Circle of Voices

Applications are OPEN for Circle of Voices 2024/2025!

Since 1999, Gordon Tootoosis Nīkānīwin Theatre has been developing Indigenous youth into the next generation of storytellers by teaching them artistic and theatrical skills. The Circle of Voices program also incorporates traditional Indigenous cultural practices to ensure youth participants are carrying on the traditions of Indigenous people for future generations.

Some of our students have gone on to become musicians, actors, stage managers, playwrights, and artistic directors across Saskatchewan and Canada!

  • Develop Skills. Learn the principles of acting, directing, stage management, and theatre design from local professionals.
  • Live Performance. Showcase your new skills in an Open House showcase and by acting in a semi-professional production for a live audience.
  • Experience Indigenous Culture. Receive mentorship and teaching on Indigenous history and cultural practices from community elders.
  • Celebrate Your Success. Celebrate your success in the program with a round dance and graduation feast to conclude the program.
  • Build Life Skills. Build skills like cooking, budgeting, and resume building.

The Circle of Voices Program runs Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday in the evenings from 5 - 9pm. A meal is included every night of the program
