"Tracey inspires her students to delve deeply, to trust their impulses and to share. This is not the easiest thing with some students who may have spent most of their lives living behind a mask."

About Us

Developed by Tracey Erin Smith at Toronto’s Ryerson University’s ACT II Studio, SoulOTheatre is an innovative, interactive program designed to help people create, write, direct and star – in their own One-Person Show by transforming raw material from their lives into creative personal story telling performances. Smith’s process turns personal experience into compelling and entertaining theatre, with no prior acting experience necessary.

Participants take part in writing and theatre exercises to explore their lives, gaining insight into their trials and triumphs, as well as the wisdom they have earned; and share a ten-minute performance with an audience of friends and family at the end of the course.
