savannas • Scale the Himilayas in Asia • Check out incredible insects from the Amazon • Come face-to-face with a great white shark under the ocean’s surface
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance A young lawyer travels west in search of new adventure,
only to find himself beaten and left for dead on the out- skirts of Twotrees by notorious outlaw Liberty Valance. Rescued and nursed back to health by a gunslinger, the lo- cal saloon owner and her barman, he makes bold steps to bring order to the lawless town. But when Valance returns to finish what he started, our unlikely hero is faced with the ultimate choice: to turn and run, or stand his ground? Te Man Who Shot Liberty Valance runs from October 14 to November 7 at the Manitoba Teatre Centre.

Butcher Who is the Butcher? On Christmas Eve, at a police sta-
tion, a mysterious old man is found wearing a foreign military uniform and a Santa hat, with a meat hook dangling around his neck and a note saying “Arrest me.” As a lawyer, a police officer, and a translator struggle to unravel the truth, they uncover a past that won’t stay buried, and a decades-old quest for justice that must be served. Haunted by events a world away, no one is who they seem to be. From November 18 to December 6 at the Prairie Teatre
