Every year the Manitoba Arts Network brings some of the best Canadian talent in music, dance, theatre, visual, and literary arts together in a different Manitoba community in a conference called Manitoba Showcase. We are very excited that we were chosen to be a partner in this event that runs from Thursday, October 25 to Sunday, October 28 in Portage la Prairie. Manitoba Showcase gives conference delegates the opportunity to experience performances, professional development workshops, visual art exhibits, literary readings and networking.  Delegates are also able to preview performers they may want to bring to their community during the upcoming season. 


For a schedule of Manitoba Showcase events, please visit https://manitobaartsnetwork.ca/schedule/.


You can play a role in who will perform at the Glesby for our upcoming season. By attending one or more of the three performance showcases that will happen on October 26 and 27, you will be able to see the amazing talent that may come to our community. Each showcase has five acts, and audience members can provide input on which acts they would like to see provide a longer performance in the future. Tickets for each showcase are $20. Buy tickets at the Glesby box office or by calling 204-239-4848.
