Young Company

The 2017 Young Company Production of HERE

Running May 18 to 21, 2017 in the BackStage Stage

From the people who brought you These Things I Know and The Romeo Project comes HERE – A Musical About Finding Your Place. Follow the lives of young people from Saskatoon and all over the world as their stories come to life through music, movement, and especially drama. The Persephone Young Company travels the world before your eyes and takes you on a journey filled with darkness, tragedy and perseverance. Peace, a young woman from Nigeria, shows us what brought her to Canada, her love and fear for her African country; the constant blackouts, threats of violence and ordeals with the education system. Anna, recently arrived from the Ukraine, reveals what it’s like to be at war with Russia, the corruption in her country, and her joys in coming to Canada. Cameron recounts the story of his parents finding each other across an ocean and the lengths it took to bring them together. Kris reveals how her parents escaped death by fleeing Guatemala.

 

With 8 original songs composed and performed by the Persephone Young Company, HERE sings and tells the true stories of people wanting to find a place to belong in the world. Be a part of this amazing musical theatre event and hear the true stories that brought us HERE.
