Stages Model & Talent, Inc. has been in business in the city of Regina since 1985. Kathryn Barnett, the founder of Stages Model & Talent, Inc. Agency, was involved in the business since the age of 17. Her goal for Stages was to provide the opportunity for the young people of Saskatchewan to be promoted to international agencies around the world. She completed that goal in 1987, and promoted models to agencies in Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Italy, Paris, Germany, Switzerland, Australia, Greece, Spain, New York, Miami, and Canada for almost 18 years.
On August 1, 2005, Stages Model & Talent, Inc. was sold. Margaret Titanich is now the owner/director of the agency. With a new owner, came new ideas, and the first noticeable change was that the agency was divided into two divisions. There was now a Modeling Division, and a Talent Division. Yes, Stages expanded their agency to include a talent division, which would include work in television commercials, print advertising, hostessing and feature films that are being shot here in Saskatchewan.
Over the years, Stages models have appeared on billboards, magazine covers, catalogues, and runways around the world. Their actors can be seen in feature film projects, commercials and print advertising.
