This Summer on the Festival Mainstage:
Here is our line up for the 2016 Season, July 6 to August 21:
J. Caesar, adapted by Tracey Power with James MacDonald and directed by Anita Smith
In the year 2416 environmental disaster and societal collapse have turned the world as we know it into chaos. With no countries or borders, what is left of planet Earth now resembles a place long since forgotten….Rome. But who will rule this beleaguered place? Women, the strong women, have survived and risen to power in this harsh apocalyptic world. …beware the Ides of March…
Featuring the women in our 2016 company: Jenna Berenbaum, Jacqueline Block (playing Julia Caesar), Angela Christie, Jonelle Gunderson, Heather Morrison (playing Antonia), Elizabeth Nepjuk and Andrea Runge (playing Brutus)
A Midsummer Night’s Dream directed by Artistic Producer Will Brooks:
Is this a dream? In colourful show full of pomp and revelry the lovers, the fairies and the craftsmen take the audience on a hilarious journey of love and magic. Expect the unexpected in this playful production full of sharp wit and beautiful costumes. It’s the best group wedding of the summer, no gifts and no crazy relatives required – unless you really want to bring them along!
Featuring our entire 2016 company of actors!
The Roving Show directed by the wonderful Josh Beaudry who will also play Bottom in Midsummer Night's Dream!
Venture out of the tent and join us on the riverbank just outside the festival site for the zany world of The Roving Show. Here we take four actors and add some props, puppets, costumes plus maybe a little help from the audience, and VOILÀ! Come experience one of Shakespeare’s most magical and mystical plays like you never have before. Prospero will command you, oh spirits of the South Saskatchewan!
Featuring the men in our 2016 company: Aaron Hursh, Dalton Lightfoot, Greg Ochitwa and Rob van Meenen
