SAVING SOULS, ONE SCREAMING FAN AT A TIME!
Full of sharp parody, sinfully delicious songs and irreverent humour, this spoof about a boy-band trying to save souls - one screaming fan at a time - has been a huge hit across North America. Hailed as "high-octane entertainment"(Talkin' Broadway), Altar Boyz is a delightful mix of laughter-inducing lyrics, MTV-style choreography, and lots of lighthearted fun for audiences of all denominations.
A smash-hit at the 2009 Winnipeg Fringe Festival, Altar Boyz is back to rock the PTE Mainstage, complete with the original cast of Boyz.
"A 90-minute tornado of tasty pop tunes and nifty moves." -- Star-Ledger, New York

"Last night, I took in the opening performance of PTE’s Altar Boyz and let me tell you, it was a heavenly night full of toe-tapping pop songs, cute twenty-something crooners, and tongue-in-cheek bible thumping." Kulture by Katherine blog
"The performance itself was so much fun. The boys were hilarious and they played off each other really well." "I brought the mother dear with me to see the show, and we spent much of it laughing along with the rest of the audience." "Ultimately this show is all about having a great time, laughing together and enjoying an immensely fun boy band spoof." Living Healthy in the Real World blog
