Mission and Vision of Beverly Theatre Guild

Enriching Lives Through Theater


Beverly Theatre Guild’s mission is to enrich the lives of our community by promoting the development of talent and interest in theatre arts through theatrical productions.  BTG’s vision is to present high quality, diverse productions that will be inspirational and have a positive influence on and within the community.  Founded in 1963, this purpose has been exemplified through more than 150 full-scale productions and numerous involvements in neighborhood and educational events.  

The Beverly Theatre Guild is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. 

Coming October 8, 9, 10, 2021


The BTG Board is approaching our new season cautiously keeping in mind current legal and health recommendations.  Auditions, rehearsals and performances will happen in a safe environment as we come through this long intermission. Join us this season (2020-2021) for our production of Harvey.  Watch for more information on our 2021-2022 season which will include Matilda in October 2021, and King and I (dates to be announced).

10 Musicals in 10 Minutes

The Beverly Theatre Guild stands in solidarity with our Black brothers and sisters during this time of mourning and protest.  BTG stands behind the rights of the many persons who are peacefully demonstrating for justice.  We have always welcomed all persons, regardless of gender, race, color, creed, or sexual/gender orientation, and deplore discrimination of any kind.  We understand that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.  We will continue to be a safe space for actors to express themselves artistically just as we have for the last 58 years.  We see, we hear, we march, we love.
