Naked Boys Reading: "Bring Your Own Reading" Auditions II

Naked Boys Reading (NBR) is an internationally produced literary salon featuring unclothed men reading to you: a blissful combination of literature, book nerds, and, of course, nudity! This is a show for all genders and sexualities.

★ ★ ★

"BYOR" = Bring Your Own Reading. This is our brand new auditions show featuring readers serving up their own selections in either their birthday suits or their choice of sexy underwear. If a new reader impresses us, then he will be invited to read on the big stage at our regular monthly show. Audience members will be invited to help with judging each performance.

★ ★ ★

We are committed to body-positivity and celebrating diversity. We strive to reflect the diversity of our communities at every show; our success is dependent upon the availability of readers.

Tickets are $11.75 each. If you're unable to pay online, or if the ticket price is a financial barrier for you, then please contact us via: ottawa@nakedboysreading.ca

As always, tickets may be purchased via:
tickets.nakedboysreading.ca

Doors will open at 7pm. The show will begin at 8pm sharp. Seating is first-come, first-served: The sooner you arrive, the better the view you'll have.

Tickets are refundable up to seven (7) days before the show. Each ticket is also transferable; if you can't use it, you can give or sell it to somebody else.

We regret that the venue is not accessible to some people; it is accessible only via stairs.

We acknowledge that we operate on the traditional and unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishnaabeg people.
