Theatre Arts

Every year, dozens of kids learn the craft of theatre and discover something bold and creative about themselves.

A Place to Perform

Salesian Club Theatre

Mary Powelson, Artistic Director
Matthew Grandy, Music Director
Sally Dana, Comedy Director

Since 2006, Salesian Club Theatre prides itself on providing San Francisco youth the opportunity to do plays and take classes at every level. Our mission is to nurture young artists and to encourage the life-long love of the Theatre.

Based in our North Beach neighborhood, SCT operates in two spaces:  the Black Box Theatre and the Salesian Auditorium.   Every year, we create theatre with over dozens of young artists and adult volunteers,  producing three shows as well as running several classes and workshops.

SCT is truly a community theatre, and everyone is welcome.
