Queer Songbook Orchestra

The West End Cultural Centre in partnership with Pride Winnipeg is thrilled to present the Queer Songbook Orchestra on October 6th.

The Queer Songbook Orchestra are a Toronto based 12-piece chamber pop ensemble, dedicated to exploring and uplifting queer narrative in pop music.  With the queer lens intact they are looking through the last century of popular music and bringing forward obscured LGBTQ2S historical narratives, as well as the personal stories of members of the community and the songs connected to them.

Tickets are $15 and available at Ticketfly: https://www.ticketfly.com/search/?q=West+End+Cultural+Centre

The Elephant Girls – Take 2!!

★★★★★“utterly entrancing” – Winnipeg Free Press
IT’S BACK! The 100% sold-out hit of Fringe 2016 and 2018, revised and expanded  The Elephant Girls runs Sept 20-22, 7 pm at the Tom Hendry Warehouse, as part of the Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival Fundraiser!
Clever, devious and daring, they stole from the rich and gave to themselves. The riveting story of Britain’s most notorious all-female gang is told by Maggie Hale – their suit-wearing, bloody-knuckled, girl-chasing “enforcer.” You won’t be able to look away, but how much do you want to hear?
Tickets are $18, $15 for students (with valid ID), $30 (for both shows on same day, excludes student discount). Tickets on sale August 29. To purchase, visit the Royal MTC Box Office (174 Market Ave) or call 204 942 6537.
