did not like the fact that there is not a railing going in or coming in. There is not an elevator... Alot of stairs to climb --maybe if they can raise enough money they will have a elevator. Older people need to be careul on th e stairs.

SCP gives consistently good theater at reasonable prices. Avg ticket price for an adult is $17.50. The theater itself is a lovely old building and nicely equipped. It will soon also have an elevator available for the mobility challenged. They offer a wide variety of shows and always keep their seasons new and different. There is always a good balance... More

We've been season ticket holders for a decade or so. The plays are always well chosen, with a mix of recent materials, classics, and comedy and drama (with an occasional musical). They usually do a great job of production and really have a "stock company" of actors who appear once or twice each season. Good sight lines from anywhere in... More

Went here recently for the first time and will be back. SCP is a little community theater many decades old that is still bringing the live theater experience to Schenectady. The space itself is intimate, the only downside being that one must climb a flight of y to get to the theater proper. That said, the company has an addition... More

I have been a subscriber for the last 6-7 years; I buy two tickets and take a different friend to each play. The cost of a ticket is extremely reasonable ($11), and the productions are very good. I have an older friend who is hard of hearing who appreciates the headsets that are offered at SCP. They are great about... More

I've lived in the area for quite awhile, and this is the first time I've attended a performance. I'm sorry I waited so long. The singing and acting were great, and the price of a ticket was incredibly affordable. Even free food at intermission!

This little theater group produces terrific plays at a wonderful value. If you like off beat theater and a great value, this is the place. No matter what the production, it is professionally executed. Well done!

If you enjoy good theater, this is the place to be in Schenectady. Whether it be comedy or drama, the acting is always top-notch. The building itself is small, so you can an intimate vibe.

SCP offers about five productions a year, starring local talent (and what talent it is!), plus free readings. If you are a season subscriber, you pay just $15 for each play, which I think is the best entertainment value in the Capital Region. You can't go wrong with any of the plays. They are well chosen for their network of... More
