Warm weather has put a crimp in some of the outdoor stuff we’re supposed to be doing this time of year, but Festival du Voyageur is still going strong in St. Boniface and Dollhouse of Commons has three days of outdoor performances.
If you want to hide indoors, there’s a comedy showcase at the Park Theatre on Friday, a small film fest on Sunday and a theatrical ode to Agatha Christie all weekend long courtesy of the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre.
WHAT: COMEDY — Winnipeg Comedy Showcase
When: Friday, Feb. 24, at 9 p.m.
Where: The Park Theatre at 698 Osborne St.
The Winnipeg Comedy Showcase is celebrating its third birthday Friday night at the Park Theatre with Paul Rabliauskas, Melanie Dahling and Angie St. Mars.
As usual, Jared Story will host, tall cans will be in the fridge, and there will be hours of comedy for only $10.
Also on the bill for this one are Ben Walker, Tyler Penner and Andy Noble. Sometimes, there are a few surprise guests, depending on who is in town.
These almost always sell out in advance, so if you want tickets, get them early, and show up before 8:30 p.m. if you want a good seat!
WHAT: FEST — Festival du Voyageur
When: Friday, Saturday and Sunday
Where: Voyageur Park at 866 St. Joseph St.
Cost: $20 for a day or $34 for a fest pass
The snow sculptures might be a bit melted, but there’s still lots to check out at Festival du Voyageur this weekend.
Friday night, William Prince and Iskwe are playing in the Rivière-Rouge Tent, Kevin Roy and the Reverend Rambler are in the Sugar Shack and Living Hour and SC Mira are playing the Prairie Tent.
Saturday, Sierra Noble, 3Peat, Faouzia and Attica Riots are in the Rivière-Rouge Tent and try to catch ATLAAS, Adam Hanney and Iskwe in the Prairie Tent if you can.
Oh, and Mama Cutsworth is spinning at Fort Gibraltar after 9 p.m.!
