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. To advance this mission, SCCT commissioned Craig Gaulden Davis to master plan and design its new headquarters in the heart of downtown Greenville.

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.
