Regina’s refugee youth share stories in theatre camp show
August 3, 2016
CBC News | A group of refugee and immigrant youth are creating a show inspired by their cultural backgrounds and personal stories at a theatre camp in Regina.
The two-week camp at Regina’s Globe Theatre brings together young people from a range of backgrounds to create and rehearse for their own show.
The young performers, aged between 12 and 18, will present their show on the last day of the camp.
This year, the camp is welcoming many Syrian refugees.
“We have less English-speaking youth with us and, even during our first day of orientation. I could tell that there were some cultural differences that we might want to help support them with as they are settling and integrating here in Canada,” said camp facilitator Chancz Perry.
The theatre camp is run by the Globe Theatre School and the Regina Open Door Society.Back
