Queen Seraphina and the Land of Vertebraat is an epic tale about a time and a place where everyone was disabled. A land of golden ramps and quiet spaces that was ruled by kindness alone, until a mysterious stranger arrives... This original story was written by Adam Pottle and adapted by the Sum Theatre ensemble. Presented by the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission and Concentus Citizenship Education, join us for the free, family friendly show in Saskatoon public parks July 2 - 31st.  

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

Special performances:


The remaining performances will all be ASL interpreted. We'd like to extend a thank you to TD Bank Group, our accessibility sponsor, for making this possible.


On July 26th at 7pm and July 29th at 2pm the performance will be audio described by a trained describer for individuals who are visually impaired or are otherwise in need of description. We will also provide a Touch Tour at 6pm. Please contact us at sumtheatre[at]gmail.com or call (306) 880-4786 if you would like to take part in this experience.


Performances will be captioned July 23, 34, 25, 27 and 29 at 2pm. The monitor will be set up near the ASL interpreter. 


On July 19, we are planning a nut free performance. We ask that members of the public do not bring nut products to these performances. To the parents of children with nut allergies: we are attempting to create a safer space for your children. Our event takes place in a public space so we cannot fully control what food products will be present. We will do our best, but please still be vigilant.


There is a porta-potty arranged for each park, but unfortunately they are not wheelchair accessible. We apologize for this inconvenience. 


Some of the parks we perform in are more accessible than others. Small parks that require very little walking/wheeling on grass include: Optimist Park (requires use of paved pathway), Wilson Park (access from Duke St), Holland Park, GD Archibald Park West (access from Richmond Place North), Ashworth Holmes Park (access from Ave F between 30th and 31st), Pleasant Hill Park, Exhibition Park (access South West corner) AH Browne Park (access from Ave D) and Buena Vista Park (access from the corner of Melrose and 7th St E).
