About Us

About The South Simcoe Theatre

The South Simcoe Theatre (SST) is a not-for-profit community theatre dedicated to offering a wide variety of high quality productions. Each year, we present a program of contemporary as well as traditional theatre works.  SST’s vision is to produce Great Community Theatre.


Our mission is to promote the integral role that theatre and the arts play in the structure of our  society,  and  to initiate innovative ways to improve the quality of life in our community through inclusion, participation, education, and entertainment in a safe and welcoming place.

By bringing theatre to the community, we hope to not only entertain and delight regular theatre goers,  but to also engage and encourage a new generation of theatre lovers.

SST’s first season was in 1966-1967. Since September 1983, our home has been the Old Town Hall in Cookstown, Ontario.  September 2016 marked SST’s 50th Anniversary.

Getting Involved at SST

There are many ways that you can become involved with SST! From acting to set design to working backstage, or being part of the play selection committee, there is no shortage of opportunities for adults and youth alike.  If you would like to find out more about our opportunities, or to volunteer your time for a production by taking tickets, working as a front of house or box office volunteer, drop us a line at and let us know what your interests are. Students age 14 and up are welcome and volunteer hours for school are available.  

Another way to give back and get involved is by becoming a member of the Board of Directors. Each September, SST holds its Annual General Meeting at which time nominations are tabled and our Board is formed. Each Director is elected to a 2 year term with an opportunity for renewal.

Land Acknowledgement

The South Simcoe Theatre acknowledges that we hold space in the Town of Innisfil, which is situated on Treaty land steeped in rich Indigenous history. The South Simcoe Theatre recognizes that this land is the Traditional Territory of the First Peoples of Turtle Island. It is shared among the Anishinaabe peoples of Beausoleil First Nation, and Chippewas of Rama First Nation and we thank them for their generations of land stewardship. We are privileged to continue to share stories on this land, and we thank those knowledge keepers and storytellers who have gone before. We look forward to learning and sharing more of their history.
