We provide performance opportunities and performance training for Saskatchewan’s theatre artists of the future.
DIWC provides talented Saskatchewan youth with performance opportunities and performance training, leveraging the young performers skills in dance, voice, drama, for the benefit of full scale musical theatre productions.
Many graduates of the company have gone on to become professional performers, including Paul Alexander Nolan, who played Jesus in the ever- popular Jesus Christ Superstar, on Broadway; Tatiana Maslany, who stars in the BBC America series Orphan Black; Amy Matysio, who plays Kenny in the comedy series Single White Spenny, currently airing on Showcase, Jacqueline Burtney as Purity and Erma in Roundabout Theatre’s production of Anything Goes; and many others such as Jeff Irving, Kyle Golemba, Tess Degenstein, Sara-Lys Huck and Ingrid Nilsen.
But it’s not just the performers who benefit from the company. Nearly 1,000 school children and youth take in DIWC productions each year. DIWC offers an opportunity for these youth to experience the performing arts, theatre and the works of classical authors in a manner that is tailored to youth.
A registered non-profit corporation which was originally founded in 1993, Do It With Class offers three major full scale productions annually.
