Gordon Tootoosis Nikaniwin Theatre (formerly the Saskatchewan Native Theatre Company) is a 16 year old award-winning theatre company based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. It is our mission to produce and present innovative cultural theatre that engages and empowers Indigenous youth, artists, and the greater Saskatchewan community.
In addition to our professional theatre season, we invest in our city's Indigenous youth through various theatre programs:
Our Circle of Voices program, now in its 13th year, engages 12-15 young artists in creating culturally-based theatre and introduces them to Saskatoon’s vibrant professional theatre community (4 of its alumni are now running the company, and one more is the new artist-in-residence!).
GTNT’s Playhouse program recently expanded from 3 to 5 inner city schools to which it provides a noon-hour drama program for elementary-age children.
Also, our newly launched Theatre@Noon drop-in program for at-risk youth in Saskatoon has already gained a steady base of participants!
