Blue Room Guild Happy Hour

The Blue Room Theatre Guild Happy Hour

What is the Guild?

The first Saturday night of each main stage performance The Blue Room Theatre hosts a private party for theatre Guild Members. At each party there will be food and drink, perhaps to match the spirit of the play being performed, and dessert at intermission. The parties start at 6:30 p.m. and the performances at 7:30 p.m. 

How does this help the Blue Room?

As we head into our 23rd season, the Blue Room Theatre faces challenges as we work to make up for our lost City grant at the same time we are working to expand our performances, continue to build our Youth Company, and educational programs. The Guild serves a dual purpose - members have a fabulous evening at a private party watching great performances, while the creation of the guild serves as a primary fundraiser .

What does it cost? $200 per person. 

If you are interested in becoming a Guild member, please, email Amber Miller at for date and time.

The undeniably familiar tale of the spirit of redemption, told in a decidedly unfamiliar fashion. There are still plenty of prisons and workhouses in Scrooge and Marley’s England – but also a few electric guitars and drum kits.

In this brand new dark comedy a soldier returns stateside after fighting in the Middle East to find a maelstrom back home, including a transgender brother and mother on a radically feminist mission. Neither the patriarchy nor gender norms stand a chance.
