Since 1964, SSP productions have been produced, directed, and performed by volunteers, giving local talent the opportunity to participate in full-scale musicals. Averaging three productions/public events annually, we take pride in providing Saskatoon with a musical theatre experience that continues to delight our patrons. We specialize in producing large-scale Broadway musicals.
