The earth is in a terrible way. The sun is too hot. The land is too dry. But the Young Ones are looking for hope. . .

Join us in a park near you for The Young Ones, written by Yvette Nolan and adapted by the Sum Theatre Ensemble.

Theatre in the Park is a summer tradition for many people in Saskatchewan. It is suitable for all ages and FREE of charge. Everyone is welcome.

Come an hour early to do a free craft with the Nutrien Wonderhub!

Special performances:


What's up, Regina? We're doing our first ever out of town shows on July 27th and July 28th at The Landing at Grasslands. Come check us out!


ASL interpretation will be made possible at most performances thanks to Canada Council for the Arts. Please check back for details. 


Two performances 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 sumtheatreinthepark[at] or call (306) 280-3527 if you would like to take part in this experience. Please check back here for dates and more details. 


On July 12, we are planning a nut free performance in Mount Royal Park. 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 portable toilet 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), 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).
