2023/24 Season

Welcome to our milestone 45th anniversary season, offering a dynamic slate of productions and programming. The 2023/24 season revives an epic from the queer canon, stages two works developed at Buddies, and welcomes two companies bringing in shows from the Prairies. The mainstage season is accompanied by festivals, guest company productions, and a special 45th anniversary presentation series, alongside opportunities for artistic development, celebration, and creative community exchange.

“Welcome to our 45th season. Our 2023/24 programming offers moments of reflection, celebration, and in some instances destruction as we look back to honour our queer histories and look ahead to forge new paths for our queer future. Familiar and new partnerships animate our season, showcasing not only the wealth of queer talent in Toronto but also highlighting enthralling stories and performance from across Canada.”

Daniel Carter
Managing Director

This season, each of our mainstage shows features tiered ticket pricing, meaning you get to choose how much you pay, starting at $10. If cost is a barrier, this is your chance to get an affordable ticket. If you are able to pay more, this is your change to increase your support for the work onstage and ensure it stays affordable for those who need it. Plus, you can accrue discounts throughout the season with our Buddies Rewards program.
