We hope that you are safe and well during these unprecedented times.

In the video above, Artistic Director David Ivers and Managing Director Paula Tomei share the latest news about:

  • The upcoming season
  • Updates on A Christmas Carol
  • A new online series called SCR ​comm​UNITY
  • Our annual Gala

  • A reminder about your canceled performance ticket options

We invite you to watch the video and then review the details below.

2020-21 SEASON
We were hoping to announce more about SCR’s upcoming season at this point, but due to the ever-shifting COVID-19 pandemic, which seems to be changing almost daily, it is difficult to move forward with complete details. Rest assured that SCR is firm in its commitment to produce theatre in the next calendar year and you will be the first to know our plans.

UPDATE—A Christmas Carol 2020
We don’t foresee that we’ll be able to gather safely by the coming holiday season. So, unfortunately, we won’t be producing A Christmas Carol this year. But, A Christmas Carol will return in 2021, in its original production with Richard Doyle as Scrooge. If you already purchased tickets, you may exchange them into the 2021 production now, request a credit on account for your ticket value, exchange your tickets for an SCR gift certificate or receive a refund. Get complete details here.

In August, we’re launching a new community-based initiative consisting of a series of online readings, events, interviews and community-centered stories to keep you engaged and connected with SCR. We’re working with playwright and director Juliette Carrillo on the first 3 events, entitled as a group El Teatro de la Comida (The Theatre of Food). These free events explore the theatricality of a Mexican meal, with all its magnificent colors, textures and tastes and tap into the legacy, history and family lineage of food.

Our annual fundraising Gala also is moving online and the date is Thursday evening, Oct. 1​6. This event provides vitally important funds that enable us to serve tens of thousands of Orange County students through our education programs and it’s a wonderful opportunity to support SCR. Learn more.

NEW—Outside SCR
We’re taking some shows outside next year—two full productions under the stars—at one of our county’s great outdoor venues. We’ll update you as more information becomes available.

If you were affected by our canceled performances last spring,
and haven’t yet requested a credit on your account or a refund through our Box Office, you may still do so. If we don’t hear from you by Aug. 31, we’ll put your ticket money on account so you may use it in the future. Find all of your options here.

F​irst Night Subscribers
