On April 10, Sun Lakes Community Theatre presented their annual Theatre Arts Scholarship to Greyson Smith from Hamilton High School. Each year, SLCT awards a scholarship to a graduating senior from the Chandler School District who is majoring in theatre. Greyson will major in Performing Arts at Loyola University.

Greyson has experience as a theatre director, music director, choreographer, scenic and technical director as well as an actor, singer and piano player. He has won numerous awards which include best male lead in a musical awarded by ASU for Shrek, the Musical and Legally Blonde. Greyson has also won the National Youth Arts award for his performance as the best male lead in School of Rock.

SLCT is proud to support the drama programs of all the high schools in the Chandler Unified School District. In 2017, SLCT donated $750 to each of the Chandler high schools. We urge the entire Sun Lakes community to support the drama programs of the Chandler Unified School District high schools by attending their theatre productions. Also, we encourage new SLCT residents to join our Sun Lakes theatre organization, attend our monthly fun meetings and purchase tickets to enjoy SLCT productions. In this way, you will help us continue to support local theatre productions and theatre arts education throughout our communities.
