An epic journey into Persephone’s past has officially begun!
Join us as we open our Memory Bank filled with 45 years of Persephone memories.
We’re heading into the basement, uncovering dusty bins of photos, programs and posters dating back as far as 1974! As we begin to digitally archive all this precious material, we’re going to share some of our treasured memories with you!
We hope you will participate and share some of your own memories of Persephone. Maybe it’s a memory of a special performance or a personal story about attending Persephone with friends in seasons past. You may even have some long lost memorabilia like photos or programs from Persephone’s early days. We invite you to send us your memories, stories or scanned materials to: email@example.com and we’ll share them on this blog!
This week we’re starting with 1974, the year Janet and Susan Wright, along with director Brian Richmond, founded Persephone Theatre in Saskatoon. Here’s the very first flyer promoting the first season of three plays performed at the Mendel Art Gallery.
