DUE TO STATE MANDATES SCT has suspended all shows for the 19-20 season, including all performances of the best summer ever!. IF YOU ARE A TICKET HOLDER FOR AN UPCOMING PERFORMANCE, WE WILL REACH OUT TO YOU DIRECTLY IN THE COMING DAYS.

Summer means sleepaway camps, days with friends by the pool, and late nights gazing at the stars. For nine-year-old Maurice Abernathy Anderson, a significant loss and one little lie means his summer just got more complicated. Written and performed by nationally acclaimed storyteller, Kevin Kling, and featuring rousing sing-a-longs, Best Summer Ever joyfully explores the way childhood is measured by sights, sounds, feelings, and love.
