Community Theater Announces 2022 Season

“Silver City Community Theatre (SCCT) is back!” according to MaryAnn Marlar, SCCT President. “Thanks to Wendy Spurgeon, our tireless Artistic Director, we have an SCCT Season through February 2023.

“Most SCCT productions will be at our new home, SC Starlight Theatre, 20th and Gold Sts, Silver City. Some productions are tentatively scheduled, but we want to let our fans know what to put on their calendars and to encourage performers of all ages to be on the lookout for casting calls/auditions. 

“You can get email alerts from SCCT by signing up at and by following us on Facebook and Instagram.

“SCCT was sustained through the pandemic by Zoom productions and by SCCT Radio Hour, 5 pm every Sunday on KURU/GMCR 89.1FM. Our return to the stage was ‘Bug’ presented by SCCT Youth Project. Both are mainstays of the upcoming season.
