WHO WE ARE
Skeleton Crew Theater (SCT) is an independent volunteer-run theater organization that performs interactive theatrical productions and services for public and private events. SCT transforms any space into a dazzling and customizable display with hand-crafted props, sets, animatronics, music, and special effects. Our roaming puppet characters, such as our popular Troll brothers, are also available to enliven any event.
SCT is a mentorship-based nonprofit that values project-based learning and community leadership. Our crew is largely composed of high school students with interests in theater, sculpture, and voice acting.
Every October, SCT hosts an original Halloween production. (To learn more about our 2019 Halloween show, click here. ) SCT shows are adaptable to all environments and immersive for the audience, setting us apart from other theater productions. Shows play out as part scavenger hunt, part theater, with main characters that are larger-than-life puppets and animatronic creatures operated by puppeteers and voice actors. Participants, accompanied by a mysterious guide called "The Seer", are led through a mysterious forest, filled with strange and wonderful sights. Along the way, participants can choose to interact with this cast of characters, collect clues and artifacts, and ultimately determine the ending of their own show.
SCT tailors each show to the philosophy of "The Hero’s Journey", the classic mythical story structure that has aided such works as George Lucas’s Star Wars Trilogy and JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series. At SCT, YOU play the role of the “hero” in a tale of myth and mystery, and your choices alone determine the end of the story.
