Founded in 1943, Sock ‘n’ Buskin is Carleton University’s oldest running club. We’ve been the stepping stone for many into the theatre industry, and aren’t planning on stopping any time soon.
Our goal is to create a fun, inclusive and supportive community at Carleton University for those that love theatre in any way, shape or form.
Every year, we put on a number of performances on and off campus that vary greatly in style and content. Traditionally, SnB put on Shakespeare and one modern play, but has recently begun branching out. Recent shows include Eurydice, All in the Timing, Bad Auditions…On Camera, Concord Floral and Advance Man.
A lot of work goes into producing even one show, and that’s why Sock ‘n’ Buskin is supported by an executive board and has two Artistic Directors to oversee that everything gets done. The board is made up entirely of students who are elected at the end of each school year by the current board and the Artistic Directors.
Students also have the opportunity to join our community in a number of other capacities. From stage hands to on-stage roles, from directors to ushers, Sock ‘n’ Buskin has an opportunity for anyone who wants to contribute to the community and shares our love of theatre and friendship.
If you’re interested in working with Sock ‘n’ Buskin in any capacity, send us an email or reach out through social media. We’re here to give you the opportunity to display your talents, and we’re so excited to hear from you!
