Thigh High Theatre (THT) was created in 2010 by Cassidy Thomson and Lauren Holfeuer. The two friends had been inspired by the work and innovation they had witnessed during their travels to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2009. THT has seen success and great audience response for it's first four productions. Five Women Wearing the Same Dress and The Edible Woman (both produced within Live Five Theatre Seasons) garnered sold out runs at the Refinery in Saskatoon while Our Four Walls was an exciting original collaboration that stretched the creative skills of both audience and artist.
THT believes in creating challenging work that features female artists and female voices. They work to engage these artists in an atmosphere of positive personal growth. THT aims to provide opportunity and support for female artists looking to further their skills in all areas of the theatre arts.
The Future of Thigh High Theatre? THT has always had a long term growth plan. This growth plan aims to maintain Thigh High beliefs while developing through the following stages:
1) to develop skills, engage artists, and build an audience base while producing modern published scripts
2) to produce plays written by Saskatchewan artists (preference given to female voices but we aim to support all)
3) to produce contemporary work created by THT and an ensemble of engaged artists from Saskatchewan
4) To continue to offer assistance and guidance to our peers and our community as we grow along side them through all stages of individual/company/theatrical development
