"It's amazing what a little responsibility, teamwork and spotlight can do" - John Bisceglie

San Francisco Children’s Musical Theater (SFCMT) is dedicated to offering high quality performing arts experiences to young actors ages 5-21 in the San Francisco Bay Area. Since 1985, SFCMT Artistic Director and Founder, John Bisceglie, has directed and choreographed hundreds of community, commercial, and professional productions featuring actors of all ages. For nine years, Bisceglie held the title of Artistic Director for San Jose Parks and Recreation’s Young People’s Theater, and has been serving Gilroy’s Community Services Department in the same capacity for the past nineteen years. John is thrilled to expand his colorful and elaborate children’s theater productions to the San Francisco community.

In 2009, Bisceglie directed and produced the “SF Follies” in San Francisco’s Union Square Theater District which ran for 13 weeks at the Actors Theatre in Union Square. The show received four Bay Area Critics Circle awards including Best Show, Best Director, Best Choreographer and Best Ensemble (out of 400 Bay Area shows reviewed in 2009).

Bisceglie and the team at SFCMT inspire kids to activate their individual creative aspirations and instill the motto that “everyone has talent and can succeed” regardless of age, experience and natural ability. SFCMT believes in empowering young talent and find it amazing what a little responsibility, teamwork and spotlight can do. You will always see a variety of talents and ages in SFCMT productions, from first timers to seasoned veterans. Ultimately, they always exceed SFCMT's expectations as well as their own and are an inspiration to all who see them perform.

SFCMT is passionate about theater and believe it to be as important to a child’s upbringing as reading, writing, and arithmetic. Cast members are encouraged to naturally develop their imagination and self esteem while building lifelong skills such as creativity, dedication, self-discipline, and cooperation.

Bisceglie is excited to bring his children’s musical theater productions to SF and honored to perform at the Palace of Fine Arts Theater, a 1000 seat performing arts theater located in the Marina District of San Francisco.

SFCMT's exciting and convenient 10-week program, with “Saturday only” rehearsals, makes participation in productions fun and easy for busy Bay Area families.
