Less than a month till Christmas, and already we’re alternating between snowfall and flooding. The true Canadian way is to persevere through the most bipolar of weather, and the best method of forgetting your dwindling bank account is to get out and do things! Let’s start off with what the musical community has to offer this weekend, starting with Ill Scarlet playing Mavericks Thursday night with Lemon Cash, Stereokid and Remember the Fire.

Post by Nicole Milne, Associate Producer at The Great Canadian Theatre Company. Have you lived in Ottawa all your life? Did you come here for university and decide to stay and make the nation’s capital your home? No matter how long you’ve been here, I bet could you tell a visitor where to find the best cup of coffee, greasy breakfast, Italian restaurant, florist, tailor or cold pint. Or maybe you can rhyme off the top 10 attractions or show someone where to see some great theatre. In fact, many... | Continue reading article
