Spring One Act Cabaret

Tonight and Saturday night Regina Little Theatre is presenting this biannual fundraiser which also is held in the fall. There are four one-act plays on the bill. Here’s a brief synopsis of each:

Chemistry Lessons, a farce by George Freek about a chemistry teacher who experiences some romantic bumps on the road to the altar; Faugh, a comedy by Jerome McDonough about a group of co-habiting Fine Arts students; a comedy by the Frantics called Her First Period in which a father provides cell phone advice at a bus stop to his daughter about what she needs to do deal with the onset of menarche; and a drama by Jennifer Fell Hayes called Nothing In Common about a pregnant teenage girl and an older woman who is desperate to adopt the baby.

The cabaret is being held at the Regina Performing Arts Centre, and begins each night with food and drink service at 6:30 p.m., with the plays to follow at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $12.50 and can be obtained by calling 306-779-2277.

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.
