This week we say farewell to Ghost Light Projects, welcome Honey Soundsystem to Vancouver, and get ready to strut our stuff with The Foundation of Hope.
After eight seasons, Ghost Light Projects is closing the curtain for the final time with a production of Randie Parliament’s semi-autobiographical The Referendum (Apr 16-23). From the same company that gave us the devastating Hedwig and the Angry Inch, this final show is third installment of Parliament’s bio-journey that began with Mother May I and The Singing Butler.

The evening is hosted by Alma Bitches that will also include Seattle’s Bottom Forty, Vancouver queer underground group Sweat Factory, and the world premier of The Male Gaze, an international group art show with 100% of sales going directly to the artists.
