Developed by long-time friends and peers, Kevin Niessen and Barrett Ross,
PR Products has grown into one of Saskatchewan's premier production companies.
Focussing on service, and quality, PR Productions has grown quickly over the last number of years. Providing regular services for customers such as The Sasktel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival, University of Saskatchewan and Louis, The Broadway Theatre, and The Ness Creek Festival just to name a few.
After working together at another production company, friends Kevin Niessen and Barrett Ross decided that it was time to break out on their own. In 2009, Kevin and Barrett formed PR Productions.
The first contract that PR Productions was awarded was for Louis, The University of Saskatchewan's Student Union bar and event centre. One of Saskatoon's great live music venues, Louis is still a valued PR Productions customer. Since Louis, PR Productions has grown to include many Saskatchewan based organizations, such as Ness Creek Music Festival, The Broadway Theatre, FIBA 3x3 basketball tournament, Nutrien Fireworks Festival, Elim Tabernacle, Remai Modern LUGO fundraiser, University of Saskatchewan Convocation, and most recently Sasktel Jazz Festival Main Stage.
As PR Productions continues to grow, we do so with pursuit of mastering of our craft as our mandate. Customer service, and a professional attitude are our building blocks to making your experience with us, rewarding.
