For nearly a century (only 5 years to go on that one) the Harlem Globetrotters have been wowing crowds with its incredible team of court stars. Now, after a break due to the pandemic, they are hitting courts across Canada with the Spread Game Tour. This is a show that celebrates the fun and athleticism of basketball in a show for the whole family. It’s full of comedy and audience participation. This show is a slam dunk! Tickets are $32 – $116.
It’s a Saskatoon quartet that delivers the good times, every time. The Barrelmen are back with their combination of original tunes and favourite covers. These guys always draw a big hometown crowd. Join Berkeley, Jody, Tyler, and Craig as they deliver a great evening of music and friendship. Tickets are $22 – $27 and they are going fast.
A film about the complexities of aging as the story follows a retired hairdresser, Mr. Pat, who’s escaped his nursing home and ends up in a small town to style a dead woman’s hair for her funeral. He confronts the past and rediscovers himself along the way. While you’re at the gallery check out the video exhibit A Dying Hare by Regina’s Nic Wilson and local artist Zachari Logan’s Ghost Meadows. It’s an evening filled with beautiful art. You can do all of this for the price of admission, $10 – $12.
If you’re looking for a chill evening filled with soothing sounds, look no further than ARIE. Liam Arie Santha hails from Saskatoon and released his first full album in 2020 called Thisiswhatiwantmylifetosoundlike. It was a work he recorded entirely on his phone. He’s been steadily releasing new singles ever since. This is a beautiful, stripped-down performance you don’t want to miss. Hafford rockers The Brothers G and Edmonton’s Brayden King will be sharing the stage. Tickets are $17.
Don’t feel like braving the weather to see a show? No problem, the Prairie Roots Ensemble has you covered with its presentation of Ellen Froese. This will be a beautiful evening full of jazz-influenced arrangements and Froese’s own brand of quiet, reflective music. The musicians had hoped that this would be a live show but have erred on the side of caution and are switching to the live stream format. Slow dance in your living room to these melancholic melodies. Tickets to the live stream are $10.
You know him from his performances at Just For Laughs and now Canadian-born comedian Jeremy Hotz is hitting the road for The Marquis de Sad Tour.

It’s a concert to mark the start of a new year and all that’s ahead.

Allison Miller, Max Ostic and the Mistral Five are featured in this live stream performance. Tickets to the live stream are $20 – $50 or you can grab a season subscription for $99.
