Open Stage: Call for Submissions

Welcome to The Persephone Theatre’s virtual Open Stage!

Persephone Theatre’s Open Stage is a virtual performance platform where Saskatoon’s performing artists will shine! During these bizarre times Persephone wants to open up a performance space where artists are free to express themselves, their way on their terms – for an audience of thousands!

We want to see YOUR: one – act plays, excerpts of new work, dance pieces, drag performances, cabaret numbers, spoken word and much, much more.

The third Thursday of every month there will be a free online stream, by Bamboo Shoots, showcasing your work with full credit and creative control!

How this works:

  • Submit your ideas or scripts to us along with an estimated length and if selected we will help you make it happen!
  • Logistics will be adapted to each proposal’s unique needs
  • Slots will be allocated on a first come first served basis until an hour of content is reached 


  • You must live in Saskatoon… we want to feature our local community on our national platform!

Successful Submissions Will Receive:

  • Support in producing your piece: space, equipment, dramaturgy, direction etc…
  • Each selected group will receive an artist fee of $200.

To Apply: 

    • 150 word summary of your piece (identifying areas where support from Persephone will be required)
    • Resume or description of your experience with your art form
