One of the oldest standing theatres in the province has a busy season ahead, and folks in Swift Current can gear up for a variety of different events to come. 

Lyric Theatre truly is the city’s hub for the performing arts, featuring everything from comedy shows, to live music, to local youth, to spoken poetry. 

Artistic/Executive Director, Gordon McCall, has the inside scoop on all things to look forward to at the venue, starting with tonight’s Write Out Loud hosted by Bevann Fox.  

“You won’t want to miss this,” he said. “Her book, Genocidal Love: A Life After Residential School, has garnered many accolades.” 

Local musicians Paula McGuigan and Clare Meachem are set to warm up the crowd with a performance before Fox takes to the stage at 7 p.m. 

McCall added that a huge hit for the theatre is comedy duo, Jordan Welwood and Benji Rothman, making up The Yuk Yuks. 

“It’s a great time for us to have comedy and a lift in our spirits as winter sets in,” he said. 

For the skiers of Swift Current and surrounding areas, a showing of the Warren Miller film Daymaker is set for the evening of December 22. 

McCall emphasizes that anyone with the slightest interest in skiing won’t want to miss it.  

“We are the only place presenting it as of this moment between Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta,” he said earlier this month. “It's the most spectacular photography you’ve ever seen.”
