San Jose Children’s Theater

Quality theater for ages 5-25

The South Bay Children’s Musical Theater (SBCMT) is dedicated to offering high quality performing arts experiences to kids ages 5-25 in San Jose, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, Cupertino, Mountain View, Fremont, and surrounding South Bay communities.

Whether singing and dancing in a multimedia musical revue, appearing in an original film on the silver screen, or recording a song in a professional sound studio, SBCMT participants and families enjoy a unique experience with big production value for a limited time commitment. Unlike most productions that offer a handful of parts with leading characters, our one of a kind shows are custom created for each cast, allowing us to give everyone opportunities for singing, speaking and dancing roles. Local South Bay kids get a chance to shine in our colorful and elaborate shows featured at the Saratoga Civic Theater. Our convenient 10-week program with one rehearsal per week, makes participation in SBCMT productions fun and easy for busy South Bay families.

Join our newsletter today so we can keep you informed of future SBCMT auditions, workshops and upcoming South Bay productions.
