Request An Appearance

SG_BrooklynCylones_Web_012614_080314_315Do you have an event or convention that you’d like to have Empire Saber Guild perform or teach at? Do you have a charity event that needs a Star Wars touch?
If so then Empire Saber Guild might be exactly what you are looking for. To find out what we can do at your event please visit our Event Activities page.


Empire Saber Guild is a volunteer organization and our membership consists of volunteers, most of whom hold full-time jobs outside of Saber Guild activities. Our ability to satisfy an event request depends on a number of factors including availability of members, location, and time of the event. Events which directly or indirectly benefit the community and/or charity organizations will receive a better chance of a Saber Guild appearance over private functions (e.g., birthday parties, weddings). Anyone submitting a request should be a person who has the authority of the event and should be over 18 years of age. Saber Guild’s costumes focuses on generic Star Wars Jedi and Sith characters, but we recommend inquiring with our sister organization, the Rebel Legion,  The 501st, and the Mandalorian Mercs, should you desire Star Wars characters at your event.

While we do not charge a fee for appearances (public or private), we enthusiastically welcome donations made to a charitable organization in the name of the Empire Saber Guild. If you do not have a charity of choice, please ask that you please make a donation to St. Mary’s Children’s Hospital.

This week at Saber Guild: Empire Temple's Naboo Outpost we welcome Empire Temple's Local Director, SG-053 Rubin Polizzi, and Local Stage Director, SG-117 Rodney Clarke, to help walk us through a behind the scenes look at how to perform Empire Saber Guild's Padawan Training Institute (PTI).

PTI is one of Empire Temple's most well known performances and can be seen at comic conventions and other special appearances. For younglings, participating in our performances will be their first step into a larger world.

In this special class our Official and Non-offcial members will learn how to act the part of Jedi Masters and Sith Lords, plus we'll take a look at how we run our custom audio setup to create a truely epic experience!

While attendance is free, we ask that all participants make a donation of $3-$5 to help pay for the rehearsal space.

How old do I have to be to attend class?
Becasue this is a combat based class attendees must be 18 years or older to attend on their own. Anyone between the ages of 13-17 may participate in class but MUST have a parent or guardian present throughout the time of rehearsal. Children under he age of 13 may attend as spectators but must remain outside of the practice space with their parent or guardian at all times.

I Have Never Done This Before–Is That OK?
It does not matter if you are new to lightsabers or have been rehearsing for years. Come to a class, have a great time and work up a sweat.

What Do I Need to Bring?
You need to bring the most important thing–YOU! It’s also a good idea to bring workout clothes (sweatpants and a T-shirt are just perfect) and comfortable shoes. You don’t need a lightsaber to start off–there are always extra to go around. However, if you plan on coming frequently we can help you find one that is just right for you. IMPORTANT: No toy lightsabers - combat sabers only. These things are cool and look great but they will break once you get going.


Saber Guild: Empire Temple is the New York City temple of Saber Guild: a Lucasfilm Ltd. recognized international Star Wars lightsaber performance and costuming organization. We are a not-for-profit fan group who performs at fan conventions, charity events, sporting events and official Star Wars events focusing specifically in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, The Bronx, Yonkers, and Westchester - and larger events around the world such as Star Wars Celebration.

We are choreographers, dancers, actors, artists, costumers, filmmakers and photographers who volunteer our time to share our love of Star Wars with the community. Our focus is on lightsaber performance for stage and film.

We always welcome new members to train in the ways of the Force. We hold weekly rehearsals and master sessions with guest instructors in stage combat, performance, martial arts and acting.
