Feature Story: Theatre in the Park

This summer over 7,200 people of all ages and backgrounds participated in Theatre in the Park. Queen Seraphina and the Land of Vertebraatis the story of an accessible and inclusive kingdom taken over by a wizard and saved by Queen Seraphina, a wise and brave wheelchair user. This live, professional, original theatre performance was free for everyone and was performed in 26 different communities across Saskatoon. Sum Theatre also travelled to Camp Easter Seal for a special performance, where Saskatchewan youth living with disabilities were able to see themselves celebrated onstage. Their ensemble featured three artists living with disabilities, including an emerging artist with Erb’sPalsy, a Deaf actor, and a wheelchair user. All 32 shows in local parks were made accessible either through Captioning, Audio Description or ASL. The performance helped build community by fostering a greater understanding of the importance of accessibility.
