    • Opening this week:
      • Anne Washburn’s 10 out of 12 -an homage to the tech rehearsal – starts its run at The Roxy on Gateway. Previews are October 4 – 5, and opening night is October 6. The show runs until October 16.
        • Stay tuned for my preview of the show with actor Robert Benz.
      • Bittergirl – The Musical runs in The Club at the Citadel Theatre October 4 – November 6.
    • Closing this week:
    • Congratulations to the 25 Most Influential Artists, as named by the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.
    • There are so many arts workshops listed on Theatre Alberta’s What’s On blog!
    • Speaking of Theatre Alberta:


  • Have I mentioned that Taylor Chadwick, of What It Is Podcast fame, was recently on the Modern Manhood podcast?
  • Reminder: the Black Arts Matter (BAM!) Festival will be presented as part of Canoe 2017 & the call for submissions is open until October 14!
  • Arts organizations are putting on so many unique events lately! Opera Nuova’s Tea Muse – which pairs a tea tasting with performances to match the flavour notes of the teas – caught my eye this week. The event is October 18 at  Upper Crust Cafe – tickets are $40.
  • And speaking of events that combine the arts and food – have I mentioned SkirtOberfest 2016 on October 22? SkirtOberfest is a fundraiser in support of SkirtsAfire herArts Festival. I’m on the board of SkirtsAfire and help organize our annual fall fundraiser. This year we’re doing a Bavarian theme, with sweet & savoury pretzels from Zwick’s Pretzels and a beer tasting from Situation Brewery! Tickets are $30 in advance, $40 at the door – we’ve sold out two years in a row, so be sure to get your tickets early!
