As always, general donations are appreciated. This year your donation will support repairs and renovations for our Building Fund. Your donation helps fund future projects, a safety net as any facility issues arise, and builds a community cash match for existing grants SCT has received. You can also give our annual festival show a leg up by donating to the Competition Travel Fund, which finances the costs that go into SCT representing its community in contests at the state, regional, and sometimes even (as in 2023) at the national level!
Season tickets for our 46th season are now on sale. This year’s season includes Bright Star>, a bluegrass musical fable that tells the story of one woman at two different points in her life: as a wild young thing growing up in the Blue Ridge Mountains; Little Women>, the heart-warming stage adaptation of the timeless and enduring classic novel about the March sisters' journey from childhood to maturity; Alabama Story, the Mississippi premiere of a story set in 1959 in Montgomery where a children's book about a black rabbit marrying a white rabbit stirs the passions of a segregationist Alabama senator and a no-nonsense librarian; Clue, the stage adaptation of the classic board game featuring six guests who are invited to a dinner party and wind up in a madcap, slapstick evening of blackmail, murder, mystery and laughs as the party guests must play the deadly game of puzzling out the culprit; and season extra, 39 Steps>, a face-paced show with over 150 zany characters (played by a cast of only four) who lead audiences through a tangled web of espionage, an onstage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, a chase on a moving train, and even some good old-fashioned romance!

Inspired by a real event and featuring the Grammy-nominated score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Broadway’s "Bright Star" tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past – and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives, with the story unfolding as a rich tapestry of deep emotion, beautiful melodies and powerfully moving performances. An uplifting theatrical journey that holds you tight in its grasp, Bright Star is as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful.
