One more week in December has gone by and we’re now only three weeks away from Christmas! I hope everyone is getting their shopping done! I’m very behind this year, so the stress is mounting, but who has time to shop when there are so many events going on?
Let’s start this week’s post off with theatre: Cottagers and Indians continues, now in its third week at the GCTC ,ending December 15th. At the Gladstone, Casablanca: The Radio Show continues, now in its second week. For concerts, you’ll find the Born Ruffians at the Bronson Centre on Friday night, Ambush at the Rideau Carleton Raceway Friday and Saturday nights, the Biggs and Barr Holiday Giv’er with Finger Eleven on Saturday night at the Bronson Centre, and finally, Serena Ryder is performing Sunday at the NAC.
The Sens are back in town this week after their western road trip. Monday night, they are hosting the Boston Bruins, and Saturday afternoon, the Columbus Blue Jackets are in town. The Ottawa 67’s also have two afternoon games this weekend with the Barrie Colts visiting Saturday, and the Niagara Ice Dogs are here Sunday. On Friday night, there’s a great opportunity to see some of your favourite NHL alumni, such as Walter Gretzky, Wendel Clark, Owen Nolan, Curtis Joseph, Theo Fleury and many more, as they take on the Ottawa Police All-Stars at TD Place. Tickets are still available so come out and support the special Olympics!

I attended Christmas Glow at the EY Centre on Thursday night. This event will be running pretty much daily until January 4th and is so much fun for visitors of all ages!! Make sure you get out and see this fantastic event. You can read my review here.
I also attended Mamma Mia! by Suzart Productions at Meridian Theatres @ Centrepointe on Saturday night. It was incredible, and definitely shows that Suzart is willing to step up and make some improvements on other shows, namely the technical aspects such as sound quality, and stage sets. They’ve always had really highly talented people in their shows, and now the bar has been risen for their next, and future shows! Check out the review here!
