We will also provide a Touch Tour at 6pm. Please contact us at sumtheatreinthepark[at]gmail.com or call (306) 280-3527 if you would like to take part in this experience. Please check back here for dates and more details. 

NUT FREE

On July 12, we are planning a nut free performance in Mount Royal Park. We ask that members of the public do not bring nut products to these performances. To the parents of children with nut allergies: we are attempting to create a safer space for your children. Our event takes place in a public space so we cannot fully control what food products will be present. We will do our best, but please still be vigilant.

WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBILITY OF PARKS

Some of the parks we perform in are more accessible than others. We have tried to identify parks that require very little walking/wheeling on grass

For these performances we were also able to secure a Wheelchair Accessible portable toilet: AH Browne Park on July 4th (access from Ave D), Wilson Park on July 5th (access from Duke St), Pleasant Hill Park on July 10th (access from 21st St), GD Archibald Park West on July 11th (access from Richmond Place North).

For these performances, while they are more accessible, we were only able to secure a portable toilet that is not accessible to wheelchair users: Ashworth Holmes Park on July 15th (access from Ave F between 30th and 31st), Optimist Park on July 18th (requires use of paved pathway), Buena Vista Park on July 21st (access from the corner of Melrose and 7th St E) and Exhibition Park on July 22nd (access South West corner).

TOILETS

Sum Theatre will provide a portable toilet in each park.
