Regina Open Door Society
Did you know that of the 12,000 newcomers that resettled in Saskatchewan this year, 60% are children and youth?
In partnership with the Regina Open Door Society, the Globe Theatre School is proud to program and facilitate a two-week summer theatre camp for local youth and immigrant and refugee youth ages 9-18. This fun-filled camp helps newcomers develop and maximize their talents and skills in performing arts while connecting and building relationships with local kids their own age.
“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
In 2017, students worked together with professional artists to produce the video "Home." Check it out down below:
