SEACT offers year-round instruction with a mission to foster an environment that inspires young artists to dream, create, explore, think and connect, while encouraging self-expression and education. We believe that theatre has the power to connect, transform, and heal. Through its youth programming, SEACT is developing artists and future art appreciators with skills in teamwork, problem-solving, communication, and confidence.
Classes run in sessions with varying content and ages. SEACT welcomes students of every ability to join us!
Greater Tuna is a comedy about a small town named Tuna. The wacky inhabitants of this town -- men, women, children and animals -- are all played by two skillful, transformative actors who must change parts at a rather breakneck speed and use inventive voicework. The day in Tuna, the third smallest town in Texas, begins—as usual—with Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie at the microphones of Radio OKKK. Topping the headlines is the winning entry in the American Heritage Essay Contest, entitled “Human Rights, Why Bother?”
And so the day continues, as Tuna’s citizens parade across the stage in all their outrageous and irreverent glory, commenting on life, politics, and what makes them (and sometimes us) tick.
Ages vary by location. Join SEACT for a week of theatre learning about how a show comes together and your child's important role. Details on locations and dates will be available in March, 2021.

By David Lindsay-Abaire.
A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate in the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, so when the cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with new-arrival Marilyn, she has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. A seemingly harmless bet between the old women quickly escalates into a dangerous game of one-upmanship that reveals not just the tenacity of these worthy opponents, but also deeper truths that each would rather remain hidden. Directed by Amy Beck.
