Short Cuts Festival                 Fri. –  Sun.     

The Refinery

If theatre professionals were going into battle, I imagine it would look something like this. The Short Cuts Festival is a performance of six 10-minute plays on a variety of subjects from love and loss to healthy competition and unexpected visitors. The cast is a who’s who of Saskatoon theatre and it’s a ton of fun. Tickets are $15.

Tainted Love         Saturday                

TCU Place

It’s going to be an evening full of passion and tragedy at the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra takes to the stage to present Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet. The orchestra hasn’t performed this work in 20 years and it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser just in time for Valentine’s Day. The romance doesn’t end there, violinist Andréa Tyniec  is known for her exciting interpretations of modern composers and she’ll do just that with Peteris Vasks’ Distant Light. The Saskatoon Youth Orchestra will also perform. Tickets are $34 – $73.
