Third ANNUAL 48-hour Queermunity Theatre Race! 

Persephone Theatre is excited to announce the third ANNUAL 48-hour Queermunity Theatre Race! 

It’s your time to shine! Everyone in the Saskatoon Queer community (2SLGBTQIA+ and their allies) are invited to celebrate Pride Month at Persephone! Get your friends or coworkers together and submit a team application by April 26, 2024. Each team will receive an inspiration package, then the lights will go up on five original Queer-inspired plays on Persephone’s Backstage Stage on Saturday, June 8 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday June 9 at 2 p.m. in front of a live audience!

How it Works: 

  • Submit your team application before or on April 26, 2024. Application below.
  • The Queermunity Selection Committee will choose up to five teams to participate. Teams will be announced  May 9, 2024.
  • June 6-9, 2024– selected teams will create, rehearse, and perform a 10-15 minute original play in celebration of Pride Month.
  • Teams will receive a $250 honorarium to spend as they choose. For example: to pay each team member for their time; buy costumes, props, or food; donate to a Queer friendly organization.

Teams must be in attendance for the following: 

  • June 6 at 4 p.m. – Kick-off Party!
    Meet the teams and receive inspiration packages that will include a prop, a line of text, and a sound cue that they must incorporate into their play. Then the countdown begins! The teams will have 48 hours to create and rehearse their play.
  • June 7 at 3 p.m. – Teams submit a rough draft of their script
  • June 8 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.– each team will receive 45 minutes of technical rehearsal
  • June 8 at 7:30 p.m. & June 9 at 2 p.m. – Show time!


  • All team members must fully support and celebrate the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. 
  • Team members do not have to be professional performers or theatre makers in order to participate, but performers are welcome to apply.
  • Team members can be 14+ years old. Any team member 18 and under would need guardian permission to take part.
