All is calm until they hear the pitter patter of hooves on the roof. Leave it to Weavers is a brand-new comedy from Gordon Tootoosis Nīkānīwin Theatre and although the original performance in front of a live audience at the Broadway Theatre couldn’t happen, the show must go on.

The SaskTel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival is spreading Christmas cheer exactly as you’d expect… with a little music. There are two virtual concerts you can enjoy. The first is Thursday night with a performance by Pink Martini. The group performs pop, Latin and jazz music in that cool, rat pack style. Tickets are $25. The second show is a holiday hello from Saskatoon songstress Elly Thorn Sunday night. Thorn will perform a combo of her own original tunes and classic favourites. This performance is free and will be on YouTube and Facebook.

Let’s get out the cookie cutters and have some fun with Sylvia Chave. No matter how excited you are for Christmas, you can be that you know some kids who blow your enthusiasm out of the water.

This will be an online show and with the purchase of your ticket, you will be able to access the performance for 24hours. The cost is $7 a family and groups of 20 or more can purchase a viewing for $45.
