To enter the draw, all you need to do is leave a comment* sometime before 7:15pm Wednesday.

More detailed information about the show:


CHRIS CRADDOCK, author of such hits as “BoyGroove” and “BASH’d! a gay rap opera” returns to the Fringe with a solo creation unlike any other. It’s Moving Along.

Moving Along is performed by its author. It’s a semi-autobiographical work delivered by Craddock, as he runs the lighting design himself, with his theatrical invention: The Electro-chair! The chair features household dimmers sunk into the arms, which allow Craddock to run the lights himself, perfectly timed to his mile a minute story-telling, hilarious and touching in turns.

Moving Along was filmed by Creative Atlantic in Halifax for the Singular Series aired on Bravo!

Critics had this to say:

“The writing is as electric as the chair, and the performance will make you gasp!”
– Liz Nichols, Edmonton Journal

“Craddock is nothing less than brilliant”
– Martin Morrow, Calgary Herald

“This show is brilliant!… See it! See it! See it!”
– Kurt Spenrath, SEE Magazine

“Craddock is absolutely Brilliant”
-Anna Lazowski, Winnipeg Free Press

  1. Great show.

    It’s a bit like watching one of those travel guides or user guides that have lots of little call out boxes in the margins in the way that Chris Craddock would do a long riff and then change thoughts by calling out “moving along…” and going into a shorter bit headed by a sidebar or other quick thought. Fast moving, lots of funny stuff in it. Be aware that the lighting might bother you if you don’t like strobe lighting.

    Thanks for the tickets!
