The “Buy a Seat” program sponsored by the Wilson Center Auditorium Renovation Committee and a successful grant application provided the balance of the funds to install 212 new, comfortable seats and purchase basic sound equipment.  The Auditorium Committee's goals are to install at least 120 more seats on the main floor of the Auditorium, to install new and enhanced lighting and replace the carpeting.  Some of the stage lights currently in use are more than 50 years old. Eventually, the light control booth will move to the balcony so the person running the lights can actually see what he/she is lighting!   


Homegrown Productions brings numerous theater productions to Clinton County.  These productions are put on in the R. B. Wilson Center Auditorium which is located at 101 W. Cass Street in downtown St. Johns.

Our goal for Homegrown Productions is to produce a musical, a play (comedy, drama, or mystery) and a variety show each year.  We are looking for community members who are interested in all aspects of theater, from building sets to tackling the most challenging dramatic roles on stage.  Anyone interested in getting involved with Homegrown Productions can email Susan at susanderosa@msn.com and Beth at bethwebb@chartermi.net.

Uh, Oh - Here Comes Christmas!!

December 6 & 7 at 7:30pm

Wilson Center Auditorium

​$10 - at the door


Since 2009, Homegrown Productions has added to the holiday spirit in our community with a musical variety show. This year thy are proud to present “Uh Oh, Here Comes Christmas,” a play based on the books by Robert Fulghum. Heartwarming stories and musical interludes look at the struggle to find the spirit of the holidays amid the avalanche of commercialism, stress and chaos that crashes down every December. Delightful stories include hilarious musings about a love/hate relationship with the vibrant poinsettia that arrives in most homes every December and hangs on long after the holidays have ended; and a beautiful, deeply moving tribute to the winter solstice, celebrating nature's precious annual gift of rebirth.

“Uh, Oh, Here Comes Christmas” is directed by Beth Webb and Susan DeRosa. This year’s cast members are Sara Craft, Mikey Delaney, Susan DeRosa, Jan Ross, Darryl Schmitz, Beth Webb, and Tom Webb. This is a family friendly show.
