SCCT article in City State Arts!

City State Arts published a terrific article on SCCT — our history, our community, and our 60th season!  You can check out the article here, and thank you to City State Arts for this coverage.

THANK YOU to our Centre Gives donors!

YOU did it!  Thanks to our wonderful supporters, SCCT raised more money through Centre Gives than ever before!

Sixty nine generous SCCT donors contributed $5150.00 towards our organization, with Centre Gives matching and prize funds still to come.  This funding will help provide for our new sound system and microphones for our performers.

Thank you to everyone who helped support this effort, including our SCCT Centre Gives campaign coordinators — Kat Shondeck, Phil Vonada, Jason Poorman, and Amy Farkas!
