Seven things to do

Local lawyers raising the bar

Effervescent Elle Woods is set to take the Winnipeg stage. Nearly 30 Winnipeg lawyers are starring in Legally Blonde the Musical as a fundraiser for the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre and its programs. The musical, based on the novel by Amanda Brown and the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer motion picture, is playing April 24-27 at the Tom Hendry Warehouse and seats are selling quickly. The $100 tickets include a post-show wine and food reception and a $70 tax receipt. For tickets, visit

Happy Earth Day to you

Grab some garbage bags and gloves, and spend some time cleaning up your neighborhood for Earth Day on April 22. Even if you just do it for an hour, you'll be making a worthwhile contribution that you'll feel good about doing. Be sure to separate the garbage from recyclables as you go. If you're interested in doing more, try looking for clean-up events in your area. You can also check out the Earth Day Celebration on April 22 from 12-3 p.m. at FortWhyte Alive.

Today, a play

Take the kids to a play en franßais. Le Cercle Molière and le Thé¢tre du Grand Cercle present Souliers de sable at the Salle Pauline-Boutal (CCFM) today at 2 p.m. The production, written by Suzanne Lebeau, tells the whimsical story of Elise and Léo, who cascade through time. The French play is geared toward young kids and is accompanied by Mozart melodies and image projections. The approximate run time is one hour.


Make Sunday night a bingo night. Most bingo cards don't use dabbers anymore, so gather those old pennies for a stimulating night out. Bingo is a great game to keep your mind sharp. Plus the more cards you can handle, the better chance you have to win the big jackpot. Try out Maples Sunday night bingo at 434 Adsum Drive. Every week there is a guaranteed $200 jackpot.

Park it at Rodarama

Spend your weekend with a whole lot of wheels. The Manitoba Street Rod Association is holding its 14th annual Rodarama Car Show April 26-28 at the East End Arena on 517 Pandora Ave. Some of the attractions include free seminars with Driven specialist Joe Gibbs, a raffle for a rebuilt Chevy 350 engine, and a range of summer vehicles to check out that get driven daily. It costs $9 for admission (children under 12 free) and $30 to be part if the exhibit. Visit for more info.

Get inspired

Get in touch with your creative side and try some painting. I find painting to be a great outlet for relieving stress. Buy a simple paint kit at the dollar store, then choose your canvas -- you can paint on just about anything. Painting rocks or pottery is fun for beginners. If you're a painter who would like to brush up on your technique, Lesia Anna Art Studio offers art lessons in acrylic, watercolour and mixed media at The Forks at various times throughout the week. Register for your space in Lesia Anna Art Studio at The Forks Market.
