E.A. Rawlinson Centre
February in Prince Albert will be an exciting month with Winter Festival and the Saskatchewan Winter Games. The E. A. Rawlinson Centre will offer many entertainment opportunities as well. Odyssey Productions presents Thirty-Nine Steps on Feb. 6, 7 and 8. Although the play has only four actors, there are more than 150 zany characters. The play is fast paced and packed with nonstop laughs.
A highlight of February is the first concert in the E.A. Rawlinson Centre’s Spotlight on Local Talent series. Many local artists that perform across the province and even across the country have produced CDs and are building names for themselves.
The E. A. Rawlinson Centre is happy to bring such artists to our stage and to provide an opportunity that will give added momentum to their musical careers. The E.A. Rawlinson Centre has a built a bonus system for the Spotlight on Local Talent performers. In addition to their artist fee, they will be given a bonus if their ticket sales go beyond a pre-determined amount. Therefore selling a lot of tickets will be mutually beneficial to the E.A. Rawlinson Centre and the artist.
The E. A. Rawlinson Centre is proud to present our first Spotlight artist, Constant Reminder, who will perform on Feb. 21 at 7:30 p.m. This band has been getting a lot of attention around the province. They have performed in Prince Albert for many events over the years, including their most recent performances in the E.A. Rawlinson Centre at Evergreen in November and Tapestrama in September. Constant Reminder is a band made up of four brothers from the James Smith First Nation near Melfort. They are passionate about their music and spend a lot of time practising.
They are self-taught musicians who have listened to and been influenced by music greats spanning many genres. Their musical influences from the rock, country and blues genres show through in their performances. They perform covers as well as their original music. Despite their youth, Constant Reminder has to their credit four albums and is currently working on their fifth. The fourth CD is a collection of their original music.
They have performed across the province and beyond, at Telemiracle and have opened for Big Sugar last summer in La Ronge. This concert is very affordable at $20 total cost for adults and $12.64 for youth. Come out and support local talent. You won’t be disappointed!
