Show Descriptions


Manitoba Skies

Take a guided tour of the night sky and discover current constellations, planets, and celestial events currently visible in Manitoba skies. The show is presented live by Planetarium Science Communicators and highlights the latest discoveries.

 

In My Backyard with Fred Penner 

A classic returns! Join Winnipeg’s best-known children’s entertainer, Fred Penner, as he explores things large and small, from the colors of the rainbow to the reasons for the seasons. The show has been completely re-imagined for the DIGISTAR full-dome video system. Young scientists are encouraged to sing and participate while learning about the planets, constellations, meteors, the moon, and more. Recommended for children ages 4-7.

 

 

 

Season of LightSeason of Light

Explore winter solstice tales and traditions from around the world and through the ages, all of which involve lighting up the winter season — from the burning Yule log, sparkling Christmas tree lights and candles in windows, to the lighting of luminaries in the American Southwest and the traditional ritual of the Hanukkah Menorah. The show also recounts the historical religious and cultural rituals practiced during the time of winter solstice — not only Christian and Jewish, but also Celtic, Nordic, Roman, Irish, Mexican and Hopi. This 35-minute show is designed for general audiences and includes a live segment on the current night sky.

 

The Alien Who Stole Christmas

It’s Christmas Eve and Santa’s in a space ship instead of a sleigh!  Will Christmas ever be the same again?  Tour winter’s evening sky and then join jolly ol’ Santa and concerned alien, Mr. Freep, as they explore the solar system’s planets and meet the Christmas Eve needs of their fictitious inhabitants. This 30 minute show is designed for families with young children.

 

 

 

 

Zula Patrol: Down To Earth

The zany cast of Zula Patrol stop a notorious polluter – and also learn about the formation of our planet and the evolution of its many life forms. The Zula Patrol: Down to Earth is based on the award-winning TV series, The Zula Patrol, now reaching 300 million households worldwide. This 35-minute show is designed for families with younger children and includes a short introduction to the current night sky.
