Please provide a paragraph or so about what your organization does in the community. Include any recent achievements, projects, and goals.

The Racine Theatre Guild (RTG), a volunteer-based community theatre, was founded in 1938 by 26 people with $13, making it one of Wisconsin’s oldest continuous community theatres and one of the largest in the Midwest. It has grown into an organization that provides a variety of live entertainment and educational opportunities for all ages.

Through the efforts of hundreds of dedicated volunteers, led by a small professional staff, RTG annually offers a season of eight main-stage plays and musicals, Racine Children’s Theatre, Jean’s Jazz Series, Comedy Tonight, Signature Spotlight Concert Series, theatre trips to Chicago and New York City, theatre classes for kids and adults, daytime performances and workshops for schools, and more.

Since its beginning 81 years ago, RTG has produced nearly 500 mainstage plays and musicals and continues creating new programs for diverse audiences and volunteers, allowing us to fulfill our mission and live up to our motto: “lighting up lives at all stages.”

What would you like the general public to know about your organization and ways they can help/support you?

The Racine Theatre Guild is largely staffed by volunteers. Hundreds of people of all ages and skill levels help keep the RTG going strong. There is always a need for new people on and off stage. Positions include acting, serving on the board of directors, stage managing, running wardrobe, light and sound techs, set construction, and so much more.
