Elder Brother and the Bison

Various Outdoor Rinks 

Sum Theatre and La Troupe du Jour are joining forces for a trilingual outdoor show for the whole family performed on skates. Elder Brother and the Bison is the story of a bison in search of a carefree life. He doesn’t realize that bison have their own struggles too. The play is based on a Cree story about empathy and walking a mile in another’s hooves. The show has English, French, and Cree dialogue. January 25th – February 3rd, the show will tour school rinks in Saskatoon. The performance will then head off for tour stops in Prince Albert, Regina and North Battleford. The show is only 15 minutes long and it’s absolutely free to attend.

Disney’s The Lion King Live in Concert  

Jan. 27

1:30pm & 7:30pm 

TCU Place    

It’s been 30 years since we were introduced to Simba and his family and watched his journey to become king. It’s hard to believe in all that time that Disney never created a live to film version for an orchestra when it had already done so for films like Frozen and The Little Mermaid. It was only after the company was approached by Mark Turner at the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra that they decided to do it. Saskatoon will be the first audience to ever see this version of the story played out live on stage. To celebrate the world premiere the SSO has two performances instead of the usual one evening offering. This means families of younger kids don’t have to worry about keeping them up past bedtime. It’s a magical way to introduce your kids to live performance. Tickets are $78 – $112 and they are going fast.

The Comedy Pit                     

Jan. 30            

Hudson’s Pub         

If you need to lighten your mood, why not spend a Tuesday with some of the funniest comics our city have to offer. Seven different comics will take the stage including comics Dylan Williamson and comedic musician Farideh. I saw Farideh live before Christmas and just can’t get enough of her hilarious songs about parenting. Tickets are $10 – $15.
