The ACT that gives back...
“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of another.”
TAG is an amateur not for profit community theater located in Barton, NY. We are always looking for new talent, whether it is on the stage, backstage, or even in the kitchen helping with our dinner theater events. Please contact us if you are interested in helping with our TAG productions. All are welcome!
TAG regretfully announces its decision to
dissolve. TAG lost its dinner\theater venue
which makes it virtually impossible to carry on
its mission of providing affordable theater.
TAG would like to thank its many followers for
their continued support. Without you, our
audiences, we wouldn’t have a purpose. You
have given TAG the privilege to not only
perform and entertain you, but to give a little
back to the needs in the community.
TAG was started back in 2006 when two moms, Kelly Schweiger and Robin Benesh, wanted to offer additional opportunities for the Tioga Central High School students to enhance their acting skills. An improvisational group was held once a week, culminating with a performance of skits and sketches, many written by TAG members. Just a short time later, the group tackled the school’s first musical in decades, to a rounding success. TAG performed “Way out West in a Dress”, a musical comedy. TAG also performed an anti-bullying dramatization in cooperation with the New Hope Center, trying to raise awareness. In December of 2007, TAG took its act on the road as it visited the Albany Medical Center’s Children Hospital. Not only did TAG perform for the families there, but it took over $500 worth of items donated for the hospital’s wish list.
TAG performed several dinner theater fundraisers for the Community Care Network of Nichols, as well as Tioga Opportunities, Inc. TAG would like to thank all those who have supported TAG by attending its performances or sponsoring, which allowed TAG to donate to various charities including the following: The Open Door Mission, The Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, The TAG Community Service Scholarship, The Barton Community Club, The Bridge. In a last effort to ‘give back’, the board of directors voted to donate its kitchen supplies to the Barton Community Club. The majority of its set pieces and props will be sold\donated to the Tioga Central High School Drama Club.
Though it saddens all of us ‘Tagsters’ to dissolve TAG, it has been a wonderful experience, one filled with a multitude of memories.” TAG will keep its Facebook page active with photos from past performances and any TAG news.
