Support the 2019 Lawyer Show

“For a few months each year the women at Nightwood take a group of hard-working, analytic, often stressed-out lawyers who have careers that dictate they live most waking hours in their heads, and they teach us to live in our hearts… I have left the experience with a new passion for my life in general and inspired to make other positive choices.  In short, for a few months each year, Nightwood gives us a little magic.”
- Christine Marchetti, past cast member of The Lawyer Show

Nightwood Theatre’s Lawyer Show is among the most successful in Canada and has seen unprecedented growth and success over the past seven years.

Today, The Lawyer Show accounts for 20% of Nightwood’s annual revenue, allowing us to continue to foster exceptional female talent and produce award-winning theatre by women. Our supporters benefit from a high level of visibility among thousands of patrons and followers (8,000 on Twitter; 3,200 on Facebook; 2,800 on Instagram), all while gaining a public platform as champions of one of the most vital theatre companies in the country.

In 2017, after our production of Guys & Dolls in 2016, we produced our second musical, to great acclaim. Legally Blonde the Musical proved to be the yet another successful edition of the Lawyer Show yet: with sold-out houses for all three performances, we had a total of 1,500 audience members come out to see the show. 2018’s The Drowsy Chaperone topped all previous lawyer show with unprecedented houses and funds raised!

To celebrate our milestone 10th anniversary, we are thrilled to have added a matinee performance to the 2019 production, thereby increasing our reach from 1,500 to 2,000 audience members!

Supporters of the Lawyer Show receive direct access to a large cross-section of the legal community, as well as the opportunity to demonstrate their support of one of the most vital theatre companies in the country. Join us for the 2019 Lawyer Show and take advantage of the visibility and marketing benefits that come with aligning your organization with the legal event of the year!
