Sauk Valley Theatre Alliance

The summer of 2014 marked the beginning of the Sauk Valley Theatre Alliance. With resources becoming increasingly limited, in order to continue to provide our students and this community with quality theatre experiences, a partnership has been negotiated between Sauk Valley Community College Theatre, Woodlawn Arts Academy and Sterling Public Schools (Centennial Auditorium). These organizations recognize the value and power of the arts as well as the incredible talent in the Sauk Valley area. We believe this alliance will positively impact our programs and the development of theatre in this community.
