So you want to enjoy some fantastic music and hilarious comedy? You want to get awesome prizes for a steal of a deal? You want to support local emerging theatre and women in fighting roles? Look no further!

On August 25th, 2017, Wunderdog Theatre is hosting an open mic fundraiser for our Fringe show, I Am For You, by Mieko Ouchi.

We’ll be featuring a host of local performers, comedians and musicians including:
– Georgia Johnson
– Andrew Lynch
– Tina Darakjian
– Maddy Kelly
– UBC Improv
– Sam Ciampolillo
– Shakespeare Trivia

We’ll have a raffle with tons of awesome prizes such as:
– A portrait session with Jayda Paige Photography
– A comissioned painting
– A handmade piece of local jewellery by Ingrid Valou
– A couple 1 hour nutrition coaching sessions with Black Dog Strength and Nutrition

A bit about the show:
“Wouldn’t it be cool, if for once, the girls got the swords? If they got the big fight?”
It’s the girls’ turn to fight things out. And they’re not pulling any punches. Mieko Ouchi’s play, dedicated to “all the girls who have ever stood on the sidelines watching a fight call”, examines the taboo topic of physical violence in young women and teaches the importance of control and perspective. Lainie and Mariam are high school students who have it out for each other. When newly appointed drama student teacher Caddell Morris finds them fist fighting after school, he offers an unexpected form of discipline. But will training the girls in stage combat allow them to settle their differences? Or will Caddell’s instruction give them the tools for a deadlier fight?Wunderdog Theatre’s performance features the skills of many female theatre practitioners such as director Shelby Bushell, fight choreographer Sylvie La Riviere, actor combatant Phay Gagnon, and performer Amelia Ross.
