Bloody Parade      Sunday

Kiwanis Memorial Park

If you see a few pale bloody faces wandering down the Broadway bridge this weekend, don’t panic. The undead will be roaming the road as part of Zombie Walk 2017. The event encourages everyone to dress up in their favourite makeup and costumes to parade from Kiwanis Memorial Park to The Broadway Theatre. There are a few rules when it comes to zombification, you can’t climb the bridge or fences, don’t lunge at cars or pedestrians and no weapons. Even if you don’t dress up, this is going to be quite the scene on our city’s streets. The event begins at the bandshell at 5:00p.m. with the walk beginning at 5:30p.m.. All the fun wraps up with a screening of Fido at The Broadway Theatre at 6:30p.m..

Who Has Dominion?        Oct. 12 – 22

Studio 914

It’s a story of power, rules and the struggle to belong and it serves up a strong examination of how we live here in Canada. Dominion is the first play by poet Andrea Ledding and Gordon Tootoosis Nīkānīwin Theatre is bringing it to the stage for its world premiere. The story follows two couples Jack and Marie-Phillippe who’ve just moved into a new home. Tatawaw and Nimitaw are the previous owners and are locked in the bathroom. Through their story, the audience is able to examine the history of Canada and the reserve system. The play is a great mix of the serious and the ridiculous and it all ends with the question of reconciliation. Tickets are $15-$20.
