theatre performance school tours

Touring To Your School

We can bring local, professional actors directly to you! No busses 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.

Our SCCT To Go Tours run October-February each school year, we do not have the ability to tour during the summer months.

THANK YOU to all the schools who supported our 2018-2019 tour of DRAGONS LOVE TACOS! Because of your support, we were able to reach nearly 6,000 students across the Upstate visiting schools in Greenville County, Pickens County, Spartanburg County, Anderson County and even Hart County, GA! Thank you for sharing the joy of live theatre with your students.


Exciting news! We will be touring Elephant & Piggie’s “We Are In A Play” during the 2019-2020 school year!




Get ready for a lively musical experience, ripped from the pages of Mo Willems’ beloved, award-winning, best-selling children’s books. Gerald and Piggie are “bestus” friends and have a pretty amazing time together. Whether they are attending a pool party, skipping around or being in a play, along with singing sensations, The Squirrelles, this production will warm the hearts of even the youngest patrons.

Musical includes selections from the following books:

  • I Am Invited to a Party!
  • I Love My New Toy!
  • Elephants Cannot Dance!
  • I Am Going!
  • Should I Share My Ice Cream?
  • We Are In A Book!

Recommended for K4-3rd grade students
Estimated run time: 60 minutes

Based on the Elephant & Piggie books by Mo Willems

Make a Payment

“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
