5 Things To Do: March 18 to 22

This week, check out some musical and theatrical classics, and tap your toes to some bluegrass.


Watch a couple deal with family, hope and change 

Shadow Theatre presents Lungs, a tale about a couple thinking of having a baby amid a warming and tumultuous world. It explores betrayal, happenstance and the terrible pain that you can only cause the people you love. The production runs March 13 to 31.

Shadow Theatre, 10329 83 Ave., 780-434-5564, shadowtheatre.com

Listen to a uniquely silent theatrical gem

Watch six characters deal with enforced silence on a healing retreat in Small Mouth Sounds, March 14 to 24 at the Roxy Theatre. A challenge for actors and audience alike, characters must fumble forward and look for answers — minus words. It’s a humourous and touching journey without a roadmap.
