Cheap Theatre in Toronto for the Week of October 28, 2019

MoT’s 5 under $25 for the Week of October 28, 2019.

Even though my kids aren’t yet, I’m a little (ok, a lot!) over all of the Hallowe’en spookiness going around. And, I’m broke because I’ve bought their costumes, and all that candy to hand out (which I am proud to say has been in my house for 2 weeks and hasn’t been opened!). But I really do need a break from the eerie and creepy.

Happily, there’s a whole bunch of not-at-all-spooky theatre to check out this week in Toronto – and for a price the I can afford right now. Under the cut are 5 live theatre experiences in Toronto with ticket prices of $25 or less, playing the week of October 28st, 2019. Check out the live shows that will have you loving theatre ‘on the cheap’!
