Up next, we present the silly and superb Spamalot, July 2 – 9, 2017 at the Remai Arts Centre. Lovingly ripped off from the film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, this Tony award-winner is a highly irreverent parody of the Arthurian legend. The spectacle features beautiful show girls, cows, killer rabbits, French people, and the catchy "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life."

Based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott
SSP jack-of-all-trades, Bobby Williston, has been a passionate advocate of this show for a number of years, and we are so pleased to enlist him as the Director of our first show of the season, Little Women.
Presented at the Broadway Theatre from November 8th to 11th, this timeless, captivating story is brought to life in this glorious musical filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope and everlasting love. Based on Louisa May Alcott's life, Little Women follows the adventures of sisters, Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March growing up in Civil War America. Little Women embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears and a lifting of the spirit.
We have such great volunteers at SSP, and when they come up with good ideas, we like to run with them! Thanks to a suggestion from a recent Volunteer Feedback survey, we will be producing Broadway Goes to the Movies on February 10th and 11th at The Bassment. With this fun theme, we will keep the cabaret-style that our audiences have come to enjoy in our co-presentations with the Saskatoon Jazz Society, but this time the show will feature songs from Broadway musicals that have gone on to be made into movies.

It's hard to believe, but 2018 marks the 30th anniversary of the last time that SSP presented this beloved musical. We are very excited to bring Annie to The Remai Arts Centre from June 29th - July 8th, 2018.
Based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, Annie has become a worldwide phenomenon and was the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage that is run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC.
Annie is the perfect family-friendly musical that reminds us all, "the sun will come out tomorrow."
