SVCT Scores Again at Artsalot
Artsalot Small Theatre Award winners are chosen from several hundred shows presented by amateur and professional groups in the Silicon Valley Area during the past season. Our Playhouse is only average in size among these candidates, but we consistently rise to the top in their ratings.
This year our production of Fiddler On the Roof was one of three winners in their Standout Classic Productions category, shows written prior to 1960. They look for attention to acting, authenticity and interpretation along with such things as accents and consistency of period representations.

South Valley Civic Theatre certainly got its share of the love.
- Youth Theater: South Valley Civic Theatre
SVCT is proud of its program of encouraging young actors and helping them grow. We present a children's show and a teen show every year, in addition to at least one other show with multiple roles for young people. A number of our youngsters have as many as eight or ten shows under their belt by the time they move up to the teen shows where they get a real workout focused on singing, dancing, and acting.
- Local Actor: Christopher Bezanson
Chris starred as Josh Baskin in Big: the musical in 2013, and the year before as Ozzie in On the Town. In 2011 he had roles as Rocky in Damn Yankees, Harv in Curtains and Elisha J. Whitney in Anything Goes. Before that he was in The King and I, played Pappy Yokum in Li'l Abner, and Fat Sam in Bugsy Malone Jr.. Chris is a prime example of an actor who has grown through SVCT's youth program.
- Local Actress: Rosilind Farrotte
All right, we can't claim full credit for Roz, though we think of her as part of our theater family and she has brightened our stage a number of times including her roles in Blythe Spirit, Inspecting Carol, Nunsense, and Noises Off.
