Kingsport Theatre Guild (KTG) is entering its 67th year as a community theatre which promotes growth and education, offers encouragement and hope, builds self-esteem and engages the minds of not only the actors, directors, and crew but also the community in which it is based. KTG is a starting point for those interested in pursuing an education or career in theatre. It is an escape from reality for a few hours for those who are seeking it. It is also a place many call home, where returning cast and crew are considered family and newcomers are welcomed with open arms. KTG is you, just as you are, in all of your many talents.
“What talents” you may say? A community theatre takes every talent including: acting, directing, set building, lighting, painting, sewing, makeup, social media sharers, ushers, board of directors, painters, encouragers, organizers, volunteers and you. You, the community, are what make KTG so unique and special!
Our goal for the 2014-2015 season is to raise $30,000 and we know that you, being such an important part of KTG, will be able to help us reach this goal. There are many different opportunities in which you can help us achieve this goal:
