Summer Stage Programs

Please note due to COVID 19 uncertainty and our commitment to the health and safety of our community, programs are subject to change or cancellation.

June 8th Programming Update:

As part of the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan SaskExpress Saskatoon has been working to revamp our summer programming to ensure that we can offer safe, quality, entertaining initiatives.

We have created an extensive planning document. Click here for the link.

Highlights include:

• Reduced program options with smaller classes to ensure that we can supervise and maintain physical distancing protocols.

• Video/ virtual productions replace ALL live performance components.

• Vocal training will be offered through an online supplement to each program or one on one in a sanitized area with mask protocols in place.

• Group singing will not occur in a class setting until it is once again safe to do so.

We are supplementing our programs with some fun online options for families who want to engage in art education from the comfort of their homes.

We are pleased to announce the following Summer Stage Options:

SUMMER PERFORMANCE INTENSIVE – July 6th – 18th 

Legally Blonde Jr – LIMITED Enrollment ($475.00) - Ages 11 and up 

Based on the award-winning Broadway musical and the smash hit motion picture, Legally BlondeThe Musical JR. is a fabulously fun journey of self-empowerment and expanding horizons. The show's instantly recognizable songs are filled with humor, wit, and sass — leaving cast members and audiences alike seeing pink!

Staging – Our staging will be multi-level and creative to allow for physically safe distancing. Students will still work on character and connection but the overall look of the show will reflect the times we are living in. Dancing – Our ensemble numbers will not exceed 12 students performing at one time with no physical contact and ensuring that safe spacing is adhered to at all times. Singing - Because of concerns regarding COVID transmission, our singing for this show will be taught online and will be recorded by the students and mixed by our audition technician Karen Gwillim. We will record the show using the tracks with the student's vocals. DVD – Because it is not safe to host live performances we will record this show as video production, breaking scenes down to ensure that student safety is paramount. I have hired a professional videographer to film and edit our final production and each student will receive a DVD.
