QueerCab

March 1 // 8:30pm // FREE

March’s QueerCab theme is MATTRESS SPRINGS:

With the Month of March comes to possibility of SPRING….. we never quite know when that first gust of spring air will blow. One thing is sure though, spring brings a sense of ‘out with the old, in with the new’. We see this everywhere! People buy new clothes, a lot of people move in spring, break up in spring, start dating new people…… the list goes on and on.

How do we honour what’s past? How do we welcome the new?

Come show it, sing it, dance it, bring it! The stage is yours at Queer Cab.

QueerCab is our monthly youth open mic.  Anyone can attend and support, but the stage is reserved for queer and trans* identified youth age 25 and under to perform. We give you 5 minutes. We’ve got a bare stage, a microphone, a cd player, a video projector and a piano – and you’ve got the talent! Come show us what you can do.

Every month is a different show, depending on what you bring to it. Music, spoken word, monologues, dance, drag, songs, scenes, stand-up, burlesque, videos, magic tricks, performance art, juggling, rants…we’ve seen it all at QueerCab. QueerCab is a great place to try out something new, showcase your stuff, get inspired, and to meet other young queer artists.

The Queer Youth Arts Program

Something for queer youth happens every Wednesday night at Buddies. Click here to learn more.

Buddies in Bad Times Theatre is Toronto’s leading destination for alternative theatre and a world leader in developing queer voices and stories for the stage. Buddies in Bad Times’ Youth Program engages queer youth and supports the development of early-in-craft artistic voices. We create artistic space for all youth and strive to celebrate, cultivate, and prioritize the diversity of Toronto’s queer community by encouraging the development of BIPOC queer voices inclusively. We work with 2-Spirit, queer, trans, and gender variant youth who have an interest in theatre, performance, and the creative process, and may have no prior theatre experience.
