It’s a chance for the whole family to head out to the theatre for a few laughs and a delicious meal. Dancing Sky Theatre returns to the stage for Farmer Joe and the Money Trees. This is a show that combines the magic of music, satire and puppetry to tell the story of Jack and his long-suffering mother the Widow Spriggins. Jack is trying to help his mother save the family farm and also outwit the town slickster Monty St. Orange. These shows have become a holiday favourite out at Dancing Sky and to celebrate the theatre’s 20th anniversary, they’ve brought back many of the original cast from its 2004 production. Tickets are available for the meal and show at $56.50 or just the show at $30.
It’s a powerful blend of pow wow music with reggae and hip hop. A Tribe Called Red is still riding high on its most recent album We Are The Hallucination. The group was shortlisted for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize and have gone on to be recognized across our country. This is a high-energy show that seeks to build understanding between cultures and heck, get you up groovin’. Tickets are $20.
The Kohkoms of Gordon Tootoosis Nīkānīwin Theatre’s The Rez Christmas series are back for another adventure. This show is a favourite with audiences and as the writer Curtis Peeteetuce likes to say, it’s like if the Golden Girls was set on the reservation. This year’s adventures sees the Kohkoms head off to Sin City to take part in the world’s largest Bingo game and maybe even meet their heartthrob Tom Jones. Vegas Vacation: A Rez Christmas Story is fun for the whole family. Tickets are $15 – $20.
