Birdie owns a very successful saloon, but realizes that something’s missing in her life: a man. But who will she choose in a town full of layabouts and barrel-scrapings? B. Bertram “Bighorn” Smith owns all the other saloons in town and sets his sights on Birdie’s saloon, deciding to acquire it through romance, much to the dismay of town constable Ackers and Birdie’s bar girls, Blanche, Mona, and Peaches, who will be unemployed if Smith’s plan succeeds. In an attempt to thwart Smith’s plans, they try to give him some competition, but complications arise and hilarity ensues. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., dinner at 7 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets at Uniglobe Travel.

Visual Arts

kitimat museum and Archives presents “The Living North - Where I Live: The Art of Summer Breeze” until Feb. 5. About her artwork, Breeze says “If I had one word to describe my art it would be ‘colourful,’ I love colour and the emotions it can inspire. I like to say that I paint landscapes as portraits, concentrating on the perfect imperfections, which are in essence, nature. When I look at nature I not only see the beauty of its surface, but more importantly I see the overlooked beauty of the shapes and lines and colours that, when added together, create works of art.” The museum is open Monday to Thursday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Saturday 12 p.m. – 4 p.m.
