Our ninth season focuses on all types of family dynamics, be it between brothers, or sons and fathers, or modern relationships that form self-perceived family bonds in four plays that will shock and amuse and ultimately, stir your soul.
Featuring works written by Tennessee Williams, Sam Shepard, Joseph M. Paprzycki and Albert Innaurato, season 9 will make you gasp, laugh and cry. It's truly a season of theatre that will stir the soul!
Opening January 10 and running through January 26 is the World Premiere of EXPRESS TRACKS written by Joseph M. Paprzycki and directed by Lee Kiszonas. This new play, workshopped here at SCTC, takes place on a RiverLINE train between Camden and Trenton. And, begs the question, "Would you step over Christ to get into church?"
The South Camden Theatre Company is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit professional theatre company dedicated to helping revitalize the City of Camden, New Jersey by producing meaningful, professional theater in the City’s Waterfront South District. Founded by a playwright, the South Camden Theatre Company stages seldom-seen, classic plays and original works as the resident theatre company at Waterfront South Theatre. South Camden Theatre Company is a proud member of The New Jersey Theatre Alliance, South Jersey Cultural Alliance, and the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance.
Situated just a block south of Broadway and Ferry Avenues in the Waterfront South neighborhood of Camden, this gorgeous state-of-the-art theater was designed to be reminiscent of Walt's Cafe, the corner bar, that once stood on the corner of Jasper Street and 4th Street.
Today, 96 seats and thousands of theatre patrons a year have replaced the bar stools and shipyard workers that at one time called this corner, "home".
Funding has been made possible in part by the Camden County Cultural & Heritage Commission at Camden County College, through the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
