The SCT Impact – Blair DeMauro

Earlier this year we reached out to a few dozen SCT alumni to ask them if they felt their time at Savannah Children’s Theatre had any long-term impact on their lives, their friendships, or their careers.  Of course, theatre kids (even grown-up ones) have a flair for the dramatic, so our former students couldn’t respond…

Spam a Little, SpamALOT!

SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM! We know.  We love Monty Python, too. Since our auditions back in October, SCT’s halls have been filled with belly laughs, John Cleese imitations, and not a little bit of flatulence.  We’re happy to say that we’ve enjoyed every second of it!  When choosing our season, we…

Play While You Wait! by Jenn Doubleday
