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 firstname.lastname@example.org and Beth at email@example.com.
