Native Studies 101 Thursday
A Dakota, a Dene, a Cree and a Metis walk into a Native Studies class being taught by a settler professor… It sounds like the opening to a great joke and it’s the premise behind Dakota Ray Hebert’s play Native Studies 101. The show is all about the fact that many Indigenous people don’t learn about their own culture from Indigenous people. The play was commissioned by Gordon Tootoosis Nīkānīwin Theatre for its Circle of Voices program. This is a theatre school for aspiring artists. The show is a great mix of comedy and social commentary. You still have one more chance tonight to see the show tickets are $15 – $20.

SCUM: A Manifesto Thurs. – Sun.
It’s a look at the evolution of feminism and what it all means in today’s society. SCUM: A Manifesto centres around the story of Valerie Solanas, a radical feminist who wrote Society for Cutting Up Men in 1967. It was a call to overthrow the government and kill all men. The show also follows two modern day feminists as they discover the manifesto and try to define themselves after reading it. This play made its debut at the Saskatoon Fringe Festival in 2016 and has gone through many changes since then. It’s provocative and challenging and also comes along with a nudity warning. This weekend is your final chance to see this show. Tickets are $22 – $25.

Mini Pop Kids: Take Flight Tour Saturday
I love it when my kids and I can agree on musical choices and let’s face it, who doesn’t like a good pop song? I was a child of the 80s and I remember how cool it was to sing along with kids who were my age singing some of the day’s top songs. The Mini Pop Kids are known for their catchy covers and the group is out on the road. The Saskatoon show is a matinee performance so you can even take the little ones. Tickets are $30 – $90.
