MEETING SCHEDULE FOR THE SONS OF THE DESERT NYC

Date: Friday, October 8, 2021
Time: 7:30pm – 10:30pm

The New York Founding Tent meets monthly at The Church of the Transfiguration, founded in 1848 and home of The Episcopal Actors' Guild since 1923. "The Little Church Around the Corner," as it is commonly known, has welcomed theatrical legends including Edwin Booth, Joseph Jefferson, Basil Rathbone, Tallulah Bankhead, Joan Fontaine, Rex Harrison, and Charlton Heston, so we are in great company!

COVID-19 Guidelines

 

Members and prospectives MUST show proof of vaccinations, show photo ID, and wear a mask. We will be checking all these things at the door and we reserve the right to turn away members or new prospects. We also suggest that you bring a small bottle of hand sanitizer and your own bottles of water. 

 

We usually invite you to bring a guest for a tryout visit, but for now, we have to suspend that until further notice for when we get the all-clear from the Church. Children who aren’t vaccinated are not safe until they DO get their vaccines. REMEMBER: We are the Church’s guests and we abide by their rules. Thank you for your understanding and stay safe!
