Incorporated December 6, 1972, Long Beach Theatre Guild is one of the original not for profit community theatre groups still going strong. We are a member of the American Association of Community Theatres.
We have been in continuous operation, we are proud to reflect on the fact that our 2011 productions will be our 103rd full production . Titled " WLBTG RADIO THEATRE" it is a live pop song presentation from the 1940's to today. Performances run through Nov.13,2011. In addition to 36 musicals, LBTG has presented 64 comedies, dramas, straight plays and original works. Our past critically aclaimed presentatioins have been at the Point Lookout Rec Hall and Ye Olde Fire House as well as Lindell Auditorium in Long Beach. Our administrative office is in Point Lookout . Currently because of the large size of our audience we have "outgrown" these other venues and our productions are at Temple Emanu-el in Long Beach in cooperation with the Temple Sisterhood. Thanks so.
For a local community group, our record of presenting these productions is unmatched.
Speaking of “ matched”, we have seen several LBTG off- stage romances blossom over the years. Many have become lasting relationships. Additionally, many of us have bonded wonderful friendships with each other. We present critically aclaimed live theatre which has enabled many of our thespians to move on to careers in film, Broadway and the entertainment media.
