Something Wonderful Episode 1 - Claude Schmincke
Very sadly, the Spring Lake Community House and Theatre stage will be dark for the first time in forty-four years. The building is usually filled with the laughter and talents of hundreds of people of all ages. This spring there was no one here. There were no Dance Recitals or Theatre Workshop Plays. There are no auditions for Anything Goes or The Little Mermaid, the musicals we were planning to stage this summer. Spamalot, which was supposed to open in March sits waiting patiently to come back to life as soon as we are confident that it will be safe for performers and patrons to return to indoor entertainment. On a happy note, we will be able to stage Dance Recitals and Theatre Workshop Plays outdoors this summer. Our students and their families will have something special to look forward to. We miss our patrons very much~~you are like family to us. So, to help stay in touch with our friends while we are closed, we are launching "Something Wonderful," a web series that will showcase parts of the Spring Lake Theatre family, with new episodes coming out regularly. With "Something Wonderful", we aim to spotlight some of the talented actors that grace our stage and share their memories of this wonderful place. We will also use this space to share any news and updates we have regarding the Community House and Theatre.
In the first installment of Something Wonderful, you can join Spring Lake Theatre Company veteran Claude Schmincke, who has been acting at the theatre for 30 years, when he visits the building to share some of his favorite memories from this magical place.
This is a uniquely challenging time for everyone, including the Spring Lake Community House and Theatre. We are immensely grateful to everyone who has reached out to support us over the years. This beautiful, historic building depends upon the success of our Main Stage Productions, Children’s Programs, and the Generosity of our Donors to exist in the style that it has become accustomed to. Unfortunately, the Theatre Productions have been canceled until further notice. If you are able to help support us during this very difficult time, here is a link to our donation page. Thank you very much, stay well!
