About Us

Lolabrickida Theatre is a new theatre company in Saskatoon, SK. Founder, Laura Negraeff, has nearly a decade of experience directing, producing, and performing in professional and community theatres throughout Saskatchewan. Lolabrickida is a play on the name of a Flintstones character who quits her job after tiring of the loud incessant singing of her boss, Fred. Lolabrickida (or Lola for short) became a nickname given to Laura Negraeff by her dad and a playful reminder to find humour and joy among the chaos of life. Lolabrickida Theatre is committed to creating theatre with heart and helping to expand the kinds of stories that are told on Saskatchewan stages.
