Leaping Thespians is an award winning woman's theatre group bringing stories of lesbians' lives to anyone who will watch. The company debuted in Nelson in the 1980's, and now resides in Vancouver BC, Canada. We started Leaping Thespians because we have to create the plays we want to see, since lesbians need entertainment too. We like to produce original work and nurture emerging talents on stage and behind the scenes. Find out about our productions, or how to get involved.
