Cheap Theatre in Toronto for the Week of November 4, 2019

MoT’s 5 under $25 for the Week of November 4, 2019.

And with the end of October, we’ve been thrown right into the cold dampness of seasonal weather. The trees have almost totally lost their leaves, and the start of winter chill is in the air. It’s hibernation time! For me, that means the urge to bundle up in thick fleece blankets and not leave my house. Which means that I have to fight to get up and active and use that gym membership that burns a hole in my wallet.

So this week I’m combining my need to be active, my daughter’s love of all things dance (seriously… her dance fees each month are WHY I need to find theatre on the cheap!), and am focusing on 5 live dance experiences in Toronto with ticket prices of $25 or less, playing this week of November 4th, 2019. Check out the live dance that will have you grooving along and shaking off your hibernation vibe ‘on the cheap’!
