Theatre New Brunswick and the Charlotte Street Arts Centre help kickoff Fredericton’s 2019 Pride Week celebrations with a special performance of The Princess Show, an original production by Halifax-based theatre collective, Heist.
Just days after the NotaBle Act Theatre Festival wraps up and Fredericton’s official Pride Week celebrations begin, Theatre New Brunswick and the Charlotte Street Arts Centre will present a fitting combination that lands somewhere in the middle of both these pillar community events with The Princess Show.
Best described as a live-action-queer-anime-drag-adventure, The Princess Show was created by a pair of Halifax-based multidisciplinary artists and performers: Aaron Collier (Princess Edward) and Richie Wilcox (Abel T. Suckizone).
The event will take place on August 8 at the Charlotte Street Arts Centre beginning with a cocktail hour at 7 p.m. featuring music by DJ Douvet prior to the 8 p.m. performance.
Guests will follow the bearded, sequined-wonder Princess Edward on a quest to save her beloved Abel T. Suckizone from the mysterious villain. Featuring local drag performers within the 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.
