The Riot Grrrls Revue presents: A Super Queer Wedding Show

May 25 @ 6:30 PM - 10:00 PM

The Riot Grrrls Revue is inviting you to attend our immersive dinner theatre event – a Super Queer Wedding! People who buy tickets will be attending as “guests” but no audience participation is required. This is a heart-warming, queer feminist show that deconstructs a lot of aspects of traditional wedding ceremonies. And is also going to be a LOT of fun!

DRESS UP LIKE YOU’RE ATTENDING A WEIRD AND WONDERFUL WEDDING – BECAUSE YOU ARE!

Vegan dinner available for purchase – provided by Bunny’s Catering. Reach out to us if you need a free meal ticket ♥

Reception (DJ Dance Party) at 10pm.

We invite people of all genders and sexualities and from all walks of life to join us and connect with us – bring your parent(s), bring your partner(s), come alone. Come be part of the supportive and loving feminist energy that we all need!

Content warning: Our shows in general DO explore heavy topics like misogyny and colonialism. This isn’t one of our heavy shows per se, but we empower people to take care of themselves by not attending if they feel like it will be too much or if they are easily offended.

We acknowledge with great respect the Lkwungen-speaking peoples on whose traditional territory this event is being held, and the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.

FAQs

Whyyy would you host an event at the VEC – they have a long flight of stairs?!?!?

There are a lot of different barriers to accessibility, and finances are a major one for us. Because we want to continue to offer an unlimited number of financially assisted tickets and pay our performers properly, pay an ASL interpreter, pay our Consent Captain, buy local, etc. – we had to take the VEC up on their offer of a discounted rate otherwise we simply couldn’t afford to put on more shows. We’re trying to be as supportive of everyone and their needs as we can, and we are really sorry to anyone adversly affected by this decision 🙁

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

19+ event, ID required at the door.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Reach out to us via email: riotgrrrlsburlesquerevue@gmail.com

What’s the refund policy?

No refunds unfortunately, because of our Eventbrite settings. You’re more than welcome to sell your ticket though! They will just have to let the door person know the name the ticket was originally purchased under.
