Wide Open giving back to the community!

The first three performances of our tour in 2015 were donated to community schools in Saskatoon via a random draw on December 1st.  Congratulations to our winners: Bishop Roborecki, Westmount Community School and Howard Coad School.  We will be giving away three performances in 2017.  Email us tour[at]wideopen[dot]ca to be included in the draw! (performances must take place in Saskatoon).

Where are we going?

We travel across Saskatchewan and Alberta, travel fees are included in the performance fee.  Over four months we perform nearly 100 times in 80 communities!

How do we decide when we will be in your area?

In September and October we accept bookings for the tour on a first come, first priority basis.  Once we know who wants us to come we schedule performances!  In November we send out our scheduled dates and you can see when we will be in your community.  Want a specific date? BOOK EARLY!  Due to road conditions we schedule northern communities near the beginning of the tour.  The first week of tour is always in and around Saskatoon.

Do you offer any discounts?

Yes!  Book by September 30th for a $50 discount (one per school).  Book two performances and receive a $50 discount off each performance.  Even better: the second performance can be at a neighbouring school!  Call the school up the street and if you both book you each get the $50 off (schools must be within 50km of each other).

What age range is the show for?

Pre-K to grade 6

How many students can attend?

Up to 250 students can attend.  If you have more students we will schedule two performances to ensure everyone can see and hear the show.  We recommend dividing by alternate grades (K,2,4,6 at one performance and pre-K,1,3,5 at another).

What does the school supply?

Nothing but a gym and the audience!  Wide Open tours with its own sound and lights and will set up on the gym floor.
