Don't tell Sum Theatre it can't be done!
I'm so excited to bring you news of the company's 9th season of Theatre in the Park. This year we're breaking all the rules with a ROCK OPERA kicking off in Saskatoon July 2 and then in August, touring to other cities in Saskatchewan.
The performance this year is a ground-breaking performance featuring new music by Amanda Trapp and an original story by Algonquin playwright Yvette Nolan, has been adapted by Sum Theatre's ensemble.
The Other Side of the River tells the story of two communities divided until circumstances force them together and they discover they're not so different after all. The show was inspired by the BIPOC and Indigenous Lives Matter protests that began last year. It features the larger than life puppetry and family fun that have made this event a tradition for our community.
Horizon Youth Cycling Program
The Horizon Youth Cycling Program is an eight-week program run Thursday Nights from July 8 to August 26, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. starting at the Saskatoon German Club parking lot @ 160 Cartwright Ave, Grasswood. Our program Horizon100’s Youth Cycling Program (HYC) has four main goals: technical mastery (bike-handling skills), cycling safety, learning to express speed through increased effort, and building distance and endurance. We help the kids develop their coordination, strength, stamina and concentration. We emphasize the enjoyment of cycling for the participants, as we appreciate this is the main contributing factor for sport participation of this age group. Our training sessions are lead by National Coaching Certification Program qualified coaches. The program costs $100 per kid.
We are particularly interested in supporting kids from low income families participating in the program. To support these we can waive their fees, supply them bikes and helmets and arrange transportation for them to the program.
