Across North America and Europe this is a true Yuletide tradition. In Regina, Do It With Class Young People’s Theatre is doing the honours with this presention of Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet by Vancouver’s Coastal City Ballet.
That’s how I blurbed this in the 14 Days section of our Dec. 13 edition. The performance goes Thursday and Friday at Conexus Arts Centre with two shows daily at 12:30 and 7:30 p.m. Tickets are Adults $29.50, Seniors & Students $25.50, Youth 7-12 $21.50, with Children 6 & under $14.50, and can be obtained by calling 525-9999.
To give you a taste, here’s an except from a few years ago of a performance of The Nutcracker by the Kirov Ballet in St. Petersburg, Russia.
A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.
We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
