Get ready to trip out, cook out and kumbaya for Rethink Breast Cancer as Boobyball brings you CAMP BOOBY! Setting hundreds of Calgary’s hippest hipsters (and their inner archers) ablaze in nostalgia, this year’s glam fest is taking you straight back to the good ol’ days of sleep-away camp – to the rock where you had your first kiss, to the dock where you took your first stride jump, and to the halter tops and lumber jackets you once coveted like a Smythe blazer on a clearance rack. So hike up your shorts and get your camp on for Camp Booby, where city swank meets bug-juice cocktails, urban bonfires, boondoggle booty, Sadie Hawkins dances, wiener-eating contests, tuck shop surprises, and s’more – all in support of colour-wars champion Rethink Breast Cancer.

Intimate Apparel

October 25, 2012

New York City, 1905. A tender romance blossoms between a young African-American seamstress and a Jewish fabric salesman, while her suitor woos her in letters from afar. This inspiring story of hope transcends class, caste and colour to celebrate the power of love and personal strength. Acclaimed Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Lynn Nottage weaves a rich and sensuous tapestry, as tantalizing as a glimpse of handmade lace.

Stage & Screen

Theatre Calgary Presents: Pride & Prejudice

Time: 07:30 pm - 11:00 pm / Location: 220 9 Ave SE Calgary, AB T2G 5C4, Canada
October 25, 2012

In Jane Austen’s bright and witty comedy, getting married isn’t as simple as falling in love. Eligible young men and women must run a gamut of dances and drawing rooms where gossip and scandal threaten at every turn. For headstrong Elizabeth Bennet and proud Mr. Darcy, the very maze of English society that brought them together also threatens to keep them apart.


One of the greatest romantic comedies ever. An unabashed celebration of budding new love, drenched with gorgeous Regency dresses on beautiful women as they search for their ideal men. Sigh.
