The Princess Show 

May 28 9:00pm EST 

part of Canada Performs presented by National Arts Centre

Livestream on


In this award-winning multimedia extravaganza, the bearded sequinned wonder that is performance artist Princess Edward takes the audience into a world where anime heroes, bass guitarist rock stars and dance pop epics meld into one. On a quest to save her beloved Abel T. Suckizone from the mysterious villain known only as The Beast, Princess Edward puts it all on the line in this live-action-queer-anime-drag-adventure.

The Princess Show offers up a campy and visually stunning fantasy world for the audience where they can cheer Princess on as she tackles real problems.

FYI: This production involves some intense silliness, some f-bombs and one mention of a sexual act. But most people think it's fair game for all audiences and have come out smiling.

This is a FREE livestream performance of the show.
