About SCCT’s Theatre Arts Conservatory

Established in 1992, SCCT’s Theatre Arts Conservatory is a year-round program for students ages 3-18. The curriculum is sequential and provides for the development of knowledge and skills in increasing levels of competence. Areas of study include creative drama, acting, improvisation, scene and monologue study, audition techniques, rehearsal methods, character analysis, script analysis, theatre history, stage management, directing, technical theatre (scenery, painting, costumes, props), and musical theatre. Progress is best seen through consistent and continuing work.

Drama is a fundamental tool in developing an understanding of the ideas, attitudes,  beliefs and feelings of people in different circumstances, cultures and times. As such, it is basic to the education of all children. The emphasis on developmental processes and activity-oriented methods develops powerful modes of learning that are applicable to all areas of academic curriculum. The study of drama is basic in educating the emotions for controlled use, strengthening the imagination for creative self-expression, disciplining the voice and body for purposeful use, and providing an understanding and critical appreciation for theatre arts.

It is our belief 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, or an athlete 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, expression and collaboration, develop verbal and social skills, and bolster confidence and self-esteem. Skills needed for any job, not just acting. In the past year, 2,200 students participated in our training classes and camps.

Test Drives

Wonder if your child will enjoy theatre class?  Want to try it out before committing to a 10-week semester?  These classes are perfect for you.

A chance for new students to meet some of our instructors, see the classrooms and try out activities from a sample class.  Students should come in clothes that allow for free movement—skirts can be tricky for movement games.  Parents will remain in the classroom during the entire class to observe and handle bathroom breaks with their child.

These classes are extremely popular and fill-up quickly, however we have had a problem in the past with a large number of no-shows on class day which means that other children who might have come to the class were prevented by people who took a class space and then didn’t attend—please sign-up only if you really plan to come.

Sorry—if you have taken a prior class with us, please do not sign up — feel free to email your previous class teacher if you have questions about what is best for your child.  This TEST DRIVE is only for brand new potential students and a parent is required to attend WITH their child.

Our Parking Lot is a Pay Lot except for SCCT Students WITH a dash card displayed. You will be emailed a dash card for this workshop–please plan to print it and display it on your dash. If you are unable to print one, please ask for one when you arrive. Unattended cars parked in the lot without a dash card appropriate to the day of week/time of day, may be ticketed.

Masks are OPTIONAL for everyone – students & teachers alike. We will fully support anyone’s choice to wear a mask. Everyone washes hands upon arrival.  We will continue to monitor the COVID situation in our area and reserve the right to make adjustments to safety protocols accordingly.
