One of the things I enjoy most about the holiday season is seeing all the holiday plays! Alberta Theatre Projects’ latest show comes from Calgary’s very own Rebecca Northan, and her take on the classic fairytale of Cinderella set in modern-day Calgary. Now how could that not be a recipe for mirth and merriment?  Slipper: A Distincly Calgarian Cinderella Story is another chapter in the hilarious Northan repertoire filled with charm and wit about life in Calgary. The show is running until December 31st at the Martha Cohen Theatre.

Calgary’s Comic Expo is ready for its 11th year of action and there will be tons of amazing people and things to check out. One event that I think everyone should go to is the Expo’s collab with Wordfest featuring the ultimate lady nerd author, Sam Maggs. Her book, The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy, is an amazing tutorial to help all girl geeks enjoy and experience geek culture.
