Women On Screen: Live at the Gladstone - An evening of performance, socializing, and celebrating women in the entertainment industry!
Hosted by Naomi Snieckus (Mr. D) and presented in partnership with VICE Canada & Firecracker Department, this event will feature live readings of the web series pilot scripts developed in the 2018 Women On Screen Web Series Incubator. Eight talented female-identifying writers participated in the six-week development incubator program for short-form web series featuring female-driven content. Performing their work will be a cast of Toronto's top actors, which in previous years have included talent from hit shows such as Kim's Convenience, Designated Survivor, Star Trek: Discovery, and more!
In addition to a cash bar, snacks on offer from the Gladstone Hotel and live entertainment, there will be an online silent auction preceding the event and prizes to be won on the night of the showcase from some of Toronto's most exciting and eclectic local businesses.
Entry is by donation and all proceeds will contribute directly towards Women On Screen's future programming efforts.
***Please note that the staged performance will be recorded for an episode of the podcast Firecracker Department.
