A Message About COVID-19
We are excited to be returning to live outdoor theater with The Lion in Winter, running July 23-30, 2021. The production will celebrate our 21st anniversary of Theater in the Park.
During the pandemic, live indoor theatrical performances were suspended, but we were proud to offer online options filmed via Zoom and from the Guild Theater under proper safety protocols. These included both theater and music performances. The Guild will continue to monitor the situation and reevaluate as the information about COVID-19 evolves. Our hope is to return to live indoor theater for the 2021-22 season.
Thank you so much for your patience and understanding. We wish you peace, joy, and good health. We are so excited to see you again at the Guild Theater!
The Guild’s Theater Program produces five main stage plays each season in our 118 seat theater, and is a leading community theater in our region. Each season features an exceptionally broad range of productions programmed around a given theme including comedy, drama and musical theater.
Professional directors and key technical positions are contracted for each production, drawn from our wider region, while also providing opportunities for emerging professionals to learn and practice with them. Actors audition through an open call process and are drawn from Northfield and the surrounding region, including experienced performers and newcomers. We strive to make our plays accessible to all, including ASL interpretation, affordable ticket prices and an ADA accessible auditorium.
The Guild also presents up to two LAB productions per year, dedicated to experimental theater arts. LAB productions are focused on encouraging new and experienced theater artists to develop projects that mine new territory and develop their skills, and offer audiences an even more intimate theater experience. Past productions include one- and two-person shows, staged readings, as well as larger productions.
In addition to other arts and theater classes, our Education Program offers two dedicated annual courses that provide area youth with exceptional education in the performing arts. More information can be found on the Youth Theater page.
See you at the theater!
