Upcoming Performances:

Shakespeare’s Will

Jul 19, 2022 – Jul 31, 2022

Shakespeare’s Will is a one-woman show that depicts Anne Hathaway, Shakespeare’s wife, as she prepares to read her late husband’s last will and testament. Through the play, the audience gets to relive the relationship between Anne and Will from her perspective.


Jul 20, 2022 – Aug 14, 2022

Cymbeline takes familiar story elements from Shakespeare’s earlier plays (star-crossed lovers, mistaken identity, children lost and found!) and weaves them into something unique.

Sunday Teas

Jul 24, 2022 – Aug 14, 2022

The Community Events Area will be transformed into an elegant tea house with a view of the South Saskatchewan River.  Enjoy tea, delicious finger sandwiches, dainties, and musical interludes and more.

Iago Speaks

Aug 3, 2022 – Aug 21, 2022

See the premiere production of Iago Speaks by Daniel Macdonald, one of Saskatchewan’s playwrights. Iago Speaks appears to follow the events immediately after Shakespeare’s Othello. Then we meet Iago’s Jailer, a bit player, as he tries to find purpose in his task of keeping watch over Iago.
