Places Please: August 2015

By Sara Elizabeth Taylor

CALGARY — This time of year, theatre lovers are torn between seeing what’s onstage and spending time enjoying the remaining summer days. So why not do both? Whether in an open-air tent, along the banks of the Bow River, or in a small town theatre after a summer road trip, check out what’s on the stage this month.

Opera in the Village
Calgary Opera
East Village RiverWalk Plaza
August 13-22

Make your way down to the 900-seat open-air tent in East Village for the third year of Canada’s only outdoor summer opera festival. Whether you’re an opera aficionado or a newcomer to the art form, you’re sure to find something to love during these 10 days of music, theatre and other fun-filled activities. The centerpiece of this year’s event is The Mikado, Gilbert & Sullivan’s famous comedic opera set in Japan. There are also family-friendly matinee performances of The Scorpions’ Sting for theatre lovers with little ones.

There’s not much more you need to know about Shakespeare by the Bow than what’s right in its name: it’s classic plays by William Shakespeare performed outdoors at Prince’s Island Park. A Calgary tradition, Shakespeare by the Bow casts recently graduated post-secondary students from across Alberta, helping kick start their professional theatre careers. And even though the performances are pay-what-you-will (no ticket required), all funds go toward providing mentorship and support for Alberta’s emerging theatre artists. So bring $20, a blanket and a picnic dinner, and prepare to enjoy the Shakespeare classic The Tempest.

Last Train to Nibroc
Rosebud Theatre
July 2 – August 29

There’s no better way to experience a summer day than with a road trip out of town, so grab some snacks and hit the road for the one-hour drive to Rosebud, Alberta, to watch Last Train to Nibroc at the Rosebud Theatre. Nibroc takes place on an eastbound cross-country train in December 1940. A bookish young woman on her way to become a missionary finds herself seated next to a young flyer who has been given a medical discharge and is on his way to New York to become a writer. When the two discover that they are from neighbouring Appalachian towns, a romantic interest is sparked. Last Train to Nibroc is a touching and funny story of the places that unpredictable romance can take us.
