  NEWS & EVENTS  
  2017 FESTIVAL RESULTS  
 

The results (including THEA winner photos) of the 2017 ACT-CO Festival are now posted to the website.

Don't be shy.  Have a look: 


Purchase of Additional THEAs
When more than one, but less than four, persons are NAMED as the award winners, two additional THEAs may be purchased by the Group. For example if three persons are NAMED as the award winners, then one THEA is presented to the three and, if they choose, two additional THEAs may be purchased.  If more than three persons are NAMED as winners, or if an ensemble is recognized without naming any individuals, then no additional THEAs may be purchased.

  South Simcoe Theatre is Clearing Off the Bookshelves!  
 

We have culled our "library" of scripts and books.
Many individual plays and a few sets of librettos/scripts particularly for Gilbert & Sullivan shows, Anne of Green Gables and My Fair Lady are available.

We'd like some money for them, but mainly want to get them to people who will use or value them.
Please call SOUTH SIMCOE THEATRE 705-458-4432 if you want to talk about what we have.
