Forget the French horn leave the trumpet at the door, this is one music concert where instruments are not required!

Saskatoon 

Old Elephant, New Mission

It's a tradition that many families enjoy this time of year.

Children's performer Brenda Baker is once again staging 'The Old Elephant's' Christmas' with the help of her friends in the Saskatoon music community.

The show is the same interactive, fun filled performance but this year the show has special meaning.

There's no charge for this performance and in lieu of tickets donations will be collected for the Tori Slade Foundation.

Tori was Brenda's daughter who passed away in 2008.

The brand new fund is intended to help kids with intellectual disabilities take part in the arts.

It's a great cause and a great show happening at Grosvenor Park United Church Sunday afternoon.

This is a show with sensibilities much like Cirque Du Soleil.

It's been performed all over the world and now the clowning show is part of the Persephone Theatre Youth Series.

I realize I'm taking a bit of liberty with this one cause it's not ON the weekend but it's just too good to miss.

You have several chances to see the show Monday and Tuesday at the Broadway Theatre.
