For a lot of kids (and university/college students), today’s the first day of school! For those of us who are lucky enough to be past the days of homework and required readings, this week’s Cheap Theatre can serve as a different sort of education. This week’s listing includes one show that is a well-known classic, as well as some that explore innovative themes and performance styles. There are also two solo shows, both of which feature talented performers who know a thing or two about keeping an audience entertained. And all of them are available for $20 or less – so go get educated with a little Cheap Theatre!
Instead of thinking about the fact that it’s already September (how?!), why not spend your Labour Day Monday planning out all the theatre you’d like to see in Toronto this week? The listings are after the jump, and anything with two asterisks and highlighted in red comes highly recommended by our Editor, Samantha.
Variety, they say, is the spice of life. But spices are expensive. Saffron? Clove? Sure, they can really add to a meal. But so can ketchup. So in the spirit of ketchup, this week’s Cheap Theatre listing focuses on giving your week a bit of variety and flavour without breaking the bank. Some are specifically variety shows. Others simply use a variety of art forms in their productions. But all of them are $20 or less per ticket. So go give your week some theatrical variety on the cheap!
Can you believe it’s the last week of August? We can’t. But we CAN believe that there’s still a lot of cool theatre going on in the city.

We’re filling the last week of August with theatre, and so should you!
