Here's what the media has had to say about other Geekenders productions:

"...Absolutely hilarious. The Geekenders did a fabulous job with lovingly skewering the source material."

"...local impresarios Geekenders, who spare no imagination with their programming. A geek and queer-friendly collective that turns the nerdiest of fantasies into realities..."
-Vancity Buzz

"...Geekenders are taking the ropes and giving opportunities for females to be cast in non-traditional, male-dominated spaces. In doing so, they’re changing the fandom for the better while remaining true to its roots."
-Cecilia Lu in Living Myth Magazine

Tickets are $12 at the door, or $10 in advance through Rio Theatre Tickets
