Will you go to the prom with us?

Join TC Productions as they throw an epic prom-themed party on May 25th, at the Victoria Edelweiss Club—giving you the chance to relive your best night, or redo your worst!

The theme for this adult ‘Prom’ is described as ‘80s maximalism’, with live music, drag, interactive art installations, GoGo Dancers and more.

Focused as a fundraiser, Prom is held to both uplift and connect local arts communities, and to raise money for Raven Trust and two grassroots community organizations helping with the crisis in Gaza. 

Attendees will be treated to top-notch performances from a diverse lineup of local BIPOC talent!

This includes drag artists Chilean local king Sylvester Stalletto, Mumbai-born dance icon Badshah, Japanese-Canadian Robyn Hearts, Filipino heartthrob Oliver Clozoff, Latina singer songwriters Hoélune Rosé and Sofia Sol, Syrian DJ Shami!ngo, and local Funk/Jazz/Soul Band the Phigs.

In a media release, it is said that TC Productions’ Tasha Cadence has long awaited this blending of live music and drag, excited to connect two local art communities that will frequently attend each other’s events, but rarely perform together. 

Not only will Prom present a harmonious blend of cultures and creatives, it will also help support causes in need. 

Also available for guests will be raffles, silent auction items, a photobooth, locally sourced beverages and more!

Tickets are $35 if purchased ahead of time and $40 at the door. If cost is a barrier for you, they are offering low income tickets for a limited time, as well as BIPOC discounted tickets upon request.
