SJCT’s educational programs for adults and children enrich the lives of island residents and visitors of all ages.
Our workshops and theater camps introduce new thespians to the theater arts and provide skills and development opportunities for experienced actors, directors, designers and costumers.
During the year, SJCT staff, island theatre arts leaders and visiting performing artists host classes that may include such topics as acting techniques, sound and lighting design or stage managing.
The San Juan Community Youth Theatre program nurtures the intellectual, artistic and personal development of children and youth through multi-arts education, performing opportunities, and extraordinary theatre experiences.

Calling all San Juan Island playwrights! We want YOU for San Juan Community Theatre’s 2018 Playwrights Festival!
What is the Playwrights Festival? It is an opportunity for new and veteran playwrights alike to develop and present their work onstage. Festival performances of new works, created by islanders, will take place September 6th through September 9th in the Gubelman Theatre.
How can you get involved? Registration is now open for a series of workshops, readings, and mentoring available from mid-May until the script submission deadline: July 21st. All scripts meeting minimum requirements (see guidelines below) will be produced in the festival or performed as a reading at the festival matinee. Registration is open to all San Juan Island residents. Registration forms are available in the Box Office, or you can click the link below to download one.
What if you don’t want to participate in the development aspect of the festival? Playwrights are not required to participate in the development program to submit scripts for consideration. Scripts will be presented anonymously to a selection committee to determine what will be produced and what will be performed in the reading.
Don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity to learn new skills, or further develop your own, as a playwright, and to share your story with your island community! Join us!
