Lost Baggage Musical Theatre

At LBMT, we believe that the theatre is for everyone. Our mandate is to diversify musical theatre performance in Ottawa and bring more musical theatre to the city’s east-end. We strive to create rehearsal and performance spaces that allow for individuals to freely create and participate in without fear of scrutiny or harassment.  

When you come to a Lost Baggage production, expect to leave the burdens of everyday life at the door and escape for a while. Lose your baggage at Lost Baggage.

Upcoming Shows & Events


Pride Edition

LBMT is hosting a third A Quarantunes Cabaret, but this time with a little more colour… This year’s cabaret is Pride themed and is a collection of gender-bending show tunes, numbers sung by LGBTQ2S+ Broadway characters, and Pride-inspired performances – all chosen by the performers themselves.

With moving ballads like “Can’t Help Falling in Love” (All Shook Up) and “This Is Me” (The Greatest Showman) to fun uptempo tunes like “Take Me or Leave Me” (Rent) and “Two Ladies” (Cabaret), this cabaret aims to be a relatable, inclusive celebration highlighting all the colours of the spectrum.

June 23-24, 2022 | Orpheus Musical Theatre (17 Fairmont Avenue)

Evening Shows at 8:00pm | Doors at 7:00pm

Ticket Are $18 in Advance | $23 at the Door

Book, Music, and Lyrics by Scott Martin

“They sing – they dance – they die!” A hotel ballroom, 1998, and six voluptuous B-movie “Scream Queens” revive their fading acting careers by presenting a musical revue for their fans at a science fiction and horror film convention. From young newbie to seasoned grand dame, the Queens strut their stuff in song and dance to prove “I Got All of the Talent I Need.” For 90 minutes of hilarious musical mayhem, they take the audience into the world of no-budget movies with awful scripts, fake monsters and gooey “Special FX.” They even involve the audience in a screaming contest and zombie talent search. As each Queen reveals her personal story, we share their hopes and dreams, from Tonya’s love of her idol “Fay Wray” to Alexis’ advice that “Everybody Starts at the Bottom” to DeeDee’s secrets of Scream Queen longevity: “Don’t Open That Door.” British screen veteran Nadine savors her joy of being “Still In Demand” while Bianca celebrates the lifetime achievements of “Roger Corman” and Richelle laments her own elusive “Happy Endings.” They also screen original clips from their direct-to-video “scary movie” spoofs such as “Revenge of the Psycho Bimbos” and “Malibu Vampire Vixens,” all hoping to attract the attention of a popular young horror film director lurking in the audience.
