Hey Friends, If allergies are any indication, summer is here! Team Ginger is busy putting together a bunch of projects, including a run of Ginger Nation in Halifax and an inclusive cabaret for the LGBT identified participants of the Pan Am Games. More dates are coming in, but check out the various opportunities to catch […]
What a winter this has been with back to back gigs running the gamut from hosting, to guest appearances, to a really successful run of Ginger Nation at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre. I’m finally able to sit down and relax (drink some bourbon). Here are the highlights: It was all about the singalong. The Sing-a-Long-a […]
I’m so excited to announce that Diana Love will join me on stage at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre this January. I love… Diana Love! We met backstage in Hamilton at a night hosted and produced by Paul Hutcheson. I was floored by Diana’s lewdness peppered with wholesome reminiscences of PEI: I instantly knew we shared […]
“All Hail! The Red, Orange, and Pale!” From the UK to Victoria BC, audiences have lined up to join Shawn Hitchins and his Ginger Nation. Having debuted at Edinburgh to standing-room-only houses and unprecedented media coverage, the redheaded comedian returns this January to Buddies in Bad Times with his candid story of would-be fatherhood.

UNO Fest is a unique festival that celebrates solo performers of all types: from actors to magicians […]
Hello Shawntourage! I know it’s been a long time… but a lot of things have been brewing since taking Edinburgh by storm last August. Of course there was a huge adjustment period after the Festival and I binge watched a lot of Netflix, but soon it was time to get back to work. The winter […]
Team Ginger does it again!
Transcribed from GayTimes UK, August 2013. SHAWN HITCHINS, you might notice, is ginger. Ginger, proud and on a mission to repopulate earth with fellow fiery redheads. Funny ones. He’s already started by inseminating a lesbian friend, producing a gingery little girl and enough material for a hilarious (and surprisingly emotional) 55 minute solo Edinburgh show. […]
It’s been a month since the Inaugural Ginger Pride Walk and I’m finally getting around to posting my thoughts and expressing my gratitude to everyone who participated in the walk. There was no way to predict the response this event would create. The Ginger Pride Walk went global with worldwide media coverage from Australia, Bangkok […]
