Community Outreach

With a key interest in education and quality of life, the Racine Theatre Guild plays a unique role, giving everyone access to the performing arts, instilling creativity and open mindedness. “Lighting up lives at all stages” has been a part of our fabric since 1938 and we take pride in giving back to the Racine area which has supported us since day one.

Student Focused Performances

During the year, RTG chooses two productions to be performed not only for our regular audiences, but also students from throughout the area. During special daytime performances, children of all ages are introduced to the magic of theater! Students have the chance to ask questions, see the behind-the-scenes action, and share their excitement with the cast and crew.

Winter

During this year’s production of A Christmas Carol: The Musical, students of all ages are invited to enjoy this lively musical retelling of Charles Dickens’s classic story. Following each performances, students will get to have a talk back with the director, cast, and crew!
