About SCCT’s Education Program
Established in 1992, SCCT’s Theatre Arts Conservatory is a year-round program for students ages 3-18. The format includes Advanced-Level Studios, Intermediate, Process, Musical Theatre, Story Drama, and Exploration Classes, as well as Specialty Classes & Workshops. Each format offers unique games, activities, and challenges for the theatre student.
We believe that theatre arts training is like any other form of training; the more you do it, the better you get. Just as a dancer takes class after class of ballet; or a soccer player trains year after year with a team, theatre arts training is most effective when the student is repeatedly exposed to vocabulary, theories, and exercises. At SCCT, we hope to provide a variety of creative opportunities that encourage creative thinking, develop verbal and social skills, and bolster self-esteem. Skills needed for any job, not just acting.
