Our 5th season of Theatre in the Park will feature the Syrian folk tale The Woodcutter and the Lion. The artistic team is working with some of Saskatoon’s newest residents to celebrate the culture, music, dance and language of Syria. The story follows a Woodcutter who is forced by drought to travel to an island where a dangerous lion lives. A play about courage and friendship, audiences of all ages will love the music and theatricality of this dazzling show.

Special performances: On July 5, we are planning a nut free performance*. We ask that audience members do not bring any nuts or nut products to this performance. The performances on July 9th and 16th are ASL Interpreted.

We are grateful for the opportunity to perform on Treaty 6 Territory and the traditional Homeland of the Metis.
