“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 Dream. “The 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 Brousseau, Jensine Trondson, Amberlin 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.
