OSAC is pleased to launch a new title for the Fall 2017 /Spring 2018 School Touring Season - OSAC Performing Arts in Schools!
Each year, Saskatchewan students, many of whom live in rural areas, enjoy music, dance, drumming, mime, theatre, magic, storytelling, and circus arts performances.Each fall and spring, professional performing artists from Saskatchewan, Canada and beyond, are selected to tour for their artistic excellence and special ability to interact with and relate to student audiences. Study guides, with suggestions for pre- and post-concert discussion and activities, are sent to schools before each tour. Block booking helps to lower the fee/performance because travel expenses are amortized over two or three weeks. School centres pay a $30 annual associate member fee when they book, and a $10 fee is added to the price of each concert.
For over 49 years, OSAC has nurtured the traditions of presenting excellence in the performing arts for adults, children and family audiences in various genres and disciplines. OSAC annually presents over 300 live community and school performances, attended by a total audience of approximately 75,000. This is possible because of a dedicated network of volunteers committed to making culture an integral part of Saskatchewan community life, and vital funding from Saskatchewan Lotteries, Saskatchewan Arts Board, and Canadian Heritage. Saskatchewan Lotteries benefits more than 12,000 sport, culture, and recreation organizations around the province. Each year 600,000 people participate in programs and from activities initiated by these organizations, over $1 billion of economic activity is generated, and 23,000 jobs are sustained.
