They see the joy and the confidence that builds through the weeks, months and—often—years that students spend in the program. They are happy to share some comments with you.

Parents

  • "As a single mother, I have the usual concerns. Is my child safe? Is he learning something positive? I need not have worried. My son had a great experience at SCR. He looked forward to every class and enjoyed every aspect of the program. From what he shared with me, I could see that the classes incorporated teamwork, creativity and loads of laughter. The staff was wonderful and the experience was truly a gift that continues to give. His creativity is leaping forward."

  • "The SCR Theatre Conservatory has been an amazing gift for our daughter. At SCR she not only explores the character, but she also discovers herself as an actor and as a person. Her experiences here inspires her in all other areas of her life."

  • "Four of our boys have participated in SCR’s Theatre Conservatory. The process-based approach to theater has allowed them to build their skills from the ground up, while sparking their imaginations at each step along the way. Beyond the artistic value, the staff has fostered a positive environment that encourages all the students to reach beyond themselves and broaden their awareness of the world around them. The experiences our boys have gained at SCR will continue to benefit them both personally and in whatever field they choose to pursue."
