Theatre has the ability to:
Empower individuals to think on their feet in ever-changing contexts.
Deepen and heighten the development of an individual’s emotional and social intelligence's.
Expand one’s verbal and nonverbal communication skills in various presentational modes.
At STC it is important that everyone involved has the chance to do so without the huge financial burden of tuition.
At STC it is important everyone is given equal opportunity to audition and apply for theatrical roles/tech roles.
We are of the people for the people.
STC is committed to diversity and encourages performers of all ethnicities, gender identities, and ages, as well as performers with disabilities, to audition. We consign ourselves to.and representing all members of our community on stage.
Our Theatre Company seeks to inspire, stimulate and promote interest in the theatrical arts within our community while offering a professional and supportive environment for both adults and children of varying ages, cultures and levels of theatrical experience.
We seek to deliver professional quality work in a supportive environment, by offering dedicated artists, staff, and volunteers to community members, thus ensuring theatrical performances of the highest caliber. We are committed to supporting future arts professionals as well as those members of our community who are looking for a theatrical outlet and enhancing their art. We will offer performing arts training and theatrical production opportunities to all members of our community from varying walks of life.
We believe that theatre can create community by bringing together a diverse group of actors, not only enriching their lives but the lives of the audiences who attend our productions. We believe that we have a calling to reach out to adults and children who may not otherwise have access to, or the financial means to pay for, the professional, artistic and educational experiences that we can provide. We believe that creating a professional environment that inspires collaboration and ingenuity permits artists and staff to be not only expressive but self-reliant while building self-esteem and self-belief. By including younger performers in our company we will keep our work vital as well as ensuring our companies continuation and growth. We believe that youth and adults have the ability to learn one from the other and by combining all ages we create a diversified group that can speak to all areas of our community. It is our belief that you don't start acting "professional" once you start to get paid, being professional starts from respect for self, and for the work, which transcends the theater experience. Our productions will prepare actors to be the best prepared they can possibly be, regardless of the level of theatre in which they choose to take part.
STC is committed to diversity and encourages performers of all ethnicities, gender identities, and ages, as well as performers with disabilities, to audition.
