About SCT

In 1956, the Drama Group of the Southington Woman's Club produced Goodbye My Fancy at Hatton Elementary School. The following year, they produced Jane. The productions were so successful, the group wanted to continue putting on shows for the community. Realizing that to continue with such elaborate productions, a broader spectrum of people was needed, the idea of a community theatre was born.

Spearheaded by Mrs. Betty Price, who was the President of the Southington Woman's Club, Mrs. Eleanor Rowley, Chairman of the Drama Group, and Mrs. Yvonne Clarke, Resident Director, and many other members of the Woman's Club, the theatre group was organized with funds donated by the club.  The first 50 members were designated "charter members" and the first meeting was held in August 1957 around the pool at the home of William Ashwell, Prospect Street.

Yvonne was SCT's Resident Director for the first 10 years.  She not only directed but also taught the members all there was to know about lighting and set construction.

SCT incorporated on October 18, 1957, and its first production staged was The Tender Trap on November 21-23, 1957 at Hatton School Auditorium.
