Metro Studio After Dark: The Man That Got AwayJoey Bulman & Vivian Vanderpuss
Growing up queer in small towns leaves a lasting impression. Sometimes you don’t recognize this until you meet someone like you. Two friends and queer artists who both grew up in conservative small towns in rural parts of the country found they have a shared experience even though they were raised 3,000km apart.
This new piece is an exploration of identity, the power of art to connect and overcome, and the joy in finding queer community. Through drag, re-interpreted musical theatre classics, and personal stories, Joey and Vivian remind us that fitting in, finding yourself, and sharing your voice are common themes that connect us all, no matter where we grew up, or how fabulous we turned out.
Please indicate any accessibility needs, including wheelchair accessible seating or if you require seating with no stairs, in the provided field, and we will make sure to assign seating that works for you. Note that most tables are on tiered risers accessed up stairs.
All patrons aged 12+ are required to show proof of vaccination. To meet the legal requirements of the PHO, staff at the theatre will ask to see proof of vaccination and one piece of valid government-issued photo identification for all ticket holders in your party. Patrons can show their BC Vaccine Card either digitally or as a paper copy, or an out of province proof of vaccination. Note, photo ID is only required for patrons aged 19+.
All BC residents are able to access their vaccine cards by downloading your digital QR proof of vaccination gov.bc.ca/vaccinecard.
When you arrive at The Metro Studio to see a show, please be patient, and a staff member will check the vaccine card and photo ID for all members of your group before you enter the theatre. Be prepared by having your BC Vaccine Card QR code ready to display (or any proof of vaccination if from out of Province) along with your ID before proceeding to the box office tent.
