It’s an evening of murder mystery where improv acting is key and the audience can help catch a killer. Shear Madness is one of the longest running non musical plays in history and its capping off the 2016/2017 season at Persephone Theatre. The show is set in a beauty parlour and the landlady, who lives upstairs is killed. The audience gets in on the action to help figure out who’s responsible. Actors improvise much of the dialogue and it’s based on current events. It’s sure to be a fun and unpredictable night out. Tickets are $18 – $22.
He’s one of the top sketch comics this country has produced. Kevin Mcdonald is remembered fondly here in Canada for his work on Kids In The Hall but he’s continued his career with roles on That 70s Show, Lilo & Stitch, Arrested Development and has a brand new web series called Papillon. McDonald has stayed true to his comedic roots with his current show which combines stand-up comedy, storytelling and a special improv comedy performance with our own Saskatoon Soaps. Tickets, at $27, are sure to be a hot commodity.

This is an all ages show and tickets are $35.
