SJCT Up To Date

OH What a NIGHT!

SJCT’s Silver Celebration was both a trip down memory lane and a wonderful reminder of the island talents that still keep our Theatre thriving, taking us into the next 25 years.  Mixing live theater, song and dance performances with video clips and photo collages from the past, Artistic Director Susan Williams and CAO Mary Blevins and staff and volunteers created an evening of true community theater.  (Below the photos is a copy of the program from the evening).  The smiles at the end of the evening as we all celebrated with cupcakes and champagne said it all!

Some of the photo highlights:

Here’s Gretchen Gubelman playing her mom, Martha, in an adaptation of Dan Weber’s original script written for the 1989 opening of SJCT.

Ted Soares was honored with the first annual Volunteer Award.  He has been part of our Theatre family since its beginnings and has covered all the bases: from acting to investing (including purchasing our stage curtains!) to behind the scenes where he’s been prop master for most of our musicals and plays—Mary was thrilled to give him the award and to name it THE TEDDY AWARD.

And here’s more highlights: Dance Happy fun…San Juan Singers…Annie orphans…Lobby togetherness…cupcakes!…and the confetti finale!
