And just as we have all grown accustomed to our safe-at-home virtual reality, we are pausing to plan for the school year and reflect on all of the recent change in our community and our world.
Transition can be daunting, but knowledge, courage, and growth makes the change worthwhile. So, whether you’re an artist learning new ways to express your creativity, a student preparing for a year of learning in new environments, or a parent or educator helping their child navigate the changing world, SCT is here to support.
Join us as we embrace transition and welcome growth, and read on to learn more about SCT’s plans for the coming months.
SPOTLIGHT ON: COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT & ARTS BASED LEARNING
At SCT, we’re constantly asking ourselves how we can build on our mission of providing children of all ages access to professional theatre. Experiencing theatre at a young age has proven to be a strong tool for young people to build their social and emotional skills, unleash their creativity, and learn more about themselves and the world around them. We also know that not every young person has the ability to make a trip to the theatre, so the mission of SCT’s Community Engagement and Arts Based Learning Programs is simple: let’s bring theatre to them.
LEARNING THROUGH MUSIC: A CONVERSATION WITH CURRICULUM SPECIALIST MEREDITH BERLIN ON SCT’S EDUCATIONAL SERIES WITH KING FM
SCT and KING FM have partnered to present a 10-week educational series, Saturday Morning Stories, which launched in mid-August and will continue through October 17, 2020. This series brings beloved children’s literature to life through a crescendo of whimsical melodies and narrated plots. Hand selected titles like Goodnight Moon and Peter and the Wolf take families on a classical music adventure where they can simultaneously engage in activities uniquely curated by SCT for each production that the whole family can enjoy.
