The Wild Dog runs again!

The initial stage of preparation for our remount of The Wild Dog Waits on the Concrete Path began last week with 3 days of work on the script by Nathan Howe. We’re excited to be working with Theatre Howl to once again bring this great Saskatchewan story to life.

We are also pleased to welcome Danielle Roy to the team . She will be taking on the role of Daisy (formerly Dave) – as well as every other role in the play!

You’ve Got Time for This Shakespeare

This afternoon Macbeth opened to a house of students (and some members of the public) generously sponsored by G&S Landscape and Excavation Service.

The Starpheonix also published a great article and video about the production. Read the story and watch the video here!

We want to show you!                                                   

Neverending Highway and Embrace Theatre are seeking a member of our audience to come behind the scenes and learn about our theatre-making process, and then document it in a series of videos to be posted online. We are giving one audience member unparalleled access to our entire rehearsal process for our upcoming production of The Clockmaker at Live Five.

We enter rehearsals in December, and then a few hours every week or so will be required (we are taking time off for Christmas, of course!). In January we reach the height of our rehearsal process with tech week January 11-14th, preview January 15th, and opening night January 16th.
