At 8 pm, seat yourself to a hilarious evening with Elvira Kurt.
Camp Wendake is proud to host OUT and OUTSTANDING lesbian comic, Elvira Kurt. A Toronto native, and alumna of Second City, she has earned herself international recognition as a comic, actor, host and writer.
Growing up in Toronto, Elvira Kurt spent much of her time in front of the bathroom mirror delivering jokes. Her hairbrush doubled as a microphone. The only child of Hungarian immigrants, Kurt says her parents disapproved of her comedic aspirations. “Their whole thinking was, “We gave up everything to come to the new country, to the New World. So, you’re going to be a lawyer or a doctor – something that will allow you to take care of us as we get older,” she says. “You’re certainly not going to tell jokes for a living.”
Yet for 40 years, that’s exactly what she has done. On Friday, October 25, this internationally renowned comedienne will take to the Aeolian Hall stage to participate in a fundraiser for Camp Wendake.
Camp Wendake is a one-week residential camp program for people living with HIV, their families and caregivers. Camp Wendake is an amazing contradiction! People gather because of a common health concern but find freedom from focusing upon the disease for a brief time and find an opportunity to celebrate life in a community where HIV/AIDS in the norm. People may choose to attend camp in order to learn and share more about coping with their overall health and social issues. Or they may come for the rest and refreshment of a caring and understanding community.

We invited you to be part of the further development of this exciting script JUDY: Stonewalled!. As we move toward the 50th Anniversary (June 2019) of the Stonewall uprising and the Death of Judy Garland, we wanted to share this unique story with as many people as possible. Thank you for being part of this exciting process.
The Public readings of this NEWLY expanded script with new music and orchestrations happened at the Arts Project during Pride London 2017. We asked you to show up, watch the performance and share your thoughts with us afterwards, and you did!
ABOUT JUDY: Stonewalled!
“On June 22, 1969 Judy Garland dies at age 47. In the early morning hours of June 28, a community fights back. These two worlds collide in this NEWLY Expanded fictional theatrical production with music. The play takes place at a tribute show to Judy Garland in a little cabaret bar just down the street from the Stonewall Inn. The action happens as the infamous riots break out... JUDY: Stonewalled! is a glimpse into what it meant to be gay before ‘Stonewall’ and those critical moments where decisions are made that can change, everything!”
EMCEE - Campy and dressed stylistically. He is the biggest Judy Garland fan.
...of the original London Fringe script - "Profound and gorgeous and moving" - Jeff Culbert - The London Yodeller
Murder, disco, glamour and glitz wrapped with a funky original score to create an ecstatic night of fun. Energetic, funny and wildly camp, with sparkling one-liners and excellent, funky music! - THE SCOTSMAN,"The Rocky Horror show for the Millennium" - The Daily Mail
