Chautauqua will play itself out over the weekend

Written by

Local fans of live theatre are in for a treat this weekend at the Lyric Theatre’s 5th Annual Summer Chautauqua Theatre Festival, where they will be able to enjoy six different professional one-act plays from July 5-8.

A month after the release of the third book in Henry Ripplinger’s best-selling The Angelic Letters series, the response continues to be overwhelming for the Lumsden, Sask. author.

With Windscape Kite Festival set to kick off in Swift Current on Saturday morning, people of all ages  have an exciting weekend ahead.

Local young composer Ryan Lee’s creative and original piano composition entitled ‘Max the Mouse’ won first place at this year’s ‘11 years and under Class 1, Category A’ Saskatchewan Registered Music Teachers’ Composer Competition.

The Finals show of Big Dog 92-7/Astral Media’s “The Next Big Thing” country talent competition was held June 20 at The Pump Roadhouse in Regina, with Blake Berglund (Kennedy SK), Jannecke (Saskatoon), Myshel Pajuaar & The Midnight Roses (Swift Current) and Foxx Worthee (Regina) aiming to convince an esteemed panel of judges that they should be selected as this year’s winner. Following confident performances by all four artists and a nail-biting wait for a decision by the judges, Myshel and her band was declared the winner.

For the past ten years, Swift Current music lovers have celebrated the longest nights of the year at Long Day's Night Music Festival, held in conjunction with the Windscape Kite Festival from June 21-24. The event brings fantastic performers from across North America to play in a big-top tent at the corner of Marston Street and 11th Avenue SW in Swift Current. This year's lineup features four nights of incredible music, with both headline acts and opening performers.
