Persephone Theatre is a theatre company based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. The company was founded in 1974 by sisters Janet Wright and Susan Wright and named after the Greek goddess Persephone. The first season performances were held at the Mendel Art Gallery, with the second season at the Greystone Theatre and the third season at the St. Thomas Wesley Church hall. In 1983, the theatre moved into the vacated Westgate Alliance Church, which would be its home for the next 20 years. In 2007, Persephone Theatre moved to its newest facility, the Remai Arts Centre at River Landing.[1][2]
