Inglorious Women: Toronto

Toronto based performers come together as Inglorious Women: Toronto to raise funds for underrepresented women in need of legal assistance and counselling.

May 16, 2018. Toronto, Ontario: Inglorious B Productions will be donating all proceeds from its inaugural event: Inglorious Women: Toronto to the Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic.  The concert, featuring established and up and coming operatic and musical theatre talent, will take place at 7:30 pm, on June 1st at St Andrew’s Church, downtown.

Co-artistic Directors Danie Friesen and Renée Salewski, have chosen to make the first event their company presents an event that gives back.  The decision was prompted by the stream of voices flowing from the theatrical and musical communities over the past year, calling out sexual harassment and assault in our workplaces.  By donating the funds raised to the Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic, Danie, Renée and the over 20 performers donating their time and talents, hope make a sizable contribution to an organization that helps underrepresented women build lives free from violence by providing counselling, legal advice and fees.

Inglorious Women: Toronto will feature over 20 performing artists who will treat the audience to some of their favourite classical and musical theatre numbers, with a few entertaining surprises along the way. Kids under 12 are free at the door in order to encourage families to attend and educate kids about advocacy.
