Every year E-52 Student Theatre hosts a one-act festival called Short Attention Span Theatre, or SAST.  Each show in SAST is student written and is a great opportunity for students to get involved in a production.  Every year SAST has a different (usually punny theme), this year's theme is "SAST Man Standing!"  We're always happy to get people involved in SAST and student theatre, if you're interested please reach out to E-52's President, Jenna Dorrian at or SAST's Producer, Avery Houle at
