Discover. Develop. Play. Perform.

Theatre isn’t all about being the centre of attention. It builds confidence and self-esteem, challenges an individual's comfort level and breaks down social barriers.The STC Academy introduces participants of all ages and experience levels to the magic of theatre in a supportive, social, and non-threatening environment. Our classes are led by skilled and highly-trained instructors with extensive teaching backgrounds. Students are exposed to a wide range of games, exercises, and experiences that are tailored to any skill level. All classes end with a presentation for family and friends.

Playwrights' Junction is on hiatus for this season. More details about the 17|18 season will be posted in the fall.

Over the past five years, more than 30 emerging playwrights and writers have taken part in the annual Playwrights’ Junction, a 12-week program intended to develop local voices in a workshop environment.

Each group of six to 10 writers engages in an exploration of the playmaking process, experimenting with different methods of inspiration and unearthing local stories.

Writers then have the opportunity to see one of their works read in front of an informal audience.

Playwrights’ Junction is led by STC Playwright-in-Residence, Matthew Heiti.
