Collaboration Station

Arts and Theatre for Kids Since 2020

Engaging Kids Through Art

Since 2020, the Collaboration Station has been a hit at the Saskatoon Fringe Festival. Focused on engaging kids in theatre and arts, Collaboration Station operates as a free drop-in program where children design and build their own puppets under the guidance of local theatre and puppeteer professionals. 

In Spring 2022, the Collaboration Station expanded to include the Collaboration Station+! This program, supported by the Community Initiatives Fund, consisted of both a weekly class (for kids ages 8 to 10 who will work with professional theatre artist and arts educator, Angela Christie to create their own show) and a 3-day costume-specific workshop (for kids ages 8 to 12 who will get to learn about and experiment in costume design)!

Coming Soon:

Collaboration Station at the 2023 Saskatoon Fringe!

25th Street Theatre is pleased to present Collaboration Station at the 2023 Saskatoon Fringe! Collaboration Station is a free, drop-in, theatre-centered program where children (aimed at ages five to twelve) can work with professional artists to engage in hands-on art creation with a focus on theatre. The children that participate in the 2023 incarnation of Collaboration Station will be guided towards creating costume headpieces based on a variety of different, well-known plays – actively engaging in a professional theatre practice at an approachable level.

Each day, participants will be guided towards creating a costume headpiece based on well-known plays and stories such as “The Wizard of Oz” or “The Lion King.” Materials will be provided, and the children will be able to work on designing and building their costume at their own pace – supported by two professional Saskatoon theatre artists. They will be able to show off their designs on a miniature stage, and can take their pieces home with them once they’re done creating.

Thanks to the support of the Community Initiatives Fund, Collaboration Station is totally FREE to participate in – no registration required!
