On Sunday, July 25, residents of Martensville are in for a treat as Sum Theatre will be coming to the community to perform their Theatre in the Park production of ‘The Other Side of the River’.
Theatre in the Park consists of an original play that is offered free of charge in neighborhood parks across the province each July. This year, ‘The Other Side of the River’, was created in response to Indigenous Lives Matter, Black Lives Matter and the international movement towards racial equality and anti-racism. It is a family-friendly rock opera about two sides of the same river and is based on a story by Yvette Nolan, with all graphics designed by Taegan O’Bertos.
Those attending will be in store for some fun and thought-provoking performances for people of all ages, catchy original music, colorful sets, props and costumes. ‘The Other Side of the River’ was devised by the Sum Theatre ensemble, with original music composition by Amanda Trapp.
There will be three productions taking place this Sunday in Lions Park at 2:00pm, 5:30pm and 7:30pm. The shows are free to attend; however, you must reserve tickets online at https://sumtheatre.com/shows/the-other-side-of-the-river.
