Kim McCann-Lawson Memorial Scholarship

Our dear theatre colleague, Kim McCann-Lawson, passed on Sept. 15, 2023. Please join us for a celebration of life on Jan. 7, 2024 at 5:00 pm in the main auditorium on the Sacramento City College campus. Feel free to bring a snack to share, finger food is preferred. Drinks are welcome, and all must be non-alcoholic.

In memory of Kim, and honor of her involvement in the Theatre Department at SCC and her impact on so many of our students, we’re creating a scholarship in her memory. The “Kim McCann-Lawson Memorial Scholarship” will support SCC Theatre majors with financial need. We’re so glad her memory will live on through the students who will receive the scholarship in her name.  The minimum scholarship award at SCC is $500, which is what we will need to raise to be able to award a scholarship in her honor.

Please join us in contributing to this scholarship fund so we can reach this goal. We would love to be able to award this scholarship for multiple years, so if we can reach $1,000, that is even better! Please make your check payable to Los Rios Colleges Foundation and mail to: SCC Kim McCann-Lawson Memorial ScholarshipLos Rios Colleges Foundation1919 Spanos CourtSacramento, CA 95825 You can also make a gift online by visiting the SCC philanthropy site at When using the online gift form, under designation please choose “other” and enter Kim McCann-Lawson Memorial Scholarship in the box.

    Hi! I was interested in auditioning for one of your shows but wasn’t sure if you had an age minimum for auditions. Thanks!

      Hi Isabella, it depends on the show. For most, we prefer actors to be at least 16 and willing to register for a class (it’s free.) If we have an age minimum, we will usually post it on the audition notice.
