Saskatoon and Area Theatre Award Nomination

Embrace Theatre received exciting news on Sunday: the ensemble of Bottome’s Dreame was nominated for a Saskatoon and Area Theatre Award for Achievement in Sound Design. Apparently the original soundscapes created live by our ensemble impressed the jurors!

Embrace Theatre’s founding director, Charlie Peters, was also nominated for a SATAward for Outstanding Emerging Artist.
