Four Play: A Showcase of Play Readings

The South Simcoe Theatre in Cookstown is holding auditions for Four Play: A Showcase of Play Readings to be held June 5th to 8th, 2014.  Auditions are by appointment on April 12th, 2014, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  To schedule an appointment contact Christina Luck through This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by telephone at 705-458-4422.

For the 7th year, SST is pleased to showcase a variety of new plays.  A thoughtful and engaging line up is on offer, featuring long and short works by writers from Cookstown, Alliston, Innisfil, Minesing, Toronto and New York.  No physical acting or memorization is required.  There will be four to six rehearsals and one performance of each play.  Rehearsals start May 6 and a schedule will be available at the auditions.  No preparation is necessary.  A panel of directors will ask participants to read an excerpt from one or more of the selected plays.  Note that, because of the casual nature of these readings, age ranges listed are flexible.  Some plays may require stage directions to be read to the audience.  This could be male or female of any age.  More information on the plays, the directors and the cast requirements can be found on the AUDITIONS page.


The present production of the South Simcoe Theatre is Dracula. This is the original 1927 play from the Bram Stoker novel.  For more details, check out our SHOWS & EVENTS page

Opening night was Thursday, March 27th, 2014.  There are performances for three weekends on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm, and on Sundays at 2:00 pm.  The last performance is Sunday, April 13th.  Tickets, which are $18, can be purchased through the Box Office at 705-458-4432.  Note that tickets cannot be ordered or purchased through the website.
