SCCT brings local, professional actors directly to you! No buses to arrange and the cost is very competitive, and can either be covered by your PTA, school budget or passed along to the students. We can perform anywhere that your students can hear well, typically in the auditorium or cafeteria.

“South Carolina Children’s Theatre did an amazing job reenacting the book (Dragons Love Tacos)! Our students spent days reading the book in class, inviting guest readers to read the book, completing activities, etc. This opportunity brought all that they had learned to reality. The students gained a deeper love for literacy, reading the book, and connecting it to the arts.” –Brittany Jackson, Robert E. Cashion Elementary
“Miss Nelson Is Missing was just fabulous! As I looked around at the kids they were in awe of the characters and were so involved in listening and taking in everything that was happening on the stage. You all do such a great job of reaching the children and presenting a high quality play for a few dollars. We appreciate you bringing your shows to the public schools. Otherwise some of these kids would never have an opportunity to attend a play.” – Jere Coker, Pelham Road Elementary
“The production was not only entertaining but also engaging and very professionally done. It’s wonderful for our kids to see local talent. We look forward to having y’all come back next year!” – Christine Wallace, Brushy Creek Elementary
