Fay Slift



The LadyBearExtraordinaire was birthed in late 2007. She took her first steps onto the stage at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre in Toronto. She captivated the audience with her humour, energy and beauty. She has been performing ever since.

Fay loves the sounds of laughter, cheers and applause and makes it a point to ensure every audience member leaves with a smile. She has been privileged to work with some of Toronto’s finest performers, as well as artists from around the world.

During the day, Fay can be found performing her most favourite role as an elementary school teacher. She integrates the Arts into every aspect of her teaching and is inspired, daily by her students. 20+ years working in education culminated with a recent performance at Pride Toronto 2015 presentation of Drag On! where she was joined onstage with several of her students as back up dancers. She is so excited about future adventures with her students in large scale productions.

The World can be a challenging, but Fay encourages you to drift off with her to a place where everyone is welcome and joy is always delivered. Come let her put a smile on your face too.
