LUNCHBOX THEATRE PRESENTS GIRL CRUSH | March 20 – April 8, 2017
One picture can change your life – forever.
One sunny, summer day, Sharron Matthews stood on a beach in Ontario and suddenly she found herself struck by a controversial idea that changed her life…forever.
The Calgary premiere of award winning, world acclaimed cabaret artist Sharron Matthews, Girl Crush is a comic and moving musical tale that weaves Sharron’s singular re-imaginings of the diverse music of artists such as Kim Carnes, The Police, Blondie, Rick Springfield, and Cyndi Lauper into a tale of heartbreak, obsession, awe and love…and, just so you know, it is an unexpected love, people!

INTERIORS: STUDIES OF WOODLAND & FOREST | Until March 29, 2017
Solo exhibition by Saskatchewan landscape artist Gregory Hardy, with a special feature by steel sculptor Toni Prediger.
In his new series of paintings, the nature of the landscape is able to follow its own abstract path, aware of trees as powerful elements in compositional decisions. As always in Hardy’s work, colour is the guiding light.
Gregory Hardy’s work has been shown in both commercial galleries and public museums for over 30 years.
A THOUSAND SPLENDID SUNS | March 7 – April 1, 2017
Based on the bestselling novel by the author of The Kite Runner, this hauntingly beautiful story reveals the strength of the human spirit. In war-torn Afghanistan, two women are brought together by fate and cruelty. Together they will forge an unlikely friendship that leads to an act of unbreakable love.
Tuesday to Thursday and Sunday: 7:30 PM
Friday and Saturday: 8:00 PM
$35 – $134
