purchase a performance show shirt for about $35.00.
