TTG RETURNS TO HUNTINGTON
Township Theatre Group is moving back to the Huntington Village area where the company last performed more than 40 years ago. A new partnership with the Temple Beth El on Park Avenue will bring “TTG” full circle for its 64th season.
In 1952, TTG debuted a “Summer Comedy Festival Week” with audience members at the premier performance welcomed by stage and screen legend Henry Fonda, who happened to be summering in Huntington. Performances were held at the R.L. Simpson High School, now Huntington Town Hall, and the Town issued a proclamation urging citizens to support the activities of TTG as “an organization which is becoming an integral part of the cultural life of the community.” Since that time, the group has produced 228 main stage shows and for the past 12 years has sponsored a Touring Company that performs in area libraries and other venues. The theatre space at Temple Beth El offers a full stage and allows TTG to continue its unique cabaret-seating.
“TTG is excited to be performing once again in Huntington, a community that is so supportive of the arts,” said Susan J. Emro, President. “As our 64th season kicks off, we look forward to bringing quality, live theatre to new audiences and offering community members interested in theatrical performance the opportunity to join us either onstage or backstage in our productions.”
TTG RECEIVES GRANT FROM SUFFOLK COUNTY
Through the office of Suffolk County Legislator William Spencer, District 18, Township Theatre Group has received a $5,000 Cultural Arts grant from the Suffolk County Office of Economic Development and Planning, which seeks to support a vital and diverse cultural climate in the county. This grant supported production costs for TTG’s Winter/Spring Season and allowed us to bring quality, live theatre at a reasonable cost to our local community. TTG extends its thanks and gratitude to Legislator Spencer for his sponsorship for another year.
