The Webster Theatre Guild

The Webster Museum's new exhibit celebrates the almost 80 years the Webster Theatre Guild has been performing in Webster.

Annie and Daddy Warbucks take center stage.  We have many photos and  wonderful posters, and some of the original costumes on display.

Erva Wright Smith and a minister started the Webster Theatre Guild in the late thirties.  They started with one act plays which evolved into musicals like Cinderella, Annie, Oliver, Peter Pan, 1776, and Anything Goes.

This year, the Webster Theatre Guild will perform The Music Man at the RL Thomas High School beginning January 22nd.

On display through February.
