PPR’s ANNUAL CABARET OF LOVE!
June 12 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Join us in honouring Parkdale Project Read, a community literacy organization celebrating over 30 years of community adult literacy work in the heart of Parkdale. At Parkdale Project Read we are committed to supporting adults to realize their learning goals in a safe, positive, and supportive learning environment. Our work is rooted in a learner-centred approach that focuses on literacy from a critical perspective, and as a tool for community building.
Parkdale Project Read’s Annual Cabaret of Love will feature dance, spoken word, music and performances representing all the diversity of Parkdale. Please purchase tickets in advance at our Canada Helps site here.
Heather Lash will MC the event!
This year’s Cabaret of Love will feature:
- Shout Sister Choir
- Murphy Browne of Ngoma Griots in an interactive African storytelling performance
- Ms Nookie Galore, presenting an excerpt from the new play, SARAP: the FilipinX Drag Horror Cooking Show!
And many more!
There will be a DJ and dance floor starting at 9:00, so bring your boogie too.
This is a pay-what-you-can event, open to all members of our community. If you can support PPR by buying a $15 or $20 ticket in advance, or paying $20 at the door, we urge you to do that. And if dinner is in your budget, we urge you to reserve a table with Lula Lounge, 416-588-0307, as a vote of thanks to Lula for supporting this event. Lula will be giving 10% of all proceeds from food and drink to PPR, and dinner reservations guarantee you seating for the event.
So come as you are, pay what you can, have dinner if you like, and dance, dance, dance to celebrate over 30 years of community literacy in Parkdale.
