Hi!

We're Geekenders. We're based in Vancouver, BC and we create dynamic geeky theatre by putting a new spin on pop culture classics that we love. We are dedicated to diversity, casting actors of colour, engaging in finding more spaces for women, and casting LGBT+ actors. We are dedicated to producing shows that will encourage people who haven't thought to explore theatre before to come out to experience musicals, burlesque shows, and plays. We also have a mentorship program wherein we encourage performers with no experience to work alongside professionals and gain some experience!

Some of our production have included Portal 2: The (Unauthorized) Musical, The Force is Shakin', How I Met My Mother: A Back to the Future Parody Musical, and Jurassic Parody: The Musical. We release 95% of our productions on youtube in their entirety.

We have tons of things we're working on, all the time. And as always, we're trying to pay artists as much as we can. Our goal is to be the highest-paying semi-professional theatre company in Canada.

All of the money that goes into funding our shows comes out of our own pockets! Because we try to keep ticket prices low and always make sure our performers get paid, we often lose money even on our very successful shows. 

Anything you donate to us will go directly towards costumes, sets, rehearsal spaces, SOCAN fees, theatre rentals, and everything that makes theatre a labour of love rather than a viable career move. 

Thanks so much; we have years' worth of ideas, we just want to be able to make them happen!

Love, 

Geekenders
