A princess, riddles, antiques sale and skinny teeth: What to do in Calgary this weekend

It's another busy week for arts and entertainment in and around Calgary and The Homestretch's Susan Holzman has some great picks for you.

A princess and riddles

Calgary Opera presents Turandot starting this Saturday with performances into next week. It's a story of a princess who challenges her suitors to answer riddles but she soon meets her match.

Turandot runs April 1, 5 and 7 at the Jubilee Auditorium and it starts at 7:30 p.m.

Skinny Teeth

Looking to take advantage of nice weather and dry roads to get out of town?

Rosebud, about a 90-minute drive from Calgary, is presenting The Skin of Our Teeth at the Rosebud Theatre starting Friday.

The production runs until June 3 and all the information you need can be found right here.

Doc Soup series

With the summer blockbuster season fast approaching, if you are interested in something a little different, and Doc Soup might just be able to help you out. Black Code is a documentary based on the book looking at the impact the internet has on privacy, activism and free speech.

Black Code runs April 5 at 7 p.m.

Check this out for more details.

Family affair

Heritage Park is holding a vintage and antiques sale starting this weekend. It's a twice-a-year thing where the park chooses items that aren't being used and put them up for sale. You can find some real treasures: jewelry, china, toys, furniture and more. The funds raised all go toward the ongoing restoration efforts and education programs at the park.

The park's heirloom program also accepts donations, so if you had some antiques or collectables you'd like to purge, they'd be happy to take them.

The Heritage Park Vintage & Antiques Sale runs April 1 to 9 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Here is more information.


A new documentary play looks at the future of our natural resources. Annabel Soutar's The Watershed "captures Canada in a moment of acute political reflection in an increasingly polarized landscape."

It's on now and runs through April 1 at Theatre Junction Grand.

All the details can be found right here.
