The South Carolina Speech and Theatre Association is a professional organization that promotes the study of all areas of performance and oral communication: acting, oral interpretation/performance studies, theatre, broadcasting, public speaking, discussion and debate, and speech/theatre education. SCSTA serves both the public and private schools and the colleges and universities in South Carolina through three spring festival competitions, and through recognition of outstanding contributors to our efforts.

SCSTA holds three division festival competitions annually (College, High School, and Middle School).

Festivals for Middle School, High School, and College students are held annually. These one-day festivals include individual and small group events in a variety of categories such as Audition Monologue, Duet Acting, Original Monologues, Reader's Theatre, Impromptu Speaking, and Musical Theatre. All participants receive feedback from adjudicators. Students receiving the highest scores in their rounds advance to finals, and the top 3 performers in each category are recognized at an  awards ceremony at the end of the day. 

Festival Competitions


Membership is open to all persons interested in theatre and/or oral communication at all levels.
