The South Carolina Children’s Theatre (SCCT) broke ground this month on their new Theatre Arts & Education Center for Children. With land gifted by arts patron Josephine Cureton and their current property at 153 Augusta Street, Craig Gaulden Davis designed the 36,781 square foot facility to house the Main Stage, 2nd Stage, educational programs, and administrative offices.
The building will feature a 300-seat proscenium theatre, 100-seat flexible stage theatre, interactive lobby, flexible performance classrooms, dressing rooms, costume shop, scene production, and administration areas. The new plaza and facade will activate the front entry and display SCCT’s mission. Once complete, this new facility will advance SCCT’s performance capacity, broaden their theatrical curriculum, grow their student body, and increase their community outreach capabilities.
Additionally, SCCT launched the final leg of their capital campaign with a goal of raising $1.4M, primarily through CHAIRish the Children, for a total of $12.8M. Let’s help them reach this goal!
Founded in 1987, the South Carolina Children’s Theatre (SCCT) is the state’s largest year-round educational children’s theatre. Its mission and purpose is to “educate and stimulate the minds of young people” through theatre performance, education, and outreach with the goal to build character and prepare young people for an “engaged” life of success.
