A brand new local theatre festival is coming to Barrie in 2022.

The Simcoe County Theatre Festival is a festival that will provide opportunities for local artists to write, direct and perform their own original plays. Plus, with workshops and networking opportunities provided throughout the week, The Festival will be the place to be for emerging talent in the Simcoe County region.

The Festival will launch in June 2022 and be centred at The Five Points Theatre in Downtown Barrie. More information on programming and submissions will be available in the coming weeks. 


The submission period is now closed.


Information on play submissions, creative team applications, and acting auditions are not available at this time. Please stay tuned to this website and our social media channels for further details coming in January 2022.
