Celebrate the 50 year anniversary of this groundbreaking musical!
SCT will take you back to the Age of Aquarius with the American Tribal Love-Rock Musical, Hair. It has been 50 years since the hippies and their shining, gleaming, steaming, flaxen, waxen locks invaded Broadway. Created during the Vietnam War and sexual revolution of the late 60s, many of the songs became anthems of the counter culture peace movement and inspired a whole generation to make love, not war.
The outrageous staging, dress, language, and social commentary are as relevant, unsettling, and exciting as they were in 1968.
Enjoy the psychedelic, groovy trip back.

Enjoy the sequel to SCT’s successful 2013 production of Lend Me a Tenor
Acclaimed playwright Ken Ludwig delights audiences with the hysterical antics of world class tenors, their egos, their wives (and their girlfriends). A Comedy of Tenors is a cleverly written sex farce set in a plush Paris hotel suite in the 1930s. Beautiful gowns and tuxedos share the spotlight with skimpy undergarments and mistaken identities as love and romance play out through carefully choreographed door slamming and unexpected plot twists.

It’s a battle for the ages … or in this case, the aging.
Two elderly women of vastly different temperaments are thrown together as roommates in a coveted sunny room with a view at Bristol Place Senior Living Facility. The cranky Abby is out to get rid of the annoyingly cheerful new arrival, Marilyn. They make a wager that escalates into a dangerous and funny game of one-upsmanship. David Lindsay-Abaire’s story delves into deep emotions while the laughs keep coming.
Nice Work If You Can Get It

Bootleggers meet high society in this romantic musical comedy
It’s 1927, and three gin smugglers are looking for a place to stash 400 cases of contraband. The beach house of playboy aristocrat Jimmy Winter becomes the perfect hiding spot for the hootch and the breeding ground for unexpected love. Featuring songs by the Gershwins, you’ll love the familiar melodies of “Someone to Watch Over Me,” “S’Wonderful,” “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off,” and “Fascinating Rhythm.”
