ACCESS TO THE ARTS
The Guild is the founding sponsor for Access to the Arts, an Asolo Rep Education & Outreach program that provides opportunities every year for thousands of students and teachers in Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte counties to study and enjoy live theatre and to attend special productions at greatly reduced rates.
THE GUILDER AWARD
Throughout the year, Guild members attend and critique local high school drama productions culminating in awarding the prestigious Guilder Award. This award is presented annually to an area high school for outstanding achievement, innovation and progress in their theatre program.
The Guild Play Readers group meets monthly to present staged readings of plays, which are then enthusiastically discussed. Our members present readings for many community groups to promote Asolo Rep, raise funds for Access to the Arts, and share their love of theatre!
The Guild established and supports the Asolo RepTour Guides program. Each year, tour guides conduct hundreds of tours of the FSU Center for the Performing Arts, giving a backstage glimpse of the rehearsalhalls, costume shop, green room and more!
