Cheap Theatre in Toronto for the Week of January 6th, 2015

Live shows for $15 or less

If you’re a fan of the Toronto Fringe Festival, or small, indie theatre in general, then do yourself a favour, and check out Fringe’s Next Stage Theatre Festival, which kicks off this Thursday! For this week’s Cheap Theatre listing, I’ve highlighted five of the shows that I’m really excited about (particularly Snack Music, created by the same folks behind Kitt and Jane, one of my favourite shows from last year’s Fringe). You can see each show for $15, or get a pass for several shows, and save even more! For ticket purchases, and to see schedules, and all the other shows playing, check out the Toronto Fringe website!
