COVID PROTOCOLS as of August 17, 2021

SCCT is committed to the health and safety of our patrons, casts, crews, students and staff. The CDC and DHEC currently recommend universal indoor masking when students age 2 and older are present. In accordance with these recommendations, we at SCCT feel it necessary to make the following updates to our COVID protocols in our efforts to keep everyone safe within our premises.

  • Students will be required to wear masks whenever indoors at SCCT.
  • SCCT teaching artists will be required to wear masks while teaching classes at SCCT.
  • Any parent/guardian (or sibling over the age of 2) of one of our students who opts to come into the building will be required to wear a mask to enter and while inside the building.

In addition to the mask requirements, five bipolar ionization units have been installed into all of our HVAC air handlers to ensure that everyone in our facility has access to the cleanest, safest, and healthiest air possible. Surface disinfection will happen between performances. Our theatre is sanitized with an electrostatic sprayer using an EPA-approved, food safe biocide designed to kill coronavirus on surfaces within minutes. Hand sanitizer stations are placed throughout the facility.

We will continue to monitor the COVID situation in our area and reserve the right to make adjustments to safety protocols accordingly.

Due to limited space for audiences in our classrooms, we will record the end-of-semester “sharing” for all classes and send parent’s the video link allowing each family to celebrate their child’s performance at a time convenient for everyone in the family and making it possible to easily share with distant family members. Our “sharings” are informal performances. Our goal is to engage the students in preparing for the low-pressure performance, without causing undo anxiety and also not spending every minute of class time solely repeating rehearsals. The “sharings” will not be highly polished and will be very low tech as our primary goal is to provide a safe and enjoyable class experience, filled with group interaction and fun.

**We DO meet when Greenville County Schools are off for Teacher Workdays or Holidays.**

All students must be able to use the bathroom completely by themselves as needed (which means we will not remove clothes, re-dress nor enter the bathroom stall with your child to assist with wiping). Please be certain your child is in clothes that are simple for him/her to remove as needed for potty breaks.  SCCT Teachers/Assistants will not change diapers.

Channel your child’s endless creative energy into directed dramatic play! Games, stories, music and poetry inspire character exploration, teamwork and imagination. This low-pressure environment will ease a child into comfortably being in front of people and expressing ideas to a group. Through games, activities and songs we can explore group problem solving, being seen and heard in front of an audience, areas of the stage, and character development. Some theatre exercises and activities are used each session, but teachers are sensitive to the needs of returning students, so these classes are appropriate to take several times in order to further hone developing skills.

Wednesdays, Sept 15-Nov 17 | 5:30 – 6:30 PM | Lauren Wilson | $160

Is your child always singing and dancing around your home? Let’s channel that creative energy with SING! We will learn the music and fun choreography to some of our favorites. No reading required, but a love of performing is a must! The class will focus on ensemble musical theatre material.

So… Mom and Dad don’t have a break even though your school does.  Come to SCCT and play with us!  Games and activities are designed to keep students engaged and entertained with exercises and activities used in our regular session classes exploring group problem solving, being seen and heard in front of an audience, areas of the stage, and character development, etc.  These classes are meant to engage the child in a group environment, but are also to allow the parent some guilt free time to get their own work/appointments done. These classes are more general and aren’t themed per day, but will allow for a range of ages/interests and may also include craft time. Designed to keep excited kids active and having fun the week between school and big holidays. There will be no “sharing” for parents, just a bunch of socialization and interaction for the younger set.

If you’re in need of a date night downtown or maybe just some grown-up time to stream your own movie or get uninterrupted work done, just drop the kids off at the South Carolina Children’s Theatre and let them enjoy a fun evening of their own! We’ll start the night with drama activities for a wide range of ages and experience levels, and then we’ll play crafts, enjoy a snack of milk and cookies* and snuggle down for the evening to watch a movie. Make sure they have their favorite blankets and pillows-we hope to have them in sleepy-mode by the time you pick them up.

*Standard supermarket cookies and regular milk will be provided.  Please supply your own snack if food allergies are a concern.
