I am VERY EXCITED to debut my first ever original musical Clitoria: A Sex-Positive Superhero! at the 2019 Toronto Fringe Festival! Rehearsals are underway, and I could not be more thrilled with the level of talent and sheer gusto I am seeing from the cast and crew. It is really inspiring!
Clitoria is the story of a sexually repressed high school science teacher who accidentally turns herself into the Vixen of Kink through a science experiment gone wrong. Chaos ensues as her newfound sexual liberation wreaks havoc on her square life with her square fiancé.
As often happens with the Fringe, the people involved end up working very hard and wearing many hats for little more than the sheer love of the game. The director Chris Wilson is also doing all the choreography, arranging, and musical directing, as well as producing. The stage manager Justine Cargo is handling everything from props, costumes, and set design to photoshop and fundraisers. The cast is bringing so much life to this script, I CAN’T EVEN. Thank you Matthew Bradley, Jada Rifkin, and Ursula Manifred.
GUELPH/K-W FOLK: On July 13—the last Saturday of the Fringe—the Guelph Arts Council is running a Toronto Fringe Adventure Bus taking folks to and from the festival for $60, which includes a drink at the Fringe tent. My show is at 10:15 pm that night, and you can take a bus home after. For more info on how to book your spot, check out the facebook event.
We are playing in the Theatre Passe Muraille Mainspace, and we have 185 seats to fill, people!! Tell your friends!
