Scott Hamilton (he/him) - Scott has been the Film Programmer and mulish pillar for all things cinema at the Broadway since 2013 in addition to acting as occasional live talent booker, apprentice projectionist, and begrudging custodian when the right mess presents itself. Outside of the Broadway’s hallowed halls Scott is known for his sonic exploits with the groups KEN mode (with whom he has been nominated for two Junos), Adolyne and Grey Light District among others. If it isn’t art, he probably doesn’t have time for it.

Holly Gilroy Operations Manager & Volunteer Coordinator

Holly Gilroy (she/her) - Holly is pumped to be the Operations Manager and Volunteer Coordinator at the Broadway Theatre. The theatre has quickly become home to Holly, as she thrives in the local music scene. From attending shows to hosting Principal Prairie (a community radio show featuring local Sask music) to writing music reviews for Cups N Cakes and Exclaim! magazine, music and community are the driving force behind her. When she’s not admiring other’s music, she can usually be found screeching away learning the fiddle or playing tunes with pals.

Tanner Bayne Marketing & Promotions Manager

Tanner Bayne (he/him) - Tanner wears a few hats around here. Whether you've called the office, attended a show, read our newsletter, or visited the theatre, there's a good chance you've seen or heard from him. With a background in non-profit communications and marketing, it fits that he's our most talkative teammate! Growing up in the GSA (The Greater Saskatoon Area, he's trying to make it a thing), Tanner hoped he would end up working and living along the province's top artistic hub, Broadway Ave. Well, his hopes came true, and while some might say he spends too much time around here, that doesn't bother him in the slightest.

Colin McGuirk McNeil Building Manager

Colin McGuirk McNeil (he/him) - Colin was hired as the building manager in the summer of 2022. He is a Journeyman Carpenter, with some IT experience, and a lifelong immersion in art and music. Working at the Broadway Theatre has allowed Colin to fulfill a life long search for a workplace that’s primary function is to give a platform to diverse artistic and cultural communities. He is excited for the opportunity to continue to learn and grow alongside some of Saskatoon's finest creative minds, and if something is broken, he will probably at least try to fix it.

Photo of Regan Atkings

Regan Atkings Projectionist

Regan Atkings (he/him) - Regan started as the projectionist in the spring of 2024, taking over for the incredible and long-time Broadway Theatre champion, John Lou. Regan is no stranger to Saskatoon and area (GSA), and may be recognizable from his time at a few of the city's staple music stores on Broadway, or as a residential/commercial electrician - possibly fixing or installing something at your home or business. He's beyond excited to be a part of the Broadway Theatre team and being a part of bringing art and culture to our great city. In his time away from the projection booth, he's a musician and home recording enthusiast, playing in bands such as The New Jacobin Club, Grey Light District, and Spade the Shovelhead. He's also a maker, who enjoys woodworking, electronics and stained glass. With his passion for art and a smile he can only seem to lose for band photos, he can't wait to help carry on the tradition of inclusive entertainment that this theatre has brought us all for so many years.
