Aaron Collier is excited to bring Heist’s new production “Princess Rules” to Club Didi for Lethbridge Pride Festival, tonight , June 16 and Sunday night , June 17 at  8 p.m..
 Princess Rules is the sequel to the award winning Princess show.

“We’ve toured Nova Scotia with it,but this will be the first time in Lethbridge. Which is nice because  the characters were created in Lethbridge  through Club Didi and Theatré Outré in 2916, said Collier from Halifax, who created the characters with Richie Wilcox.

Princess Rules is a new journey of Princess Edward where she takes her career to new heights no matter the cost. In Princess Rules this live action anime performance, Princess Edward reinvents her pop star persona and goes rogue to produce her new show. But when mysterious floating orbs threaten her career and even her life, she must learn how to listen to her true self before she loses everything.

“It’s a play, but it is entirely lip synched to live anime,” Collier said.
“Princess Edward is popular but wants to change her focus,” he continued.

This multimedia theatre extravaganza is directed by Montreal artist Jean-Pierre Cloutier and features projection and video by Aaron Collier and Nick Bottomley, costumes by Emlyn Murray plus illustrations by Matt Miller and claymation by Deonie Hudson.


“You don’t have to have seen the first show to enjoy Princess Rules. It‘s very theatrical,” Collier said.

The show stars Aaron Collier as the titular character Princess Edward, along with supporting cast members Richie Wilcox as Abel T. Suckizone, Jay Whitehead as Didi d'Edada and  Lara Lewis as Valet Girl.

Princess Rules was nominated for 12 Theatre Nova Scotia Merritt Awards and awarded four- outstanding supporting
actor, outstanding costume design, outstanding choreography and outstanding sound design.

Heist is the brainchild and new creative platform for Richie Wilcox and Aaron Collier. The company is committed to creating, producing, and presenting innovative, genre-bending and queerly playful performances in Halifax and beyond. Further information can be found at
“ We’re really excited to bring it to Lethbridge,” Collier said.
