Here’s what the media has to say about Geekenders productions:
“…Absolutely hilarious. The Geekenders did a fabulous job with lovingly skewering the source material.”
“…local impresarios Geekenders, who spare no imagination with their programming. A geek and queer-friendly collective that turns the nerdiest of fantasies into realities…”
-Vancity Buzz on Geekenders
“…Geekenders are taking the ropes and giving opportunities for females to be cast in non-traditional, male-dominated spaces. In doing so, they’re changing the fandom for the better while remaining true to its roots.”
-Cecilia Lu in Living Myth Magazine
