Introducing CRIPtonite, a new drag and burlesque show featuring disabled performers! Join us at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre on Saturday, March 25 at 8 PM as we celebrate the intersectionality of queer and disabled identities!


Featuring an incredible selection of disabled drag and burlesque performers, CRIPtonite will be a night to remember! Be sure to stay tuned as we announce the lineup for the show!


As their Emerging Company in Residence, we are thrilled to be working closely with Buddies to create a safe and inclusive space for queer disabled folks in our community!


This event will take place at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre and also livestreamed to enjoy from the comfort of your space! Please ensure you are booking tickets to the correct performance – either “In-person tickets” OR “Livestream ONLY”. Anyone arriving in person with livestream tickets may need to purchase additional door tickets, if available.


Tickets are Pay What You Can. ASL interpretation will be provided.


Patrons purchasing tickets at a higher price point can do so with the understanding that their ticket price is helping to subsidize the lower ticket prices, and in doing so, are making this show more accessible for others.


Personal Assistants and Support Persons accompanying a person with access needs will be admitted at no cost. If booking your tickets in advance, please indicate that this extra seat will be required.


Our staff have been monitoring provincial and city regulations, and have used this information to create a COVID-19 Safety Package for visitors, artists, and staff while at Buddies. Additionally, all guests will be required to wear a mask to attend Buddies events.
