Fall 2004

Show Description


The First Ever Queen's Players Toronto Show!

A mashup of the dudes from Old School and the ladies from Sex and the City served as the inaugural Players show in Toronto.


Mitch, Frank, Beanie and Dean Pritchard have moved to Toronto to start a new fraternity while Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte, having exhausted all their options in New York, are in Toronto hunting for men. Joining them are Kim Bauer from 24, Paris Hilton, the foul-mouthed wedding singer from Old School and Evil Genious Mikhail Baryshnikov.


Hilarity ensued, and a new Toronto tradition of PLAYERS was born!
