Saskatoon Summer Players (SSP) is a community-based, non-profit organization committed to working with local, volunteer theatre artists to produce large-scale musical theatre productions in the city of Saskatoon.
Catherine fell in love with musicals after watching The Sound of Music as a young girl in Hong Kong. She has been a SSP Board member since 2009, witnessing the rapid growth and many changes within the organization. Catherine first joined the SSP family as a cast member in The Pirates of Penzance, SK (2005). She also performed in The Producers (2012), Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (2013) and several Broadway Bash productions. As set painting coordinator and marketing chair, Catherine was fortunate to work with many talented volunteers in a number of productions. Many thanks to the SSP volunteers and the Saskatoon community for supporting SSP for over 50 years. Great things happen when we all give a little!
