A huge thank you from all of us at QPM, Otesha, and One World. Thanks to ticket sales and donations, we were able to raise over 2500$ for these deserving and empowering charities!

Question Period (The Musical!) is back in session

Hit FringeFest musical comedy raises the roof on the House of Commons

 If you think sparks are going to fly when Members of Parliament head back to the Hill later this month, look out for Question Period The Musical! The irreverent, gut-busting musical comedy is returning from its riding in a Coast Guard helicopter (naturally), touching down at Ottawa’s Arts Court Theatre on February 4 at 8:00 p.m. Day of show update: The evening show is sold out but we there are still tickets available for the “preview” show on February 4 at 2:30 p.m.

Voted Fan Favourite at the 2011 Ottawa Fringe Festival, the show that broke audience records is back by popular demand to kick off the first weekend of Winterlude and raise da roof of the House of Commons with slam raps, grunge rock, Broadway numbers, subliminal social messaging, and even a classic rock love song to the GST.

Join us and follow the adventures of the hippest new MP as he navigates the cynical and hopeful sides of federal politics in a non-partisan and light-hearted romp.

Written by Ed Gillis, directed by Darrell Harvey, and performed by an all-Ottawa cast,  proceeds from the show go to support the work of local charities: The Otesha Project (www.otesha.ca) and One World Arts (www.oneworldarts.ca).

“So funny, it will make you pee. Bring your diapers.”
– Audience member, 2011 Ottawa Fringe Festival

Tickets are $20, available for purchase in person at the Arts Court box office (2 Daly Ave) or by calling 613-564-7240.

The show will sell-out fast, so don’t delay!

    I can’t count how many times I laughed out loud at the antics (and lyrics) of this musical. Seated in an auditorium, the ‘parties’ pitted the two halves of the crowd against one another. We cheered and booed and heckled (certainly echoing what we see happening in QP!). Great way to get the audience involved and thinking about what it actually means to be a politician — a job I think we all tend to underestimate. I hope I can make it on Saturday, I definitely wouldn’t mind seeing it again. 🙂

    Please, I am begging you, put this show on again so I can take my husband who will howl. So much talent. So much truth. 10/10!
