Savouring Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan

Students in the Department of Drama are thriving amid the energy and excitement of Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan as members of the 2016 festival’s production team.

“It’s been great,” says Connor Brousseau, a fourth-year acting student who was hired to write music for this summer’s productions of J. Caesar and A Midsummer Night’s DreamThe cast, the administrative people, the stage managers, the directors—everybody has been fantastic to work with.”

The annual theatre event is a regular outlet for established artists such as Heather Morrison (BFA’08) and Angela Christie (BFA’00), but also provides up-and-coming students with priceless experience working on a professional production.

Department of Drama students including BrousseauJensine TrondsonAmberlin Hsuand Logan Martin-Arcand are involved in this year’s festival. They work alongsideveterans of Saskatchewan’s theatre community including about a dozen faculty, instructors and alumni of the College of Arts and Science.
