Viva la GTNT and the Rez Christmas!
- EFN Staff | December 11, 2017
Christmas has officially started. Once you go see the Gordon Tootoosis Nikaniwin Theatre Company’s annual Rez Christmas play, the season begins. This year they reprised the Vegas Vacation. Zula, Clare and Sihkos are determined to have a Christmas vacation this year and head off to Vegas to hopefully catch a glimpse of Tom Jones and play the biggest game of bingo ever. This show is a hilarious comedy and it is a must—see during the Christmas Season.
A great cast including Mitchell Poundmaker, Corey Dallas Standing, Allana Dorian and Dalton Lightfoot brings the story to life with physical and over the top comedy that hits you right in the gut…mostly it hurts because you are laughing. The troupe is touring the province north to south and it included a sold out run at the Broadway in Saskatoon.
No one leaves that play without a smile on their face and some perspective on live, love and relationships. Sure, those characters fight and tease each other, but it is all filled with love, just like in a real family. The gift of laughter these actors give us always send people into the Christmas season in the right frame of mind. Curtis Peeteetuce, the brilliant playwright behind the Rez Christmas series should be repeatedly thanked for sharing the gift of his genius and wit with us each Yule Tide season.
