$30,000 Goal

We are governed by an active and engaged board of fifteen members with varied professional affiliations. In 1942, in the midst of World War II, a group of committed Sacramento citizens were looking for ways to entertain the troops. Following a successful tour of local military bases, they formed the Sacramento Civic Repertory Theatre. On October 18, 1949, they expanded by opening the Eaglet Theatre, which would eventually be known by a few different names and move to a few different locations. Today, it is known as the Sacramento Theatre Company and housed in the H Street Theatre Complex. Currently, our primary activities include the Main Series, the Cabaret Series, and the School of the Arts. The Main Series includes the production and performance of seven major live theatre productions per season, running from October to May.

The School of the Arts contains six programs:
1. Young Professionals Conservatory, which includes five fully-produced Youth Series productions
2. Pre-Professional Ensemble Company
3. Pre-Professional Ensemble Program
4. ACT*DANCE*SING Camps
5. Professional Internship Program
6. School Partnership Program

STC also takes great pride in its Community Partnership Program, which is often another way that we are able to serve our mission of integrating professional theatre and theatre arts education. Through the Community Partnership Program, STC works with other area not-for-profit organizations to raise awareness about important topics and the work of other worthy groups that have some tie-in to our productions. Community Partners for the 2019-2020 season included The Sacramento Public Library, The Sacramento Comedy Foundation, The Children's Receiving Home, Sacramento Gay Men's Chorus, Wellspace Health, Food Literacy Center and The Sacramento Philharmonic and Opera!

Mission

The Sacramento Theatre Company (STC) strives to be a leader in integrating professional theatre with theatre arts education. STC produces engaging professional theatre, provides exceptional theatre training, and uses theatre as a tool for educational engagement.

Needs

$2,750 funds a full year of tuition for one Young Professionals Conservatory student. STC does not turn away students due to an inability to pay, and donor-funded scholarships help us honor this commitment.

$5,000 provides partial funding for one semester of an after school program. The School Partnership Program has more than doubled in size from its inception six years ago, and more schools are anxious to participate, if funds were available.

$25,000 funds the development and sponsorship of a new play. In the last five seasons, STC has presented a world premiere each year and is able to continue this work only with the support of donors and sponsors.

STC seeks a consistent lodging provider. As we expand the scope of our productions and programs, we need more in-kind/discounted housing options for out-of-area artists. Our current needs are outgrowing our resources.

STC is currently renovating its Design Studio to be equipped with adequate power, utilities, and workspaces and to allow STC to expand its production capacity with better technology and equipment. There is over $50,000 still to be raised to complete this project.
