Canadian Badlands Canadian Badlands

This is the home where the dinosaurs roamed. It’s still epic. Get ready to explore some remarkable rock formations and fossil beds. It’s enough to transport you to another time. Definitely take your photo with a towering hoodoo in a prehistoric glacial valley on horseback. ● Get lost: Canadian Badlands hiking is otherworldly. Seriously. Grab a map, then get yourself to Horseshoe Canyon. You’ve never seen anything like this. ● Dinosaurs: As if you could visit the Badlands without a trip to the cretaceous period. In addition to the Royal Tyrell Museum, try the Trail of the Fossil Hunters, an easy walk to the site of a 1913 fossil dig.

Ms. Sugarcoat

Lethbridge, Alberta
2018-02-21 to 2018-02-24 MST

She’ssss back!!! We first met Ms. Sugarcoat at the Lethbridge Fringe Festival. New West liked her so much; we’ve asked her back. Ms. Sugarcoat is a hilarious original show written and performed by Alice Nelson. Alice has worked for New West in the past and we are thrilled to have her on the New West stage. Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, Ms. Sugarcoat is eager to mold the young minds of the future. But university textbooks didn’t prepare her for helicopter parents, entitled high-needs students, and political correctness at the cost of telling the truth. When Pat the Beaver shows up, Ms. Sugarcoat delicately controlled world threatens to implode.
