Things Are Looking Up For The Indian Head Opera House

301504_10200960827601906_763206368_nIt’s been a long haul, but following many months of fundraising events featuring Belle Plaine, Andy Shauf, Rah Rah, and others, it looks like the community of Indian Head is going to save its 110 year-old theatre. Indian Head Theatre and Community Arts Inc. announced today that they’ve successfully purchased the Indian Head Opera House (currently the Nite Hawk Theatre) in Indian Head.

If all goes according to plan, the non-profit group will take possession of the theatre on February 15 – so Regina fans of performing art and cinema can look forward to many trips to “the Head”, as it’s affectionately known, for years to come.

If you’re up early tomorrow, tune into CBC’s Morning Edition to hear Indian Head Theatre and Community Arts Inc’s Tara Leigh Heslip chat with host Sheila Coles about how things are developing.

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.
