Days By The Radio premiered in 1999. (Dancing Sky Theatre)

Anniversary  Roast        Saturday

Dancing Sky Theatre – Meacham

It’s Saskatchewan’s little theatre that could. I’m sure when Angus and Louisa Ferguson founded Dancing Sky Theatre 20 years ago, they could’ve never envisioned it would still be going strong after two decades. The theatre’s long and storied success has included 38 world premieres of prairie productions (how’s that for alliteration?). To celebrate this milestone, Dancing Sky is welcoming audience members, actors, playwrights and former staff to the theatre for a gala. This will be an evening full of music, readings and a roast of local artists as they toast the accomplishment. Tickets are $15 for just the show, $100 for the supper and performance.
