The Princess Show

July 20 
– July 21, 2024
Don’t miss The Princess Show, the award-winning, fun, drag-infused technological marvel of a show, like nothing you’ve seen before.  

In this award-winning multimedia extravaganza, the bearded, sequinned wonder that is performance artist Princess Edward takes the audience into a world where anime heroes, bass guitarist rock stars and dance pop epics meld into one. On a quest to save her beloved Abel T. Suckizone from the mysterious villain known only as The Beast, Princess Edward puts it all on the line in this live-action-queer-anime-drag-adventure.

Featuring local drag performers within each performance, The Princess Show offers up a campy and visually stunning fantasy world for the audience where they can cheer Princess on as she tackles real problems.

In 2021, The Princess Show was awarded as a finalist for the Nova Scotia Masterworks Prize, the most prestigious arts award in the province.
