Awards

Since its inception in 1969, SCP has maintained an open-door policy, welcoming volunteers of all ages to participate in its programs as cast members, production staff, board members, and more. Every season, every show, we have volunteers that help us in extraordinary ways, and we thank them with these awards. If you want to help us and possibly earn a spot on this hall of fame, learn about volunteer positions.
