*Not all pics from the Granville Island Stage run, or the BC Tour in 2009 are still available. You waited really long to look at them… what’s up with that? Try photo bombing one of the boyz the next time you see them on the street or at church. That’s probably a fun challenge for you… photo bomb all of the guys who were in the Arts Club production of Altar Boyz at any given time. You’ll need to photo bomb Jeremy Crittenden, Geoffrey Stevens, Jak Barradell, Michael Culp, Vincent Tong, David Hurwitz and Charles McEachern. Show us the pics and we’ll find a prize or something. Maybe some cake.
Hey girlz! A night out for soul savin’ is always a tonne of fun, to be sure. This year, the boyz have decided to make it even easier for you to cleanse your soul… with wine.
We’ve heard plenty of confessions saying you can’t get enough of the communion wine, so the boyz are letting you bring your Blood of Christ into the houze during their raise the praise tour in Vancouver.
Oh sure, many people are also bringing beer and cocktails in from the Revue Stage Bar, but don’t tell the boyz. Especially Luke. Dear lord, don’t you dare tell Luke. He really needs to drive the boyz home after the show.
Before the show, our fanz submit their deepest, darkest (and often dirtiest) secrets in our Confessional in the lobby.
Post show, the boyz spend their time reviewing said confessionz to identify any souls that are likely to find themselves weighed down with sin somewhere between their seat in the Revue stage and their car in the parking lot.
Here’s the latest round! Real people. Real confessionz.
Hey there, Altarholics! The boyz just had some sweet new pix taken by the brilliant David Cooper (yes, we saved his soul). Check out Michael Culp, Geoff Stevens, Brandyn Eddy, Jeremy Crittenden and Jak Barradell in Altar Boyz.
But when they arrived on Granville Island and went to set up their old dressing room again, they found hundreds of cans of spray glitter, heaps of roller-skates and a flying horse.
Evidently some kind of ancient Greek cult acts are playing out on the Granville Island stage, albeit with an Australian accent. Sinful, the boyz are sure.
After some prayers, the boyz tour manager, Bill Millerd escorted them out of the building and introduced them to the Revue Stage, where they’ll spend the summer saving souls.
Mark, after being forced to do a few Hail Mary’s after looting some skates and glitter, was very excited to see their new stage, new set and the crazy intimate venue. Juan was mostly excited about how close the ladies in the first few rows would be to the boyz.
Matthew was still praying following a harrowing van ride while an exhausted Luke took a very deep nap on the steering wheel.
Yo, Vancouver, the Altar Boyz are back in town and they’re better than ever! Intent on saving souls and raising spirits with their ability to “drop the funk” in freaky five-part harmony, Altar Boyz is a delicious send-up of boy bands, full of sharp parody, sinfully spectacular dancing, and infectious energy. With lyrics like “Girl, you make me wanna wait” and “Jesus called me on my cell phone,” this irreverent musical comedy will wash your soul clean with laughter. These pop heartthrobs first hit Vancouver in the summer of 2009 at the Arts Club’s Granville Island Stage, following an Arts Club tour. In total, over 34,000 audience members saw them “raise the praise.”
Altar Boyz ran Off-Broadway from 2005 to 2010, gaining rapturous critical and audience acclaim while becoming the 9th longest-running Off-Broadway musical of all time. It won the 2005 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical, as well as both the 2006 and 2007 Broadway.com Audience Favorite Award. Kevin Del Aguila’s book was also nominated for the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Book in 2005. Altar Boyz has been mounted all over the world, including Korea, Hungary, Finland, Australia, and the Philippines.
