“All my friends are buying diamonds for their girls
And bringing children into this world
Signing their name to a home on land they’ve captured
Me? I’m still writing songs I’m scared you’ll hear someday” — Carver, Library Voices
The Curst may be the unluckiest band ever. They’re from small-town Saskatchewan, and they don’t play country. Their lead singer Merle is too neurotic to actually show anyone his songs. And it seems they’re being stalked by some kind of guardian angel gone really, really bad. Their life on the road is such a series of injuries, freak catastrophes, and grueling hours in a beat-up van, that they are starting to wonder whether it’s just time to quit.
But sometimes, just sometimes, they make magic together and fly. Maybe it’s all worth it?
Then good fortune shows its face. To The Curst. All they need to do is keep it together and avoid any dodgy angelic interference for a few more days. What. Could. Go. Wrong?
Written by national-award winner Kelley Jo Burke (The Selkie Wife) and featuring the songs of Saskatchewan’s indi-pop legends Library Voices (Denim on Denim, Summer of Lust), The Curst is a funny, loving rock-musical about why year after year, generation after generation, bands climb into bad vans, and head out on another gig…no matter the cost.

Jack and the End of the World
A Dancing Sky Theatre Collective Creation
December 2-18, 2022
The core of the original Prairie Panto gang gets back together to create one more rollicking
Christmas performance. All of the usual suspects will be present – Jack, The Widow Spriggins,
Fred, Ed, Monty and a menagerie of chickens, cows and other phantasmagorical rural beasts.
Come to laugh, sing and cheer with all of your family and friends.
**At this time we are strongly encouraging guests to wear masks inside the theatre. We will have some on hand if you forget yours.**

Dancing Sky Theatre is proud and honored to be making art on the great plains of North
America, also called Turtle Island and many other names. We strive to reflect rural realities in
an urban-centric culture. We recognize that we share this landscape with various indigenous
peoples (many signees to Treaty #6), members of The Metis Nation, several generations of
settlers, as well as new immigrants to these lands. We also seek to share the space with the
more than human world, both indigenous and immigrant. We aim to respect, and work in
harmony and balance with all the diversity of life that surrounds us.
