Our Spring 2018 tour of The Wild Dog Waits on the Concrete Path has begun!
If you’re in or near Warman, North Battleford, Rosetown, or Biggar, come check us out!
Embrace Theatre is thrilled to announce that it has been nominated once again for the Saskatoon and Area Theatre Awards.
Emma Thorpe was also nominated for Outstanding Emerging Artist for her work as a Fight Director. Emma staged the fights for Macbeth, as well as last season’s The Clockmaker. She also performed in Embrace Theatre’s Saskatchewan Outdoors and Bottomes Dreame.
Congratulations to all the artists and companies nominated. See you at the Gala on September 26th!
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!

Cam Fuller of the Saskatoon StarPheonix joined us for opening night! He had this to say:
“intriguing and engaging”
“it’s delightful because… the acting [is] so good”
“Hartshorn is nothing less than a revelation as Frieda… she was completely in the moment and delivered a magnetic, flawless performance.”
“Jenna Maren’s interesting set… [delivers] a bit of magic”

Name: Charlie Peters
Role: Actor – Heinrich Mann
What Excites Charlie About The Clockmaker:
It’s a script that keeps you guessing. It is, at turns, romantic, funny, scary, and fascinating. It’s well-written. But it’s also performed by an amazing cast, supported by a creative team of hugely talented folks. That’s a great combination!
Charlie has a BFA in Acting from the University of Saskatchewan but works in theatre not only as an actor but also as a stage director, playwright, dramaturge, lighting designer, and educator. In 2013 he won the SATAward for Outstanding Emerging Artist and was nominated in 2014 in the Outstanding Direction category for Stop Kiss (Embrace Theatre/Live Five). He has recently worked at Live Five, Persephone Theatre, Saskatoon Opera, the Saskatoon Fringe, and with the Saskatchewan Playwrights Centre. He is the founding director of Embrace Theatre.
Upcoming: Lighting Designer, Two Corpses Go Dancing (Two Unruly Gentlemen/Live Five); Director, Hansel and Gretel (Saskatoon Opera in Schools).
Name: Grahame Kent
What Excites Grahame About The Clockmaker:
It is never as simple as it seems! I love a script that draws you in with its charm and apparent simplicity and then goes further and gets more complicated with each step. It is the sign of a smart and skilled playwright and this is a great example.
Grahame is delighted to be back on the Live Five stage, especially alongside such a wonderful and talented team. He also wants to thank you for coming to see the show! For Live Five: The Edible Woman (Thigh High Theatre/Live Five) and stage manager for Love/Stories (Ball and Chain Theatre/Live Five). Other: Burt White in Dr. Frightful Presents: Dead Air (Canadian Fringe Circuit), Butch in Leading Ladies (Persephone Theatre) and Judas Iscariot in The Black Bonspiel of Wullie McCrimmon (Persephone Theatre). Grahame also sits on the board of directors for both Live Five Independent Theatre and 25th Street Theatre.
Role: Actor – Madame Pierre
What Jamie Says When People Ask Why They Should See The Clockmaker:
It’s a lovely story, with a bit of mystery to keep you guessing. Plus, there’s cuckoo clocks!
Previous shows with Live Five include The Science of Disconnection (RiverCity Theatre Co-op), It’s All True, Scorched Ice, and The Coronation Voyage (Last Exit Theatre). Other select theatre credits include: The Importance of Being Earnest (Persephone Theatre/WCT); Velocity (Persephone Theatre); Hamlet (Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan); Gordon Winter (Persephone Theatre/National Arts Centre); The Alchemist (Dancing Sky Theatre); Perfect Pie (Nakai Theatre); Merlin (Western Canada Theatre); Silence (Northern Light Theatre); and Lig & Bittle (Concrete Theatre/YPT). Jamie Lee received a SATAward for Outstanding Achievement in Performance for her 2009/2010 Body of Work. She is a proud graduate of Ryerson Theatre School in Toronto and Canada’s National Voice Intensive.
