As the weather grows cold and the year comes to a close, we’re embracing the season of giving. And what better way to bring us all together than through the gift of theatre.
Theatre inspires our creativity, encourages community, and connects us through shared experiences. Through the help of donors, drama school families, audience members, like you, SCT has kept the spark of theatre alive even with the house lights down.
This month, read on to learn what SCT is planning for December and how each of us can participate in spreading the gift of theatre this holiday season.

GIVE YOUR TEACHER THE GIFT OF SCT
I think you’ll agree with us when we say, educators are superheroes. And right now, they’re tired! Teachers have been working tirelessly to keep their students engaged and enthusiastic about their education while also making sure they’re staying safe. This holiday season, why not give your child’s teacher a break and let SCT do some of the work?
SCT’s Community Engagement programs bring actors, teaching artists, and other theatre professionals into schools, homes, and communities where they use theatre exercises to explore a variety of common core lessons, and we’re prepared to do it all in a virtual space.
GIFT IDEAS FOR YOUNG THESPIANS
The holidays are here and what better way to spread cheer to the young people and families on your list than the gift of SCT. You might be surprised to learn of the many ways you can use an SCT gift certificate, so allow us to help you give a gift that will garner a standing ovation.
