Theatre Performance Scholarships

One of the most challenging pieces of advice that I am asked to give my graduating theatre students is what college or acting school is the best choice for continuing their theatre education. Many times my first choice is SFCC.

The students I have sent to SFCC have many advantages over four year schools. On average, they perform in two shows a year (sometimes more) while at four year colleges and universities they are "earning" their way to perform their junior or senior year. 

Under the direction of Eric Yazell and Tim Wells they are getting top notch training in acting, technical theatre and self discipline.The theatre facility is one of the best in the state, and the shows rival most productions at major colleges and universities. Many disregard the community college as a viable option for a young theatre hopeful. I personally feel it is one of the best choices out there! And the best community college in the state for theatre is State Fair Community College.
