Dadventure Sat – Mon The Refinery
Don’t go stir crazy with the kids this weekend. If you want to have a few minutes where you get to sit still and relax and they have a blast, head into the world of Wide Open Theatre. Dadventure is the final offering for this season from our puppet pals. It’s a father-son story about a dad who’s too busy to take his son to the beach. In a dream the dad is kidnapped by a band of pirates and the fun ensues. There are two show times 11am and 1pm. Tickets are $11-$15.
Kelly Taylor Wed. Capitol Music Club
Arguably the funniest guy to come out of Prince Albert, Kelly Taylor has been a mainstay on the comedy scene for a while now. He’s appeared on the Just For Laughs stage, has appeared on film and T.V. and was named Canadian College Comedian of the Year. You can see him and his special guests live on stage at the Capitol Music Club next Wednesday. Tickets are $15
Beatrice & Virgil Wed. – June 4 Persephone Theatre
For many of us it’s a point of pride that Mann Booker Prize Winner Yann Martel lives and writes in our city but for Last Exit Theatre, it’s a chance for fresh material. The indie theatre troupe is premiering Martel’s Beatrice & Virgil which has been adapted for the stage. The story is of a well-known writer who recruits a mysterious taxidermist to help write a play. It’s a chance to see masterful storytelling on stage. Tickets are $24
Popcorn Elder Thurs. – May 29 Gordon Tootoosis Nikaniwin Theatre
If you didn’t get out to Meacham’s Dancing Sky Theatre to see this show, now’s your chance to see it in the city. Popcorn Elder is a brand new play by Saskatoon’s own Curtis Peeteetuce. The show is about the father/son relationship, and the fight for reconciliation. Caution that this is an adult show, there’s quite a lot of blue language. Popcorn Elder is a show that’s got a lot of national attention and it should get yours. Tickets are $18-$24
