About SCCT Players

Silver City has no shortage of actors: some very experienced and others not at all. What they all have in common is a desire to act on a stage. With each new production we hold widely publicized open auditions. Every person who tries out for a part is treated with sensitivity and respect. Yes, rehearsals are demanding, but we do our best to accommodate the everyday responsibilities of our actors. Our productions are living proof that open auditions work.

About SCCT Productions

SCCT productions draw on the community for directors, stage managers, set design and construction, technical support, costuming, makeup, programs, tickets, right down to ticket takers and refreshments at performances. Still a young theater company with budget constraints, SCCT values, respects and gives thanks for the energy, talent, and dedication shown by the volunteers who work with us to provide the community with quality theater experiences.

He focuses on the Wing Chun style of Kung Fu which uses technique and speed over force and power. He has developed a unique blended style of art that is called Shaolin Chuan Do Kung Fu.
