Michael Jackson in Back From The Future Its the year 2015 and something is amiss. When Marty

and Doc travelled to 2015 from 1985, things appeared to be quite different than they are now. The secret to correcting the time-line may lie in the sequined glove hand of the King of Pop. The only trouble is Doc and Marty will have to travel back through time to meet him. The show is on at Celebration Dinner Theatre at 1824 Pembina Highway and runs until January 23. See www. for details.

Blind Tiger Tere’s a secret hidden behind the alabaster walls of

South Osborne’s Blind Tiger. What will be by day a neigh- bourhood coffee haunt, bringing rich roasts from boutique traders will by night be a dimly lit lair of exposed brick, rich colours, and ubiquitous tastes. Only whispered about by those in the know,

what waits behind the wal ls is something that ’s not meant to be found, but to be stumbled upon by those looking for a place of subversion and seclusion. Visit them at 725 Osborne or find out more at

Illusionist Darcy Oake Today, Darcy proudly carries on the tradition of such

Nutcracker When midnight strikes, young Clara’s enchanted Christ-

mas gift leads her into a wondrous world… with the valiant Nutcracker at her side, Clara defeats the Mouse King and his army of mice, and journeys to the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets. What could be more fun for the family than to join young Clara’s Christmas fantasy, where toys come to life, the Sugar Plum Fairy spreads her magic, mis- chievous Filbert the Bear steals the Christmas pudding and where Hazel the Polar Bear and her twelve furry polar cubs will surely warm your heart. A holiday classic for the whole family! Being performed at the Centennial Concert Hall from December 19 to December 28, tickets and additional info can be found at
