    Billets for 2017

    Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan is looking for accommodations for members of our 2017 cast who will be coming in from Regina and working with us from June 1st to August 22nd.

    If you’re looking for responsible tenants to house sit, sublet, or temporarily rent your furnished suite, we’d like to hear from you! Especially if your suite is near the University of Saskatchewan, or the Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan Festival site!  Even if you only have availability for one of these months, drop us a line: we may be able to make that work.

    What we need to know is:

    How many bedrooms does your furnished suite have?
    If the artists will be subletting or renting, how much is the monthly (or weekly) rent? 
    If the artists will be house-sitting, are there any additional duties required (i.e. pet sitting, yard maintenance, etc).
    Where is the suite located?
    Is the suite available for June – August? If not, how long is it available?
    If you have any pictures of the suite, they would be much appreciated!

    Our out of town artists will be in rehearsals during the daytime for the month of June and the first week of July, and performing in the evenings in July and August. All artists hired by the Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan are professional artists; they make their living in the theatre industry. While in Saskatoon, these artists will be living out of suitcases, and will be continuing to pay rent in Regina. Any potential break in rental rates would be greatly appreciated.

    In return, you’ll have a professional, responsible tenant or house sitter in your suite, and the festival will furnish you with the following:
    Two vouchers for each opening night of the festival
    Two vouchers for each mainstage performance
    An autographed poster from the 2017 season
    An invitation to our Volunteer and Staff BBQ
    A thank-you in the festival program (8,500 copies)

    Please email Ed at if you’re interested in billeting for us this summer!
