STC is a wonderfull theater company created for the enhancement of children's lives thru live theater, primarily performed in local community schools. As the downturned economic climate took schools' budgets with it, schools don't have the money for enrichment programs. We took that as a challenge to bring the kids to us with affordable after-school classes and summer theater camps. Both have been well-received and we're adding more! Our directors and tech people are fantastic teachers and the kids don't even know how much they are learning as they're having fun! Much continued success to STC!!

Schenectady Theater for Children brings quality theater to Capital District school children who, for many reasons may never ever see a live theater production! As an actor, it was a delight to watch the children's faces light up when we came on stage. After each show, the actors mingle with the kids. Their questions about the magic of live theater shows that STC has a place in a technological world! We can create a world on stage that the children bring home in their imaginations.

A myriad of volunteers each plays their role to make this entity stay alive. Shoestring is the operative word. STC offers so many different venues for children to be exposed to the arts - musical touring shows, public performances, summer camp, Great Minds.... and something new is always on the horizon. The caliber of people involved is truly remarkable in talent and heart. When I would crew, I always knew what was happening onstage even though I could not see it from the audible responses of the children in the audience. My favorite anecdote is of the little girl that so proudly told our producer that she loved watching plays and that she had seen a great many. When asked which plays she had seen, the child quickly replied with the names of the last four shows that we had performed at her school. STC was her source for the arts.
