March is a crazy time of year. Getting back from the break, homework assignments piling up… Why not give yourself a break and check out one of these March events? 

Voice of the People Constitutional Reform 

There will be several sessions of the Voice of the People Constitutional Reform for “proposed amendments to the Constitution of the Métis Nation – Saskatchewan and related legislation” all across Saskatchewan.  

On March 8 there will be a session in Saskatoon, one will be in Lloydminster on March 14, another in North Battleford on March 15, Nipawin on March 19, Tisdale on March 20, and La Ronge on March 27. They’ll be in Regina in early April, so if you’re interested you can check it out at metisnationsk.com/constitutional-reform/. 

Family, Fairies, Wishes & War: A Showcase of Short Plays 

From March 13 to March 16, the University of Regina’s Devised Theatre 220 class will be putting on their production of Family, Fairies, Wishes & War: A Showcase of Short Plays. All six plays performed were written by University of Regina (U of R) students. Each show will start at 7:30 p.m., with the exception of the matinee on Friday at 1 p.m., and will be at the Shu-Box Theatre in the Riddell Centre.  

Tickets cost $20 for adults, $15 for non-U of R students and seniors, and are free for U of R students with their student ID. It’s a great opportunity to support fellow students and see some live theatre. You can learn more at showpass.com/fringe-festival-production. 

The House at Pooh Corner 

If you’re like me and you were a huge Winnie the Pooh fan as a kid, The House at Pooh Corner is a must-attend event.  

From March 22 to 23, the Do It With Class Young People’s Theatre will be performing Robert Ursan’s The House at Pooh Corner at the Riddell Centre in the U of R. The show will start at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and there’s a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday. Tickets are $25 for non-students and $15 for students and seniors.

The Prom 

Local theatre company Sterling Productions will be putting on their next rendition of The Prom at the Conexus Arts Centre from March 26 to 28. The Prom is a story about a girl named Emma from Indiana who wants to go to the prom, but the school won’t let her. So, four Broadway stars head all the way down to Emma’s hometown to throw her their own prom.  

It’s a fun show with upbeat music and a great message. Learn more at conexusartscentre.ca/the-prom. 

All Ages Drag Show 

The Gay & Lesbian Community of Regina will be hosting an All Ages Drag Show on March 30 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.. It’s a great opportunity to support local drag and have some fun! The event will take place at Q Nightclub & Lounge downtown and while all ages are allowed to come to see the drag show on the dance floor, you must be 19 to go into the lounge. 

I hope you have a wonderful March and that, if you choose to go to any of these events, you have a great time.
