SCU•Presents Performing Arts Center

SEE IT LIVE at SCU•Presents Performing Arts Center.  Are you ready to gasp, belly laugh, wonder, cry, grin from ear-to-ear, and reconnect with your arts family? You deserve an experience that brings you joy! Don’t you think? 

At the core of SCU•Presents PAC is our Arts for Social Justice Program, a vital outreach program that raises awareness of critical issues through different art mediums and is a catalyst for change in our community. 


Our project with the greatest impact focuses on our communities' most important asset: our childrenThe Arts for Social Justice program changes lives across Northern California with our touring presentations written based on books by Francisco Jiménez. These honest, powerful, and heartwarming semi-autobiographical plays follow the Jiménez family, an undocumented Mexican-American family, as they journey across the border through the fields of California. Students in 50 local schools have seen the plays and have been affected by the power of theatre!


A generous gift to SCU•Presents PAC is your chance to make an impact! Your donation of $25 gives each student a study guide, $100 to $500 funds a local school performance, while, $1,000 to $2,500 affords the opportunity to present the plays to migrant education programs in the Central Valley. Please consider donating so crucial work will continue to be offered through the Arts for Social Justice Program. Your gift will:

  • Bring Arts for Social Justice programming to our local schools and reach students with these compassionate plays. 
  • Allow SCU students to develop art projects focused on social justice issues.
  • Create a catalyst for change. 
  • Establish Arts for Social Justice partnerships and give voice to artists in your area. 


“It is not enough to be compassionate, you must act”

I hope you will join us in this bold and exciting endeavor to take artists into the community to affect positive social change. Imagine the world we can create together. We can’t do it without you.
