Mysterious Comedy         Fri. – Sun.

Brian King Centre, Warman

It’s a romp through the world of murder mystery, with a twist. The Scared Scriptless Players in Warman have been working hard to establish an arts scene in the bedroom community of Warman and they’re doing it this weekend with Bloody Murder. This is a Clue-like comedy where the characters are trying to figure out the murderer among them. This performance is in a dinner theatre format so you can make an afternoon or evening of it. Tickets are $30-$40.

Tea Time        Sunday

O’Brians Event Centre


Hard to believe it’s been 20 years! Though it may make you feel old to hear that Canadian band The Tea Party release its breakthrough album Transmission two decades ago, I hope you’ll be able to find comfort in the fact that the band is hitting the road again. To celebrate the milestone, The Tea Party is touring to celebrate its album which reached double platinum status and earned them a Juno nomination. Tickets are $35 – $50.
