The Broadway Theatre in Saskatoon has been around since the 1940s, but the non-profit organization is celebrating its 30th anniversary.

“Since that time it has taken many shapes and forms, and in 1993 we incorporated as a non-profit, as being 100 per cent community owned and operated, and this October is our 30th anniversary,” said Lenore Maier, executive director.

Oct. 25 marks the anniversary date, and Maier said they have a full slate of programming coming to the stage in October as part of the celebration.

“We have a whole bunch of different ways for people to engage with the theatre than they have been in the past,” Maier said

Maier said they’ve also created a new membership model with different tiers, adding that it gives people new entry points to the theatre.

“One membership doesn’t necessarily suit all the different people in our community, and so by having these different options it allows for easier access points for people to engage with the theatre.”
