Current Arts Season

There’s always something artistically amazing happening on campus! Our Current Arts Season features plays and music concerts in the fall, followed by a spring semester filled with great plays, concerts, recitals, and a new Daum exhibition. We’ll close out the year with our annual Student Art Show, Student Theatre Showcase and Musical Retrospect. Join us!

Daum Museum of Contemporary Art

The world-renowned Daum Museum of Contemporary Art on campus features a diverse permanent collection and offers three exhibition cycles each year and up to 15 exhibitions.

Support the Arts

The Arts entertain and enlighten; they spark innovation and creativity; and they improve academic performance. For these reasons and a host of others, we invite you to support the Arts at SFCC. Contributing is easy, and genuinely appreciated.

While we do have our Children's Musical coming up next week...we are excited to announce that we have finalized our details for our upcoming Spring Season! Coming this April, a new modern rock musical....

FIRST DATE: The Musical Comedy
Book and Lyrics by Austin Winsberg
Music by Michael Weiner
Directed by Ryan P. Mahannah

Performances: April 22nd-25th, 2021**

**This show is suggested for audience members 16 years and older due to adult language and themes. Audience discretion is advised.

THE STORY: When blind date newbie Aaron is set up with serial-dater Casey, a casual drink at a busy New York restaurant turns into a hilarious high-stakes dinner. As the date unfolds in real time, the couple quickly finds that they are not alone on this unpredictable evening. In a delightful and unexpected twist, Casey and Aaron's inner critics take on a life of their own when other restaurant patrons transform into supportive best friends, manipulative exes and protective parents, who sing and dance them through ice-breakers, appetizers and potential conversational land mines. Can this couple turn what could be a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives???

Coming to SFCC Theatre in just over two weeks! The 2020 Children's Musical...

JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH!
Book by Timothy Allen
Music and Lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul
Directed by Ryan P. Mahannah

THE STORY: When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that results in a tremendous peach... and launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly, James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach, among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities, but after it falls from the tree and rolls into the ocean, the group faces hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James' quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family. The dangerous voyage is a success, but the adventure takes a whole new twist once they land on the Empire State Building.

Performances: November 13-15 and November 20-22! Friday and Saturday at 7pm and Saturday and Sunday at 2pm!

TICKETS: Admission is totally FREE for all to this production. Donations will be collected at the door and will benefit the SFCC Theatre Arts Program.
