This summer, Saskatoon-based Embrace Theatre will tour an original play celebrating the richness of Saskatchewan’s outdoors, presenting it … outdoors in Saskatchewan. 

With the support of Saskatchewan Parks and the Saskatchewan Arts Board, this outdoor play for families will travel the province, entertaining thousands of people in Saskatchewan communities and Saskatchewan Provincial Parks. Each performance will be free of charge, and will be followed by a theatre workshop for young people.
This event for all ages is coming to Swift Current’s Riverside Park for a 2 p.m. performance Aug. 10.
The story follows two young siblings who are taken from their accustomed urban world of video games and TV for a family camping trip. Despite their initial reluctance, the wildlife, the freedom, and the glow of the campfire give them a new understanding of themselves, their family, and their world. With actors taking on multiple roles, manipulating puppets, playing instruments, singing, and telling stories, audiences of all ages will be taken on a spectacle-filled journey into Saskatchewan’s outdoors.
Audiences are asked to bring their own seating to the shows. For more information, photos, and video visit
