Discover. Develop. Play. Perform.
Theatre isn’t all about being the centre of attention. It builds confidence and self-esteem, challenges an individual’s comfort level and breaks down social barriers.The STC Academy introduces participants of all ages and experience levels to the magic of theatre in a supportive, social, and non-threatening environment. Our classes are led by skilled and highly-trained instructors with extensive teaching backgrounds. Students are exposed to a wide range of games, exercises, and experiences that are tailored to any skill level. All classes end with a presentation for family and friends.

THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS
book and lyrics by Barbara Worthy
music by John-Luke Addison
based on the original story by Kenneth Grahame
directed by K.C. Rautiainen and Kirsten Zinkie
Amiable Mole, his hearty friend Water Rat, genial Badger, and irresponsible Mr. Toad enjoy the most memorable and hilarious adventures. This story will enchant young and old alike!
K.C. RAUTIAINEN | co-director
K.C. was delighted to join the Sudbury Theatre Centre family last season as co-director for STC’s original musical adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. She has served as vocal director for over 50 musicals for theatre groups such as Theatre Cambrian and YES Theatre. She has also performed in shows ranging from Cabaret and Grease to Shakespeare and slap-stick comedies. Her directing credits include musicals such as Evita and Jesus Christ Superstar.
KIRSTEN ZINKIE | co-director
Kirsten greatly enjoyed co-directing Alice in Wonderland with K.C. last year and is looking forward to working with next year’s SOS cast. Her career in theatre began right here at STC in their grand opening musical, Oliver!, directed by the late Tony Lloyd. She went on to perform in many productions with STC, Theatre Cambrian, Black Dog Productions and Murder By Appointment. She also entertained on cruise ships which took her to the Mediterranean and Caribbean.
