Saskatoon’s Sum Theatre is dedicated to bringing people together through non-traditional live theatre experiences. Last summer, local actor and playwright Joel Bernbaum decided to act on an idea he’d had for a long time. He wanted to bring communities together to watch free plays in their own neighborhoods. With the help of actor and radio host, Heather Morrison, Sum Theatre was created and Saskatoon’s newest summer tradition, Theatre in the Park, was born. Last season over 4,000 audience members participated in the production of Alice in Wonderland. Alice was voted “Best Live Theatre Production” in Planet S Magazine’s Best of Saskatoon, and received the Juror’s Award for Innovation from the Saskatoon and Area Theatre Awards! Most importantly, Theatre in the Park helped to build stronger communities. When teenagers, seniors, and families share in the experience of watching a play outdoors, conversation and community-building are inevitable.
