What we're about

Welcome to Canada's largest theatre goers club.

If you like going to plays, musicals, comedy clubs and other arts events, but don't want to go alone ... you will love Thumbs Up!

One of our mandates is affordable theatre. This means we actively seek ticket discounts when possible. We also go to performances where rush and pay-what-you-can tickets are offered.

We also go to non-theatrical events, including concerts, street festivals, walking tours, day trips and many other events.

There are lots of fun get togethers at affordable cafes and restaurants before and after events.

It's FREE to join our group.

THE PILOTS ("Picoli") - Fantastic musical from Poland ONLINE Free

Join us for THE PILOTS, a musical featuring a whirlwind story about difficult choices made by heroes in the face of dramatic events. It's a fantastic, professional 2017 Polish musical production (called "Picoli" in Polish) with English subtitles. This is a gem that will likely never be seen on stage abroad, but this is your chance to experience it. This will be a virtual event with the show available for online viewing.

THE SHOW: A deeply emotional tale about love, brutally interrupted by the outbreak of World War 2. The musical is inspired by historical events of the 1930s and 1940s, primarily the Battle of Britain. The story centres on Jan, a young Polish pilot, and Nina, a cabaret actress and singer in the pre-war Warsaw. More info: http://piloci.teatrroma.pl/the-pilots/about-the-show

LIVE GUIDED EVENT - An Authentic Aussie Barbie on the Beach AUSTRALIA Free

Join us for AN AUTHENTIC AUSSIE BARBIE ON THE BEACH, a live BBQ on the beach DownUnder. This fun event will be led by 5-star Australian guide/BBQ chef/actor Alexander Mollen who will narrate and stream it LIVE from a sandy beach near Melbourne, Australia.

SEE "HOW TO SIGN UP" INSTRUCTIONS BELOW.

THE BBQ: G'day mateys! You haven't really experienced Australia unless you've had a true Australian Barbie on the beach. There's more to an Aussie BBQ than just chucking a few shrimps and snags on a hot plate. Australian barbies are about the ritual, the company, the energy and.. the outfits (yes, they're important too!). Come join this exclusive summer live stream as Alexander, a true Aussie, shows you how to have a proper Australian Barbie... And in true Aussie style, we'll be having it on the beach with a couple of other blokes and sheilas, playing beach cricket, and having a bonzer time! Looking forward to seeing you then, mates! Oh, and don't forget your sunscreen!

*To clarify, we won't be barbequing Barbie dolls or playing with actual crickets on the beach... That's just how we speak here in Australia. All will be explained on the day!

OUR BBQ CHEF: Alexander is a storyteller who wants to live in a world filled with appreciation for other cultures, free travel and guacamole as a global currency (we’re allowed to dream right?!). When he is not touring, Alexander works as an actor, filmmaker, blog writer ... and does the occasional BBQ.

WICKED - Award-winning musical ONLINE Free

Online event

Join us for WICKED, an award-winning musical set in the Land of Oz long before Dorothy arrives. This will be a virtual event with the show available for online viewing.

THE SHOW: Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.”
