We all know the pressure, awkwardness and fun that comes along with a high school reunion. That’s the setting for Mini Fridge Theatre Company’s latest show as it follows four college buddies, home to celebrate on the golf course. This dinner theatre company has had many obstacles in front of it in the last few months. The pandemic and the closure of its regular venue the Saskatoon German Cultural Centre put plans for performance in jeopardy. Luckily the Mini Fridge crew didn’t give up. This show will be held at St. John’s Anglican Cathedral Hall and will feature a physically distanced performance and a catered supper. Single tickets are $60 with tables of four for $220 and a table of 6 runs $330.

Paris of the Prairies
Saturday – 7:30p.m.
After an amazing musical journey to Paris at the end of September, the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra brings us a little closer to home this weekend with its live streamed show Paris of the Prairies. This show will feature Harry Somer’s Picasso Suite. Commissioned by the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra in 1964, it celebrates Pablo Picasso’s different artistic periods. With Saskatoon being home to its very own Picasso collection, it’s the perfect pairing. This show will also feature Cris Derksen’s Five Bucks Ahead which is a piece that samples National Film Board of Canada and CBC archive clips of the signing of the last treaty in Canada. You can grab your own ticket to this live event for $15 or sign up for the whole SSO season at $95.
Visual and performance artist Bridget Moser is in Saskatoon and she’s performing live this weekend. Moser’s exhibition My Crops Are Dying But My Body Persists has been on display at the Remai Modern since March. To wrap up the exhibition, Moser is performing Scream If You Want To Go Faster which takes on consumer culture and the pursuit of popularity online. It promises to be silly, self-deprecating and awkward… what could be better? Tickets are still available for the Saturday afternoon show and are free but you have to register to secure your spot.
