Winnipeg’s fall arts season is now in full swing, with a full slate of concerts, theatrical productions and other programming going on all over town.

Here’s a look at this week’s Fast Four arts and entertainment highlights.

Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet (as it now likes to call itself) is offering up the world premiere production of Lila York’s choreographic adaptation of the Margaret Atwood novel The Handmaid’s Tale, beginning Weds., Oct. 16 at the Centennial Concert Hall.

The ballet will run five times — at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 16, 17, 18 and 19 and at 2 p.m. on Sun., Oct. 20.

See rwb.org for ticket info and more details.

There’s still time to see zone41 theatre and Theatre Projects Manitoba’s co-production of The Miser of Middlegate, written by Winnipegger Carolyn Gray.
An upstairs-downstairs comedy in the longstanding farcical tradition, the play stars Nicholas Rice in the titular role and runs until Oct. 13 at the Asper Centre of Theatre and Film at the University of Winnipeg.
See theatreprojectsmanitoba.ca for ticket information and showtimes.

The Winnipeg Jewish Theatre’s playbill has been exceptional during the tenure of artistic director Michael Nathanson, so it’s likely a good call to catch Good Intentions, written by Winnipegger Ginny Collins, during its Oct. 9-20 run at the Berney Theatre.

Directed by Nathanson, Collins’ play tells the story of a doctor who goes to Africa to run a hospital but finds that things go awry.

See wjt.ca for ticket info and showtimes.

The Arthritis Society - Manitoba Division throws its annual Sex and the City fundraiser on Oct. 16 at the Metropolitan Entertainment Centre, 281 Donald St. It’ll run from 6 to 10:30 p.m. and will feature a Middle Eastern themed-menu, Sex and the City martinis and a special screening of the movie Sex and the City 2.

See mb.arthritis.ca for more details.
