Pick of the Day: The Old Elephant’s Christmas

This is a joint presentation of the Friends of the Royal Sask Museum and the Hemophilia Association of Saskatchewan and features an interactive show written and performed by Saskatchewan artist Brenda Baker. Through a mix of original and traditional music she tells the family-friendly story of the world’s smallest elephant and how he goes missing one Christmas after having been a fixture for years.

Following the show, there’ll be a cookie decorating party. Tix are $12, with a four-pack going for $45.  Show time is 2 p.m. at the Royal Sask Museum.

Also on tonight at the Exchange, there’s Metal in Memory II. Featuring a pile of local metal bands, including Numenon, In Darkness, Blasphemy Reborn, Bloodwork and Lunacy, this concert commemorates the death of Chris Kniffen (pictured, right) — a Regina teen with ties to the local music and art scenes who was killed by a hit and run driver while skateboarding home from work in north Regina a little over two years ago.

Proceeds will go toward an art scholarship in Kniffen’s name. Tix are $10 advance.
