Student organizations

Student Alternative Theatre Company

SATCo is theatre by students, for students. It is an outlet for Department of Theatre students to independently produce theatre in a safe, peer-supported atmosphere. They encourage the development of new works as well as experimentation with existing ones. Students organize all aspects of the production process.


SATCo produces a series of four short plays - a new one each week - throughout the fall and in January. Performances take place Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 12:45pm in the Barbara McIntyre Studio at the Phoenix Theatre. Admission is by donation (recommended $4).

Theatre Course Union (TCU)

The Theatre Course Union is a group of elected students who represent the student body of the Department of Theatre. TCU serves as a mediator for student concerns and acts as a liaison between students, faculty, and staff in the Department of Theatre.

TCU also organizes events for theatre students that build a sense of community within the Department of Theatre. All event proceeds go towards supporting the TCU’s emergency bursary program. Events include: a Meet and Greet for new students, the Halloween Celebration, Holiday Coffee House, Valentine’s Day Auction, and End of Year Party (in conjunction with the Department).
