Since its inception in 1990, San Carlos Children’s Theater has become a leader and family favorite in local youth theater. Thanks to the support of Peninsula friends and businesses, SCCT has produced more than 130 shows, trained over 10,000 aspiring young actors, and entertained over 20,000 Bay Area families.
SCCT provides students ages 5-18 with quality theatrical experiences which foster creative and critical thinking skills, develop leadership, build self-confidence, and teach teamwork in a supportive, safe environment.
We strongly believe that the process is just as important as the product, and strive to help performers discover more about themselves as they learn the fundamentals of performing arts and technical production. Through after-school drama classes, musical theater camps, specialized workshops, and full-scale productions, SCCT nurtures each student’s imagination and creative aspirations to help them reach their full potential and develop a life-long love for the arts.
SCCT is committed to its community and its goal to provide exceptional theater training to students throughout the Peninsula. In addition to our independent performing arts programs, we are now in our fourth year of partnership with the San Carlos School District, teaching daily classes in the San Carlos middle schools, as well as providing after-school theater classes and productions to public schools in Redwood City, Belmont and San Mateo.
Students are invited to participate in theater leadership by joining SCCT’s Youth Advisory Board, as well as working as assistant directors/choreographers, technical crew assistants, or class aides.
