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!
