Student Organizations


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, Christmas Coffee House, Valentine’s Day Auction, and End of Year Party (in conjunction with the Department).


Student Alternative Theatre Company (SATCo)

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 4:45pm in the MacIntyre Studio at the Phoenix Theatre. Admission is by dontation (recommended $5).
