Another week has passed and it’s time again for your weekly weekender post. This gloomy week has left me itching for some fun things to do this weekend. Lately I’ve been really wanting to head out for a night at the theatre, my ultimate date night. There’s something about those lights, the stage and the live performance that always leaves me feeling as happy and complete (it might be that I’m missing my former university days as a stage manager). Anyways, this weekend there are plenty of options for me or any theatre fanatic to chose from. And don’t worry, I have also included some fun festivals to hit up!
The Lion King
Ever since my parents came back from New York raving about this production I have been dying to see it. Not only because it is one of my favourite Disney movies but because I have heard such wonders of the consumes, the music and the scenography. Tickets for this show are not cheap, as it is to be expected with broadway productions, ranging from $64 to $205. It runs until June 5th so there’s plenty of time to save some money and surprise your family and loved one with tickets. However don’t wait too long, as they are sure to sell out fast!

Stars on Ice
If you’re looking for another show to see this weekend, the maybe this is it. Stars on Ice showcases the best figure skaters that Canada has to offer straight out of Sochi! If you followed the Olympics at all this year you’ll be thrilled to know that you can now see Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir, Patrick Chan as well as all-time favourites Joannie Rochette and Kurt Browning. This is a show that will wow fans and non-fans alike! Tickets for the show, which will be performed at the Air Canada Centre, can be found at http://www.starsonice.ca/welcome.html
Toronto Wing Festival
Are you a wing lover? Then this event will be your heaven! The 3rd annual Toronto Wing Festival will be taking place this Sunday, May 4th from 1:30 until 5pm at Daniel’s Spectrum. This is such a popular event that they had sold out weeks ago, by luckily for you they have added a second batch of tickets. Make it a family day, grab some friends or call up your boyfriend and head down to this tasty and messy festival http://torontowingfestival.com
