SVCT/Limelight At Home

Since we are currently unable to bring the curtain up at Limelight in Gilroy or the Morgan Hill Community Playhouse, we have a wonderful variety of online productions underway for your entertainment! We have transformed our SVCT warehouse into a green screen studio. New lights, cameras, and a green screen background fill the space, enabling us to create new illusions for our loyal patrons. For other online plays, we are filming from our stage at Limelight in Gilroy, creating simple sets as an alternative to using the green screen. And for other productions, where more appropriate,  we are using Zoom and Facebook Live.

.

Our plays have free admission, but the delivery method and availability window for each show is different, depending on our licensing rights for that show. Please review details by show.

.

SVCT and Limelight stages bring hundreds of local people together to create the magic of theater. One of our goals with our online productions is to feature the broad variety of local talent that you know and love. Look for actors, directors, and technical staff that you have seen featured in South Valley productions–from SVCT, Limelight, and Pintello Comedy Theater–over the years..(And while you are watching our show, supporting our local theater, why not make it an occasion, perhaps ordering take-out and also supporting the local restaurants and wineries that are hurting?) Our community is our strength!

Please consider clicking the “Donate” button in order to help SVCT weather the storm while our theater stages are dark. And hopefully we will all soon hear, “Hit the lights. It’s showtime!”.

UPCOMING FREE ONLINE PRODUCTIONS

In January, look for  Five Quick Comedies (total performance time, about 1 hour). These will each feature different local directors and performers.

We have lots more in the works! Shows being considered include: a teen musical (with social distancing), additional two-person plays, a series of one-act plays, perhaps a behind the scenes set of interviews with performers from a past show, and more. We welcome your suggestions…. email us at svct@SVCT.org!

COMPLETED FREE ONLINE PRODUCTIONS

Our first online production, Kalamazoo, in July, was a one act comedy recorded in our green screen studio, edited,  and made available for one weekend only.

This was followed by Bad Auditions … On Camera, performed by 19 of your favorite SVCT actors and made available live, over Facebook Live for one  live performance.

Next, Tru, a one person play, was recorded on our Limelight stage and made available online for one weekend at the end of August.

In October, we presented our fourth show, 2 Across. This was another two-person green screen production, a full length dramatic comedy.

In November, we provided a free Teen Dance Class online. Teens learned a song from the musical Newsies. This was followed in December by a Youth (ages 8-12) Dance Class, live (socially distanced) in the parking lot at our warehouse. The kids learned a song from The Lion King.

We presented The Night Before Christmas. as a staged reading for 2 weeks, through Christmas Day, 2020.
