In order to find our performers for their second half performance (and our group grande finale) – you are going to have to go on a little hunt. We’ve sent our performers to (virtually) hang out at some of our favorite venues. Have a listen to the video clues and open a new tab on your computer to search for websites. If you know the Toronto queer performance scene – your search should be easy! If not, never fear – a little googling should lead you! Once you’ve hit the website of the venue Stella is talking about, you will see an icon of the missing performer (you may need to do a little searching!) click the icon to bring you back to our stage for their second performance.
HINT: Go back to the cabaret stage to load the next clues.
Once you’ve found all four performers, you will also get our GRAND FINALE!
Think of it as a scavenger hunt around some of the most important and supportive queer and performance venues in Toronto.
We invite you to poke around the website of our chosen venues. Help them out in any way you can! Buy something for the holidays, keep them in mind for virtual bookings or for when we can meet in person again. Even shout out your favorite memory at one of the venues on social media. Anything helps to keep these important places alive.
Need help finding our performers? Tag us on instagram or facebook or tweet at Stella for more clues!
Thank you for playing! Enjoy the show!
