The Geekenders Present: Disney Big Band Burlesque

The Geekenders Present: Disney Big Band Burlesque

8:00pm - Friday, Nov 30, 2018

Forget about your worries and your cares down at the Rio Theatre, where Vancouver's favourite "nerdlesque" troupe the Geekenders will be performing shining, shimmering, and altogether splendid numbers from all favourite childhood Disney movies. Come watch us Hakuna our Tatas to the live music of "The Happiest Big Band On Earth" - a 17 piece jazz ensemble (!) lead by the talented and wonderful Matt Grinke.

(This show will probably sell out in advance, so you must be swift as a coursing river to buy your tickets...!)

Here's what the media has to say about Geekenders productions:

"...Absolutely hilarious. The Geekenders did a fabulous job with lovingly skewering the source material."
-Livevancouver.ca

"...local impresarios Geekenders, who spare no imagination with their programming. A geek and queer-friendly collective that turns the nerdiest of fantasies into realities..."
-Vancity Buzz on Geekenders

"...Geekenders are taking the ropes and giving opportunities for females to be cast in non-traditional, male-dominated spaces. In doing so, they’re changing the fandom for the better while remaining true to its roots."
-Cecilia Lu in Living Myth Magazine
