Under The Harvest Moon

Now that summer’s finally here, the time is right for announcing the Harvest Moon Festival 2014 line-up! With 2014 being the International Year of the Family Farm, we’ll be celebrating the tradition of family farming in a big way. Surrounded by the beauty of the Pembina Valley, this unique three-day festival is a celebration of the harvest season, local food production, the area’s rich cultural heritage, and the bond between rural and urban folks. The town of Clearwater will once again host the 13th perennial festival September 12-14, 2014.

As always, UMFM's intrepid theater reporter Justin Olynyk, host of Play It Again (Wednesday nights at 8PM), and his team of reviewers will be in the middle of the action checking out some of the great plays and telling your all about them here!
Twenty-seven years ago, in the summer of 1988, the WINNIPEG FRINGE THEATRE FESTIVAL took its first bow in the Exchange District with five indoor venues, an outdoor stage and 47 performing companies. The festival has grown exponentially over the last quarter century and when the 2014 Fringe kicks off July 16, festival-goers will have the chance to experience the diversity of more than 170 performing companies from across Canada and around the world.
Comedy, drama, music, improv, dance – there’s something for everyone at the Winnipeg Fringe. With TICKETS starting at $10, it’s inexpensive to take a chance on an unknown play, or pick up tickets to the hot show. Advance tickets are on sale now at Fringe Central (MTC Box Office, 174 Market Ave., 204-942-6537). To see more theatre for less, a FREQUENT FRINGER PASS lets Fringe fans see 10 shows for $94. PROGRAMS are on sale now at Manitoba Liquor Marts, select Safeway stores, McNally Robinson Booksellers and the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre.
As an extra added bonus, this year's Fringe will also feature an amazing lineup of fantastic local music at the CUBE in Old Market Square, with shows running daily starting at noon and running hourly until 10PM! This year's diverse lineup features the likes of Federal Lights, the Noble Thiefs, Young Pixels, Cannon Bros, Slow Leaves, Yes We Mystic, Atlaas, Mise En Scene, Sc Mira, the Perpatrators and more! Guaranteed, there's no better place to spend these hot summer nights, kicking back and enjoying a beverage or two with your friends!

If that wasn't enough, you can also join CRUMBS and a rotating cast of improv veterans, actors and comedians for the freewheelin' comedy spectacle that can only be known as The Big Stupid Improv Show. This show is an improv jam show, meaning it's a show where improv players and actors and comedians from a bunch of other shows are thrown together onto a stage and forced to do a show together. Trust us, it's amazing!
The Big Stupid Improv show takes place at Venue #21 (MTYP, 2 Forks Market Road) at these times:

At The Edge Of Canada Special Presentation
on May 29,2014 by jared
An indepth conversation with one of the provinces best new talents!
Join host Liz Przybylski at 11am on Thursday, June 5th as she speaks with with one of Manitoba's most interesting up and coming songwriters, Leonard Sumner. Sumner is an Anishinaabe MC/Singer-Songwriter from the Little Saskatchewan First Nation located in Interlake Region of Manitoba. He provides perspective from a voice often unheard and over-looked in the traditional music communities: truthful, insightful, and providing a new sound straight from ‘the Rez’. His music is best described as a fusion of Hip-Hop, Country and Rhythm & Blues.
