Overhear Saskatoon, an outdoor interactive theatre experience 

Dearest SATP members,
We are pleased to personally invite you to It's Not a Box Theatre's third production of Overhear Saskatoon, an outdoor interactive theatre experience and our most ambitious project to date. Since last year, we have gone international, with separate productions scheduled for Vancouver, Toronto, and Paris shortly after our run. This year we have curated stories about home from each city's respective indigenous and newcomer communities, casting storytellers from said communities as well – artist and non-artist alike. We have also developed a smartphone app which will be used to experience the show and in 2018 will offer an augmented-reality landscape for anyone in the world to share their own stories.

This is a radical on-going experiment in theatre, storytelling, and digital media – and it is growing. We believe great art and stories exist everywhere, which is why we are inviting professionals and community-builders like you to support us. We would love to invite you as an audience member and hear your feedback.

The show runs Oct 25-29th & Nov 1-5th @ 6:00 + 8:00, except Sunday matinees @ 2:00 & 4:00.

Tickets are EXTREMELY LIMITED as performances are designed for one audience member at a time (we can only fit 6 per day!), so please book now!

If you can't make it, please support our crowdfunding campaign or share it with friends and family so we can pay our artists, designers, and developers for all their hard work, present and future. Remember this is more than just a performance – it's a platform.

Thank you,

SATP New Programs for Theatre Professionals & Theatre Organizations

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE September 20, 2017


With Saskatchewan Association of Theatre Professionals

Saskatoon, SK, September 20, 2017– Today Saskatchewan Association of Theatre Professionals, Executive Director, Colleen Ostoforoff announced new programs for theatre professionals and live performing arts community.

“I am excited to announce three new different programs with Saskatchewan Association Theatre Professionals. Saskatchewan’s theatre community has been incredibly supportive as SATP develops new creative programming that will benefit not only our emerging but seasoned theatre professionals. SATP’s membership shared what their needs are and we listened. SATP supports the development and growth of our artists working in theatre in our province.”

Our first program is The Propeller Series.  “In order to move forward in our careers, we need to propel, move forward like an airplane with help from outside sources,” Colleen explained. “The Propeller Series is just that! Think differently and explore through a series of events designed to provide valuable insight on important topics for not for profit organizations and professional artists in theatre and live performing arts sectors.”

Featured in The Propeller Series are five different events. Healthy Artist Talks Series is a unique series of approaches to developing the human potential is important for not only our professional development in our careers, but for long term appreciation and understanding how being a healthy artist affects our everyday life. Each year the Healthy Artist Talks series will take on different mini-workshop sessions to continue to develop our professional artists and administrators. This year, the Healthy Artist Talks Series will feature two mini-talks being Dangerous Decibels in Arts Spaces & Healthy Lifestyle Movement Class for Artists & Administrators.

Dangerous Decibels in Arts Spaces - Of the roughly 40 million Americans suffering from hearing loss, 10 million can be attributed to noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). NIHL can be caused by a one-time exposure to loud sound as well as by repeated exposure to sounds at various loudness levels over an extended period of time. NIHL is probably the most common occupational hazard facing people today.

Being an artist is demanding and can play a toll on our health. Performers and administrators in theatre and live performing arts are concerned about their hearing. When it comes to hearing it is important to know and learn how your hearing changes as you age and why it is important to be tested, when should you be tested and what is involved. Learn how to significantly reduce your exposure to hearing loss and tinnitus in the workplace and about prevention of noise-induced hearing loss. Learn more about your hearing with a qualified registered audiologist from a dedicated team of hearing instrument practitioners.

Healthy Lifestyle Movement Class for Artists & Administrators - SATP believes movement is important as it equals longevity and our expansive space promotes movement. Effective movement brings awareness and efficiency into our ordinary movements of sitting, standing and walking. As we facilitate a shift in posture that allows the body to find an effortless upright structure we learn applications that brings exercises for self-care and professional development.

Collaborating with Sum Theatre Saskatoon, SATP offers a hands-on workshop talk to improve your strength, cardiovascular capacity, mobility, and agility in an environment that will keep you coming back for more. Learn how to effortlessly move on stage, in the office and in your home.

Money Management - Fraud Controls for Professional Not For Profit Organizations - Engaging professional arts organizations by remembering you might be at risk of fraud. Learn from the professional and discuss the key internal controls that you should have in place. Explore the fraud triangle and indications that it may be happening in your organization. Guest speaker Brian Heinrichs, CPA, CA Partner, Assurance & Advisory from Virtus Group will provide the expertise needed to keep your organization in check.

Agents of Change Networking Sessions featuring two networking events in Regina & Saskatoon. Seasoned professionals and theatre professionals with not as much experience can join together to talk, network and ask each other questions. A change agent is anyone who helps an organization transform by improving business processes and interpersonal interactions and this networking opportunity is exactly that opportunity for all performing arts organizations and professional theatre artists that would like to engage with the community.

Networking provides a spinning chance for emerging and seasoned professionals to talk, ask questions and propel their careers to the next level. Do you have a burning question to ask one of SATP’s seasoned professionals? Join us in Regina or Saskatoon at one of our Agents of Change Networking Sessions.

Spark Theatre aims to produce new and existing work that entertains, provokes thought and ignites dialogue.

Last year over 600 people enjoyed Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None with us. Over 1,100 people attended Tomson Highway's Rez Sisters (plus our educational matinee sold out to another 600 students), and Even Ensler's The Vagina Monologues was held over for two additional performances due to popular demand, entertaining over 400 people in the Mann Art Gallery!

Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the post-apocalyptic throne for himself. Wracked with guilt and paranoia, Macbeth is forced to continue his murderous rampage to protect himself from enmity and suspicion. The bloodbath and consequent civil war swiftly take Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into the realms of madness and death. This production has been set in a theoretical, post-apocalyptic future. In addition to a cast of over twenty local performers, we have also hired two professional actors and fight directors to add grit and gut to the battle scenes, which are sure to impress.
