For eight nights, participants will work with local playwright and teacher Kim Fahner, and Kelsey Rutledge of STC, to create a collaborative play.

Two small groups will meet on Monday evenings from November 15 to January 17 for 90 minutes, with a two-week break during the winter break.

An evening of celebration and staged reading of the two plays will take place in the spring of 2022 so that family members can hear the works come to life.

This program is open to high school students only. To apply, students are asked to write a one-page monologue for a character who is stuck on a boat in the middle of a very large lake, with no oars, paddles or sail.

Submit your monologue by November 1 to Ralph McIntosh, SC Education Director, at [email protected] There is no charge to register for this program.

Six to 10 students will be accepted. Successful applicants will be notified the week of November 8. The participation fee for this eight-week program is $ 200 (taxes included). Students already enrolled in another STC program pay only $ 180.

Masks must be worn at all times inside the building. Hand sanitizer will be readily available throughout the building and in the washrooms.
