Hit reality T.V. show So You Think You Can Act is the year’s biggest televised acting competition, taking viewers into the world of drama and quite frankly; flat out competition! Join host Megha Sandhu as she introduces some of Canada’s most hopeful actors as they compete for an acting contract with one of Canada’s most prestigious acting agencies. Judges Susan Sarandon, Richard Gere, Kiefer Sutherland and a surprise guest judge will have sole control over who’s crowned the So You Think You Can Act champion.
The show features a tiered format where auditions are held all across Canada’s major cities. Hopeful contestants of all ages will be asked to perform a solo skit of their choice, be it a comedy, a drama and from any time period. If allowed to move forward, hopefuls are then put through another round of auditions to test their ability to adapt to different styles of acting. At the end of this process, a small number of actors (20) are chosen as finalists to be featured on the show. These actors move on the competition’s main phase, where each week, they have 5 days to train and rehearse a pre-selected short play. Day 6 is show day, where all actors perform the pre-selected play in front of the judges, a live audience and to the rest of Canada. Actors compete for the votes of the broadcast viewing audience which, combined with the input of the panel of judges, determines which actors advance to the next stage from week to week.
So You Think You Can Act will reach audience members from all across Canada and the USA. Whether you’re a hopeful actor yourself or just love the art, this is the show for you! The long rehearsal hours and behind the scenes footage will surely attract anyone’s attention!
We are honoured to have the TORONTO ACADEMY OF ACTING FOR FILM & TELEVISION and MAC Cosmetics as our official sponsors!

It it for this reason that the TAA and So You Think You Can Act make great partners!
We are equally as glad to be having Mac Cosmetics as the primary providers for our stage makeup. Stage makeup is as much a science as it is an art, requiring precision, practice, and a considerable amount of trial and error. It’s also something any good performer needs to learn, as it’s not only a way to enhance your looks or charisma onstage, but a valuable way to help you build or solidify your characters. It is for this reason that Mac products are trusted 100%!
The hour long So You Think You Can Act runs once weekly on CTV!
Hope you all tune in to watch!
