Were looking for a wide variety of talent from both the community and the college, stated SCC Theatre Coordinator Steve Cleberg. Our theatre is a truly community theatre. Annual auditions are open to any interested members of the community as well as our students.

Cleberg expressed a need for a wide variety of performers this season who are capable of serving at different levels. Id like to talk to anyone who would like to perform or serve as a crew member for any of our play and film productions. There is a place for everyone in some capacity.

Sherry Crabtree will be directing the first production of the season. The Readers Theatre production is presented twice a year. This is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to get on the stage but has a tight personal schedule. Cleberg added, The Readers Theatre production performers have a few rehearsals over a two week period and perform on one evening.

Cleberg also pointed out that because the productions are performed with a script in hand, its often a good way for new people to get stage experience without the pressure of memorizing lines. Cleberg went on to say, We often have some of our best actors performing with individuals who have never been on stage before. Its a great experience for everyone involved and has been immensely popular with our audiences.

SCCs Readers Theatre productions first performance is scheduled for September 24 at 8 p.m. in Stoner Little Theatre.

SCC Theatre is proud to announce its plans to produce the classic comedy School For Scandal. The 18th century British romp has been reworked by its director Steve Cleberg. This reworking of Richard Brinsley Sheridans rollicking comedy is designed to stay true to the original masterpiece but to move quickly for modern audience members.

Cleberg will be looking to fill sixteen roles. The cast is evenly drawn between eight men and eight women. The play will be produced on November 19 and 20.

SCC will also be looking at performers to take part in the Colleges Storybook Theatre program. Each year, the college works up popular childrens stories into an interactive performance which is taken to local schools.

Other events of SCC Theatres season will include its annual 48 Hour Film Festival in September, a February performance of the Readers Theatre Company and a production of Sketches! in April. SCC will also host its annual Winter Shorts Film Festival in January and its annual Teen Theatre Festival in March.
