An English adaptation of one of the most produced Quebecois plays of all time, Theatre Calgary presents Sisters: The Belle Soeurs Musical. It tells the story of a Montreal woman who wins the jackpot consisting of one million trading stamps.

The show runs at Theatre Calgary now through Nov. 4.

Whose Live Anyway?
Grey Eagle Resort & Casino presents Whose Live Anyway. It's based on the improv comedy show Whose Line is It Anyway. I went a few years ago and it was a lot of fun, although, it is one of those situations where you're afraid to make eye contact just in case you get pulled up on stage.
The cast includes Greg Proops and Ryan Stiles and the show is on Friday at the Grey Eagle Resort and Casino at 8 p.m.
More information is right here.
Standup comedy about something
Jerry Seinfeld is coming to Calgary. The driving force behind the hit 1990s comedy series is performing four shows at the Jubilee Auditorium on Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m.

It's being held at the Crescent Point Regional Field House on Saturday.
The venue can hold 2,200 people and you can buy tickets at the door but organizers recommend buying your tickets online in advance
