Regina Open Door Society
Globe Theatre School continues to connect with the community. In 2013, Globe Theatre School formed a partnership with Regina Open Door Society (RODS) to offer a summer theatre camp for newcomer youth. Globe Theatre saw a need to provide immigrant and refugee youth with an interactive program that would strengthen their confidence, language skills and social integration. For the past three years, Globe Theatre has spent two weeks with RODS clients – celebrating their cultural backgrounds and sharing their personal stories through dance, art, and theatre. Since the program’s inception, more than 200 immigrant and refugee youth have participated.
“I arrived in Canada 3 months ago. All of these things are new for me. It made me scared at first but I think I did a good job. I learnt English in these two weeks. Can you believe it? The story I wrote is the first thing I wrote in English. Thank you for your hard work, thank you for your patience, thank you for your time.” - Xiachi Liu, participant in the RODS Summer Theatre Camp
