OUR STORY

THE SINGLETON THEATRICAL SOCIETY WAS FORMED CIRCA 1980 WHEN THE SINGLETON MUSICAL SOCIETY AND DRAMA SOCIETY COMBINED. IN THE MID 90’S IT WAS DECIDED TO DROP THE WORD “AMATEUR”, THOUGH RETAIN THE ACRONYM SATS, STS BEING TOO HARD TO PRONOUNCE!

SOME 40 YEARS LATER AND WITH A WIDE RANGE OF MUSICALS AND STRAIGHT PLAYS STAGED SATS HAS DEVELOPED A REPUTATION FOR PRODUCING HIGH QUALITY SHOWS, EASILY DONE WITH THE TALENT BASE WITHIN SINGLETON. WITH UNRELENTING SUPPORT FROM SINGLETONS TALENTED MUSICIANS, WITHOUT WHOM NONE OF THESE MUSICALS WOULD BE POSSIBLE

THROUGH THE YEARS WE HAVE DIVERSIFIED AND CATERED FOR THE BURGEONING YOUTH TALENT POOL AND PRODUCED SOME QUALITY CHILDREN’S SHOWS, THOUGH SATS IS GENERALLY REGARDED AS AN OUTLET FOR THE FRUSTRATED ADULT THESPIANS OF THE AREA. SATS WILL CONTINUE TO PROVIDE SUPPORT TO THE SINGLETON COMMUNITY FOR (HOPEFULLY) MANY YEARS TO COME, WHILST THE CAST AND CREW MAY HAVE CHANGED OVER THE YEARS, THE DEDICATION AND TALENT OF THIS TOWN REMAINS.



We usually put on one major production per year plus miscellaneous smaller shows like carols in the park or promos for our productions.

Meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at
1 Sophia Street at 7:00pm
