2021 Fall SATCo Season
Introducing our second virtual season
SATCo has been creating live theatrical works for over a decade. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, SATCo has transitioned from an in-person season into a virtual season. Read below for more information on our typical season and our current virtual 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.
Our Virtual Season
This year, SATCo has transitioned into producing two entirely virtual season. As opposed to our typical season, all works will be presented digitally. In our Fall 2020 season, this translated into a series of radio plays that were recorded and broadcast through the online platforms of Zoom and YouTube. This season, SATCo is creating a series of smaller works that will be distributed online in a variety of ways such as staged readings, workshops, and puppet theatre.
