#25for25th

For 50 years 25th Street Theatre has been building the careers of Saskatchewan artists, giving them a chance to step into the spotlight before they go on to work with other companies both here in Saskatchewan and around the world. We are a vital pillar in Saskatoon’s theatre ecosystem and are proud to be known for our safe and supportive work environment.

Our 2024 goal is to raise $25,000 for 25th Street Theatre!
By giving to this campaign, you directly support our 24/25 programming.
Together, we are the future of theatre.

A message From board president – Jennifer Nairn

I want to encourage everyone to consider donating to this important initiative. 25th Street Theatre is widely known for producing the Fringe Festival, but we have also gone back to our roots to become a producing theatre company again. This has meant tackling shows that have a lot of heart and meaning and address important issues in our community. Shows like, Luna, Men Express Their Feelings, and The Art of French Cooking, in last year’s season were enthusiastically embraced by the theatre community and patrons, and we look forward to continuing to produce such innovative and interesting projects.

On top of being Board Chairperson I am also a volunteer, patron, and donor for 25th Street Theatre and a supporter of the arts in Saskatoon.

I can tell you from my experience that every dollar matters.

We appreciate the support of each and every one of our donors, and we hope that you will consider supporting us in our plans for an exciting 2024-25 season”
