TLC Benefits and Events

In 2015, TLC offered $1,000 (total) in grants to theatres for projects directly impacting the theatre-going experience for audiences. The goal of the grants is to improve materially for Albuquerque-area theatre audiences their experience of Albuquerque Theatre Guild member-theatresí productions.

The grantees were decided by the ATG Member-generated Projects Committee. Two active TLC members (Dawn Liberman and Franklin Schargel) served on the ATG committee that discussed and decided who would get the TLC grants. The winners have two years to complete the specified projects, and we recognize that the grant money is only a portion of what is needed to complete the projects.

The TLC grants went to the following three theatres:

  • Adobe Theater, $350 toward a digital sound system to work in tandem with their LED lighting system.
  • Vortex Theatre, $350 toward new chairs and seat banks.
  • Working Classroom, $300 toward a portable public address system.

TLC is pleased to have provided these grants in support of our wonderful local live theatre groups, and we thank Dawn and Franklin for contributing their services to this endeavor.

We like it live!

Coming Events, 2016:

  • Discount on tickets to most ATG Member Theatre performances. Join the TLC mailing list for details on specific show discounts.

  • Monday February 29, 7:00 pm, at the Sandia Preparatory School theatre, Landmark Musicals invites TLC, exclusively, to attend the costume parade for My Fair Lady. Costume Designer Erin Moots will show the director and cast their first look at what she has created, and we’ll be on hand to watch. Reservations are required; make them online at No cost for TLC members.

  • Monday March 21, 6:30 pm (at location TBA), special presentation on set design by Emmy-winner Dahl Delu, who has designed sets, costumes, and lighting for more than 50 years. He has worked for major repertory companies, opera companies (including the Metropolitan Opera), and musical theatres, as well as designing sets and lights on and off Broadway. He has earned two Emmys while working on more than 50 prime time TV series, including Cheers and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. We are lucky to have him here in Albuquerque, and he will show-and-tell about the three set designs he currently is working on, including Landmark Musicals’ My Fair Lady and Guys and Dolls, and Opera Southwest’s Il Turco in Italia. Dahl also will give us early thoughts on Beauty and the Beast for Sandia Prepís summer theatre workshop in July. As if that werenít enough, heíll explain the whole design process and why each show looks different from the others. Reservations are required; make them online at No cost for TLC members (a perk of membership); all others (general public welcome) $8.00 in advance ($10.00 at the door but only if space available). Reserve and pay online with PayPal or your favorite credit card. If paying by check, first reserve online then mail check (made out to Albuquerque Theatre Guild) to:

    TLC (set design)
    P. O. Box 20307

Saturday January 23 at the Vortex Theatre, panel of musical theatre music directors. This was a continuation of a TLC series of panel discussions by people in theatre. Previously we have presented theatre reviewers, costumers, stage managers, and legal and business challenges that our local theatre groups must face. The panel discussion was followed by an audience Q&A session and an informal reception with light refreshments.

  • You’ll be invited to meet other theatre enthusiasts at gatherings such as “Dinner and a Show”Ě or “Around the Piano: Favorite Musical Numbers.”

  • You can mingle with the cast and crew at exclusive post-show receptions and “Cocktails with the Stars” events.

  • You’ll receive special privileges such as early entry to unreserved seating at participating theatres and space-available admission to the activities of ATG’s Circles (workshops for directors, actors, playwrights, etc.)

  • You’ll be invited to give VIP feedback to ATG Members on your experiences at the theatre.

And more!... (this is a work-in-progress!)

All these occasions provide an opportunity to network and exchange ideas, information, and experiences with people who share your abiding commitment to live theatre. Showing your TLC membership card will usually be required to receive the discounts and other privileges.
