Here’s our roundup of the shows worth seeing:

The party’s at the Segal

Prom Queen

Prom Queen: The Musical makes its World Premiere at the Segal Centre on Thursday, October 27th. A new mega musical based on the true story of Marc Hall, the small-town teenager who just wanted to take his boyfriend to prom, but ended up taking the Catholic School Board to court – all in the name of love! TICKETS ($32 – 65)

The Refugee Hotel presented by the Teesri Duniya Theatre Company also begins performances at the Segal Centre on Wednesday, October 26th. A dark comedy about exile, love and the settlement experience, the play chronicles the true story of hundreds of thousands of Chileans who resettled across Canada. TICKETS ($18 – 22)

It’s now or never


Chlorine presented by creature/creature at the Centaur Theatre is a ballet-within-a-play and bittersweet coming-of-age story about a boy-next-door named Nathan and the deep bond he forms with his tetraplegic neighbour, Sarah. Final performance on Saturday, October 29th. TICKETS ($25 – 28)

Mary Stuart presented at Studio Jean-Valcourt du Conservatoire is an experimental, feminist adaptation of Maria Stuart by Friedrich Schiller, highlighting the toxic masculinity of the patriarchal aides of Queen Elizabeth and would be-saviors of Mary Stuart.
