If you are looking to disconnect or reconnect, there are options for you! Read on to find out which events this week will give you that needed break from technology or that excuse to reconnect with a friend or activity. 

TOUCH ME: SONGS FOR A (DIS)CONNECTED AGE – Runs through October 7, 2017

Equal parts hilarious and heart wrenching, this modern musical revue impresses with its soaring vocals and refreshingly true depictions of our most private technological transgressions. Winner of three Calgary Critics’ Awards, Touch Me is bound to get you thinking about the connections in your life.

UP CLOSE presents big ideas in smaller spaces. Touch Me takes place in Arts Commons Big Secret Theatre.

Running Time: 1h 30m (no intermission)

You can find your tickets for purchase at theatrecalgary.com.

BOOK CLUB II: THE NEXT CHAPTER – Runs through October 7, 2017

Book Club is BACK! Get ready for another page turner. 

There’s trouble in suburban paradise and once again it’s Book Club to the rescue.

It’s two years later and Lisa realizes her marriage has become mired in routine. Her girlfriends decide that a weekend in a resort hotel would be a perfect get away for all of them. But when conversation turns to the possibility of creating a Mommy Commune and Lisa bumps into an old flame, the ladies have to examine what marriage and sisterhood truly mean to them.

Mon-Sat @ noon; Thurs-Fri @ 6pm. Not open on Sundays

Schedule your next “Book Club” gathering with Lunchbox Theatre. Tickets available online at lunchboxtheatre.com
