Anita Smith: Executive Director
Anita is many things to many organizations. She has been the General Manager for Saskatoon Summer Players for the past five years where she has helped produce 16 large-scale musicals, and this summer she is returning to Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan to direct As You Like It after directing the ground-shifting production J. Caesar with her all-female cast of warriors in 2016. You may have seen Anita perform on stage in Waiting for the Parade (Lili Marlene Cooperative), Boeing Boeing, Quick Bright Things, Trout Stanley (Persephone Theatre), Twelfth Night, The Tempest, The Winter’s Tale (Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan), or in Pillars & Echoes (Saskatchewan Legislative Building Centennial Artists in Residence Project). A passionate feminist, Anita is very excited to be working with her friends and colleagues at Ferre Play Theatre to produce and perform in Margret Atwood’s The Penelopiad in the fall of 2019.
Tara Oliver: Volunteer Coordinator
Tara has been the Volunteer Coordinator for Saskatoon Summer Players for almost four years. She fills predominately administrative rolls in the theatre world, but loves when she has a chance to get her hands dirty (mainly full of paint and glitter). Tara is also a freelance artist and has acted as the Makeup Designer for several local productions such as Shrek the Musical (SSP), Cabaret (SSP), The Rocky Horror Show (Ppl R Ppl), and Little Shop of Horrors (Ppl R Ppl).
