For the 8th year, SST is pleased to showcase a variety of plays.  A thoughtful and engaging line up is on offer, featuring long and short works by writers from Bradford, Orillia, Minesing and Toronto.  No physical acting or memorization is required.  There will be four to six rehearsals and one performance of each play.  Rehearsals start May 7 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: 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.  For information on the readings and on the requirements, please consult the AUDITIONS page.
