SHACKLETON RETURNS !
The last great story of Antarctic exploration, Shackleton and his men were stranded on the pack ice after their ship, the Endurance sank. As if that wasn’t enough, Shackleton and 5 of his crew sailed 800 miles across the Southern Ocean in an open boat after which 3 of the party crossed the glaciers and mountains of South Georgia to reach help for the men stranded on Elephant Island. Come and enjoy an evening of adventure in a cozy pub. With 16 local and international beers on tap plus great food, you can experience Antarctic adventure in a much more cozy setting . To our knowledge, seal and bannock will not be on the menu.

THE GOOD GAME by ROY TEED
Friday, January 31st 2020 to Saturday, February 8th 2020
Four old timers from a championship team 30 years ago are suiting up for a match against the current Junior Team. Taking place in the arena dressing room, there’s lots of reversion to roles played when they were teenagers, and revelations of how life unfolded over the years. Laughs abound in the locker room banter between Charlie Boyd, the goalie who took too many pucks to the head, flamboyant French-Canadian Francois “Pinkie” Lavac, former team captain Zach Taylor whose NHL dream was dashed by injuries, and the team’s enforcer-turned-English-professor, C.J. MacDonald .
THE WAR BRIDES ARE COMING
Friday, April 10th 2020 to Saturday, April 18th 2020
By Calgary author, Gail Whitehead, the play is set in Olds Alberta. War brides are coming from Europe to join their new families in Olds, Alberta after the war, but the families are not as welcoming as the girls could have hoped and they are met with tension and not exactly open arms. Some adjustments are needed if the war brides are to live here happily ever after.
