The Glenview Theatre Guild, a brief history…
Founded in 1974, the Glenview Theatre Guild (GTG) offers Glenview and the surrounding communities a high quality, low-cost exposure to theatre. In addition, as a sponsored program of the Glenview Park District the group enables talented individuals from Glenview and throughout Chicagoland to share their gifts on stage.
Each year GTG presents a major musical production. Most shows are performed at Glenbrook South High School in Glenview, Illinois. (though Glenbrook North High School is Considered our second home) On average, 2,500-3,000 theatre-goers enjoy each year’s production. The annual show typically involves a cast of 30-60 singers, dancers and actors as well as a support staff of 20-40 people (e.g., director, choreographer, music director, producer, costume designer, set designer, stage crew, etc.). Most of the individuals involved in the show volunteer their time and talents to bring quality, affordable entertainment to the community.
The Glenview Theatre Guild fosters a sense of community among all persons involved in putting on the production. The months of work really pay off when we present a professional quality production to you, our audience!
