Brit's Picks: Top things to see and do this weekend

CBC's Arts Reporter Britainy Robinson makes her picks in Saskatoon and Regina.

Let Britainy Robinson help you fill your weekend with fun.

Britainy Robinson sorts through the entertainment options for Regina and Saskatoon.

Regina & Area

Ticket To Ride

The girl's still got it! Forget being an old married lady, there's still life out there for Becky Foster.

Becky's New Car is a play about Becky, a married woman who meets an attractive millionaire who thinks her husband is dead. Becky is suddenly faced with a fork in the road. 
It's the final weekend to catch Becky's New Car at Globe Theatre. (Globe Theatre)

Globe Theatre's main stage is set for this comedy and it's getting great reviews. A story all about marriage, fidelity and happiness waiting for you.

It's on now at Globe Theatre and runs until Sunday.

Coming Home

He's pretty much the biggest comedic talent to ever come out of Saskatchewan and this weekend, Brent Butt is coming home.

The Corner Gas star is hitting the road for the first time since his hit series debuted. 
Saskatchewan's favourite funnyman returns to the Regina stage Friday and Saturday night. (

Butt has been busy working on his first feature film, No Clue, that will be released March 7th.

As far as his stand-up goes, it's the same prairie-infused joking around that we love him for. 

Butt is bringing along a talented friend as well. Erica Sigurdson is an award winning comedy writer that has been featured on CBC Radio's The Debaters.

Catch the show Friday and Saturday night at the Casino Regina Show Lounge.

Love is in the Air

Do you have that special someone at home dying to do something romantic?

Why not head out to Wascana Park on Saturday evening for sleigh rides with your sweetheart. There will be horsd'oeuvres, cocktails and a performance by The Rusty Augers.

Tickets for this evening must be purchased in advance from the Royal Saskatchewan Museum.

Saskatoon & Area

Pet Project

Local bands come together to help the Saskatoon SPCA Friday night. (
Who doesn't like puppies, kitties and a little rock and roll.

Pet lovers unite for Rock the Shelter tonight. Three Saskatchewan bands will be lending their talents to raise money for the SPCA. Acts include Autopilot, Foam Lake and Raven She Hollers.

The music begins 8pm Friday night, tickets are $10 a piece at the O'Brian's Event Centre.

Welcome to the Jungle

If you miss rock and roll the way Axl used to do it, there's a pair of shows you'll want to check out in Saskatoon.

The Nightrain, a Guns N' Roses tribute band, is at it again this weekend.

They have become a favourite party band because they don't just play the tunes, they do it all — costumes, instruments, and of course, that certain swagger that Slash made famous.

The Nightrain will take the stage Friday and Saturday night at Bud's on Broadway.

Love-ly Time

Is it true love, or is it acting? When will I be loved? What about the art of love?

All these questions and more will be answered in a Valentine's themed production by Ball & Chain Theatre.

Love/Stories (or, But You Will Get Used To It) is opening this week and it's a series of vignettes all about l'amour.

The actors play multiple characters as the stories examine if there is such a thing as chemistry between two people.

The play is running at The Refinery this weekend and next weekend in Saskatoon.

The perfect date.

If you have an event you'd like included in Brit's Picks, send her all the details.
