Stay Tuned for Our 2018 Summer Program Details

The Sylvania Community Arts Commission (SCAC) offers a summer theatre production workshop camp for students ages 10 – 17. This 2-week workshop, taught by director Irina Zaurov, takes place at the Franciscan Center of Lourdes University and culminates in a free staged production. In 2017 “the Fairy Tale Network” was performed on Thursday August 3rd at 10 am in the theater. These shows are free and open to the public – we hope to see you at our next one!

“The Fairy Tale Network” is a comedic play about brainstorming and going through the process of putting TV shows on air. The three blind mice must come up with a new show concept because ratings are low at the Fairy Tale Network. The Cat C.E.O. is demanding that a new TV show be produced by the end of the day, OR ELSE! With the help of their fairytale friends, the mice come up with a brilliant idea for a show that appeals to kids nowadays.
