Admission: suggested donation of $10 and/or a new stuffie for Stephen’s Backpacks to support kids in need in Saskatoon.
Stuffed animals and dessert donations will go towards Stephen’s Backpacks, which gives backpacks with school supplies and Christmas gifts to homeless children or kids at risk of homelessness in the Saskatoon area. (See video below!) Stephen McPhee, a Calgary boy with autism and a passion to help homeless kids in his city, started the society in 2008. Admission donations will go towards the company’s future productions, including a western Canada tour of Every Brilliant Thing by Duncan Macmillan, with Jonny Donahoe, featuring Jenna-Lee Hyde.
