Saskatooning this April
As we approach the end of this month, I am so excited just thinking about the arrival of spring and the month of April! I am ready for the snow to melt, longer days, and the smell of spring air! With April coming, there are also so many exciting events on the horizon!

Plays at Persephone
Persephone Theatre presents The Birds & The Bees and Velveteen Rabbit

The Birds and the Bees - Gail is too preoccupied with the exponential death of her honeybees to be sympathetic to the marital strife of the grown daughter who has moved home just in time for the town ‘Turkey Days’ celebration. As they attempt to negotiate their own sticky relationship, both women’s lives are complicated by birds, bees, and “the birds and the bees.” A laugh-out-loud comedy about love, sex, science, and the artificial insemination of turkeys! The Birds and the Bees is a hilarious romp with a huge heart.

Velveteen Rabbit - Based on the book by Margery Williams, a group of toys learn what it means to be truly loved. This classic tale tells the story of the unconditional love between a boy and his toy rabbit, and how the boy’s love transforms his dearest friend into a real bunny.
The Blades are heading into the playoffs in the next couple weeks! Get your tickets and get ready to cheer! They have an unlimited playoff pass that will guarantee your seat through the entire postseason, meaning you could enjoy as many as 16 playoff games for under $100 (that’s a pretty good deal if you ask me!)
