2022 Spring SATCo Season
Our Typical Season
Every fall and spring semester, we put out a call for students to submit short plays, 30-50 minutes in length. We choose three plays for each season. Then, teams of students are put together for each play: directors, designers, stage managers, and technical teams. Auditions are held by the directors to cast their productions. It’s a very quick process; each show has 1-4 weeks to rehearse, depending on their slot in the season. Each show then has three performances. The shows are performed in the Barbara MacIntyre Theatre at the Phoenix, a little black-box studio theatre that offers flexibility for student designers.
Last year, SATCo produced two entirely virtual seasons. We were able to offer a variety of digital performances, including radio plays, staged readings, workshops, and puppet theatre. We are thrilled to be able to return to live theatre this season!

With a ridiculous cast of characters, this absurdist piece draws on elements of Dada and Futurism to explore…. well, you’ll have to see for yourself.
