Me and the Sky

Here’s a great show to help kick off Pride week in July!! This unique and empowering one-woman show brings together classic drag performance, with contemporary musical theatre flair! It follows the story of a wide-eyed young woman looking for love and her place in the world, ultimately finding all the purpose and validation she needs within herself. Flyin’ Solo is set to Broadway hits from shows like Legally Blonde, Shrek, and The Addams Family, and features interactive comedy, live vocals, and colourful costumes! Audiences have called it an “absolutely phenomenal show” and said, “I had goosebumps at the first song!”

Tickets available now at the Guild box office on 111 Queen Street, over the phone at (902) 620-3333 or online at theguildpei.com
