Attending live theatre and concerts is a great bang for your buck in Moose Jaw because of the plethora of exceptional talents here. Thanks to numerous productions and concerts upcoming, there are a number of great options to choose from:  

To kick off the Christmas season and a great opportunity to hold a small get-together in lieu of possibly an office Christmas Party, you can attend the Moose Jaw Community Players Dinner Theatre this coming weekend, November 22nd & 23rd at the Cosmo Centre. The players will be presenting Saskatchewan’s own ‘Paper Wheat’ production after a great dinner. Tickets are $45 and can be purchased at Prairie Bee Meadery downtown. 

The same weekend, Central Collegiate students will be presenting ‘Honk’ at the Centennial Auditorium (145 Ross St) from November 21st to 23rd. This heartwarming ‘ugly duckling’ story is a hilarious rendition of farm animals, along with music. The subject matter covers very relevant issues like bullying and learning how to have patience with those that may be different. Tickets are $15 adults/$10 students and available online at right up to the day of the show. 

Briercrest Christmas show returns again, with this year’s production ‘A Father’s Love’ playing from November 29th to December 1st. This uplifting and encouraging production will have lots of recognizable carols and songs, dancers, a big mass choir and orchestra. Alongside, Briercrest will also be putting on a full turkey dinner but unfortunately, tickets for the dinner and show were only available until November 15th. There will be a Christmas Craft Sale, too. Tickets are available online at prior to the show or at the door the day of.  Cost is $19.50 adults/$12 for 12 and under.  Family packages are available (2 adults & 2 children) for $50 with a cost of $5 for each additional child.  

Another opportunity to get into the Christmas spirit, the 19th annual Vanier Collegiate Prairie Christmas Concert this year will feature professional drummer Justin Hauck, an alumnus of the school’s music program who now performs with Regina-based Latin band Andino Suns. The concert will be held at Hillcrest Apostolic Church on Sunday, December 8th at 7 p.m.  Admission is $10 adults/$5 seniors and students and $25 for families. This includes cookies and drinks at the break.   

The 75th Annual Rotary Carol Festival will be held December 9th to 11th at Zion United Church at 7 p.m. A free-will offering has proceeds going to Rotary community projects. This is a fabulous opportunity to enjoy music of the season by talented vocalists, choirs and musicians of all ages.
