Our city is blessed to have such a beautiful setting for theatre in a tent. We enjoyed a perfect summer evening in August for the last performance of Merry Wives of Windsor. The site is very pretty, with lots of flower planters. There is pre-show...More
We’ve been to many performances over the years and have never been disappointed. This year it was The Merry Wives of Windsor. Typical of Shakespearean comedy, the first half was chaotic, but second half was hilarious. SotS has added cushions for the seats which do...More
An exceptional experience with great actors. Seating leaves a lot to be desired (uncomfortable even with cushions, and some chairs much too close together for the length of a play). Absolutely the way to make an enjoyable weekend taking in more than one performance!
I hadn’t been to SotS for decades and returned to see Hamlet with my 18 year old son. It was a lovely experience from entering the grounds! A slam poet performing, flowers and a comfortable, welcoming environment. Take advantage of grabbing a cushion to sit...More
An afternoon of spectacular delight. Filled with drama, intrigue, and a little humor.
Oh what a lovely acted performance. I enjoyed every minute.
You would be sad to be the one person to have missed this.
My extreme thanks to all the actors whom gave...More
Great music and seasoned professionals made this a fun, laugh out loud evening. I have seen many of the actors in this production many times over the years and they just seem to get better and better. There is an easy camaraderie between them as...More
Whether you live in Saskatoon, or you're only here for a visit, plan to include taking in a performance executed* (*Richard III) brilliantly by this theatrical company. Don't let the Elizabethan language frighten you; I guarantee you will get the plot line(s) once you're into...More
We went to the preview night for the opening of Richard III. Wonderful experience just like we always have from Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan. Highly entertaining. It's like watching Trump's playbook! We like the new layout for the tavern and the tent and have given...More

Seating was changed last year, so it goes around the entire stage now. I think any seat is good - haven't had a chance to experience much seating since the re-arrangement. Front row -you may get you in on the action - feel... More
Seating was changed last year, so it goes around the entire stage now. I think any seat is good - haven't had a chance to experience much seating since the re-arrangement. Front row -you may get you in on the action - feel closer to the actors. It's personal preference - I like to sit up a bit and near an entry way for the actors (to get a bit of a breeze if the weather is hot). Enjoy the show!
