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 actors, well staged, lit, blocked, and set. The sets are often so beautiful and appropriate that the audience gasps or murmurs its approval. The comedies always bring us to tears, we laugh so hard - such a wonderful escape from real life! SCP's pool of actors includes many masters of the art of comedy. Beware the parking, though - the theater is located in the Stockade, and there's a smallish parking lot across the street, but if you don't nab one of those spaces you might have a search on your hands and have to park several blocks away. If you come really early to park, you can't get into the theater - the doors open just 20-30 minutes before the curtain.

Schenectady Civic Players is my favorite community theater. I've seen so many performances there. The actors are always exceptional. Since it's rather small there are no bad seats. I was there today and was near the back and could see and hear perfectly. The price, $15, is great!!!
