Join us for SST's Canadian take on Cinderella. Includes handsome (and not so handsome) hockey players, the evil stepmother - even Don (Dalvador) Cherry may show up. Help us celebrate our wonderful country's 150th birthday by bringing family and friends to this fun-filled production, and "take off to the Great White North" - panto style!
The 39 Steps
Written by Patrick Barlow and John Buchan
February 8th to February 25th, 2018
This wonderfully inventive comedy thriller features a small company of fearless actors playing 150 roles on a roller coaster ride of fast-paced fun. Follow the adventures of our handsome hero, complete with British gung-ho and pencil moustache, as he encounters dastardly murders, double-crossing secret agents, and, of course, devastatingly beautiful women. A hilarious parody of John Buchan's spy thriller and Hitchcock's classic film and a multi-award winning play.
Harvest Moon Rising
Music and Lyrics by Leslie Arden; Book by Peggy Sample
April 12th to April 29th, 2018
Centring on a farming couple and their community, this moving contemporary musical looks at the decline of the family farm in Canada. As a poignant counter-point, it also moves through time to the experiences of the pioneer woman whose family was the first to farm the same land. This important, relevant, Canadian story is told through the beautiful music of one of Ontario's best-loved composers.
