Events Description


Theatre in the Park is an original play offered free of charge in neighbourhood parks around Saskatchewan each July. Created in response to a current issue, it’s a fun and thought-provoking performance for people of all ages. Catchy original music and colourful sets, props and costumes bring our stories to life.

This year’s offering is a family friendly rock opera about two sides of the same river. Based on a story by Yvette Nolan, The Other Side of the River was devised by the Sum Theatre ensemble with original music composition by Amanda Trapp. Created in response to Indigenous Lives Matter, Black Lives Matter and the international movement towards racial equity and anti-racism, The Other Side of the River transports the audience on a joyful journey to a place they never expected to be.
