A busy month of November continues

By Nick Kuhl on November 9, 2019.

So many local events, so few days. November is becoming Lethbridge’s 
take on rush hour!
    Tonight, there’s a choice between the final performances of three 
high-energy productions. “Newsies,” staged collaboratively by 
Lethbridge Musical Theatre and performing arts students at Chinook 
High, will close with a 7 p.m. show at the Yates Centre — after a 2 
p.m. matinee earlier in the day. Check the Yates for seats.
• • •
Also at 7 p.m., two Lethbridge Community Band ensembles will present 
“Something Old, New, Borrowed and the Blues” at College Drive 
Community Church; check for tickets at the door.
And at 7:30 p.m., it’s the final show for one of Shakespeare’s most 
brutal tragedies, “Titus Andronicus” in University Theatre, with 
tickets at  uLethbridge.ca/tickets.
• • •
On Sunday, 8 p.m., William Prince will perform in the Geomatic Attic. 
For tickets and upcoming shows: geomaticattic.ca.

Remembrance Day events Monday will include an indoor memorial service 
at 9:30 a.m. in Exhibition Pavilion, a noon ceremony at the downtown 
cenotaph, and a no-charge presentation — 12:30 to 4 p.m. — at the 
Lethbridge Military Museum in the Vimy Ridge Armoury at the airport. 
It will focus on D-Day in Europe and the decisive Battle of Normandy.
• • •
On Tuesday and Wednesday, Lethbridge’s explorer/photographer Dennis 
Shigematsu will offer a no-charge presentation of his latest excursion 
— “Armenia to Baku, Azerbaijan, Tbilisi, Georgia and Yerevan” — 
at 7 p.m. in the downtown library’s Theatre Gallery.
On Thursday, a Theatre Gallery audience will hear Robert McLeman 
present this year’s Alex Johnston Lecture Series event, “Drought 
Disasters and Displacement on the Prairies: Past, Present and Future.”
The 7:30 p.m. talk, which will consider ways to make our communities 
safer, is sponsored by the Lethbridge Historical Society, the 
University of Lethbridge and the Lethbridge Public Library.

Also Thursday, Lethbridge military historian Glenn Miller will tell 
how Indigenous veterans made such a large contribution to Canada’s 
First World War effort, at 7 p.m. in the Galt Museum.
• • •
  Just a few minutes south, a “Victorian Prairie Christmas” will be 
celebrated Wednesday and Thursday at the Galt Historic Railway Park 
near Stirling, from 1 to 4 p.m. each day, with live entertainment and 
a seasonal meal. For details, call Geoff at 403-327-2854.

An adult comedy, “The Pink Unicorn” will be presented Nov. 15 and 
16 by Theatre Outre, downtown in Didi’s Playhaus. Ashley Thomson 
plays a widowed Texas mother — as well as her daughter, Trisha, 
who’s gradually coming out to her mother as queer. Tickets are online 
at theatreoutre.ca.

  Christmas craft sales open Nov. 15 and 16 at Casa and the Southern 
Alberta Art Gallery. Hours for both will be 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, 10 
a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. For youngsters, a Christmas crafts-making 
session will be held Nov. 28 and 29 at the Helen Schuler Nature Centre.

Also on Friday, the city’s Bright Lights Festival will be launched in 
Galt Gardens. Watch for Santa!

And next Saturday, National Child Day events for parents and kids will 
be held at Lethbridge College, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The free event will 
include a community craft project, multicultural dancing, a “roving 
gym,” games, outdoor play, prizes and food!
