March 26, 2017March 28, 2017March 30, 2017. Women around the world found freedom in the skies during the romantic age of flight—although such freedom rarely meant they could make a career out of flying. Often working in anonymity, it took pioneering women more than 50 years to push open all of the career cockpit doors. Join us in exploring this exhilarating time in aviation history—from the first women who flew in war, to those who joined up with airlines back home, and those who blasted off to the stars as well. Guided tours are on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at 2:00 pm.. Event Details. Location: 958 Ferry Road, Hangar T-2, Winnipeg

The Birds

March 23, 2017 to March 25, 2017March 31, 2017 to April 1, 2017.

The characters share an abandoned rural cabin that they have each stumbled upon. They find relative sanctuary, but little peace or comfort while always beset by relentless attaching birds. Society is gone… no one is keeping score, so you can do what you want. Or can you? Conor McPherson's play leaves the audience with much to ponder.. Event Details.
