History of Seraphim Theatre
"Seraphim Theatrical Entertainment produces an exciting atmosphere for all to learn, perform, and share their God given talents with the world."
Back in 2014, the idea that became Seraphim Theatrical Entertainment was to be more than just a theatre. It was also inspire people, teach, perform and bring light, hope and happiness to all those involved. Seraphim is focused on producing shows that the whole family can enjoy. It remains the joint creation of husband and wife team; Bridgett J. Farruggia and Stephen Farruggia. Together they started Seraphim from the ground up with nothing more than some pocket change, a dream and a lot of hard work. From humble beginnings of producing shows and classes wherever they could find a space, to their own building and art deco theatre they now call home. Through it all, the idea of Seraphim has never changed, its just gotten bigger. Producing big city quality shows right here in the Black Hills. Seraphim was created to personify the belief that all of us are born with God given talents and that they should be shared joyously and humbly with the whole world.
